About Cynthia Felicia

Language is a valuable tool not only in the process of communication but to attain a better understanding of a culture. From the time I was a child I was interested in learning to speak Spanish and French. My heritage is predominantly Spanish so that was my primary foreign language focus but I also studied and learned French. English was my first language although my mother, grandparents, and other family members spoke Spanish as well. I began studying Spanish in the 7th grade and French in the 9th grade. I continued to study both and attained a degree in Spanish and Communication with a focus on Intercultural Communication from the University of New Mexico in May of 1996. I understand the challenge, work and time practicing that is required to learn a second or subsequent language through class room activity. I would be a great tutor because I was once a beginner myself and am patient, encouraging, and fun. I welcome the opportunity to work with those who are interested in learning to read, write and speak Spanish. Language is a valuable tool not only in the process of communication but to attain a better understanding of a culture.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Spanish

Shona, what I bring to Spanish tutoring is the love for languages, an understanding of the challenge of learning a second language in one's adolescence because that is when I started taking Spanish classes, and an understanding of the academic side of learning a language - the structure of the language and what may be helpful ways to think about grammatical concepts in a different language. I think it's awesome that he is in an immersion class because while it may feel uncomfortable in some ways, it is an excellent way to learn a second language. Look forward to talking with you further and tutoring your son given the opportunity.
