About Carol

Using and learning language is tough for everyone, but with some tenacity and the right approach, it becomes easier. Let me help you begin, continue, brush up, and perfect your language skills in English, native or non-native, or in Spanish. Whether you are a young student in MS or HS, an adult student in college, or a professional looking to move up in your career, I can help you build your skills higher.

For ESL/ESOL students--I have a TEFL Certification from the Boston Language Institute and was previously a certified ESL Tutor with ProLiteracy of America. I have worked with teenagers and adults off and on as a volunteer tutor throughout college. No matter your level, I can help you establish your goals and help you overcome your linguistic barriers.

Para estudiantes hispanohablantes que desean aprender o merjorar el ingles--he trabajado tanto con adolescentes como adultos. He completado el programa de TEFL del Instituto de Idiomas de Boston (Boston Language Institute) ademas de un pequeno certificado para hacer tutoria de ingles proporcionado por ProLiteracy of America. No importa el nivel en que este Ud. en este momento. Yo le puedo ayudar a establecer sus metas para poder superar las barreras linguisticas.

Learning Spanish: I have had 8 years of formal Spanish language instruction--including immersion experiences in Costa Rica and Mexico mentored by veteran instructors. My experiences have helped me learn the important milestones when learning another language. I can teach you the mechanics if you are just starting out, but more importantly I can help train you to become a better listener and quicker on your feet. Most students with the desire already have a handful of knowledge that is just swimming in their brain. I can help you train your brain to function in Spanish without relying on constant translation--the key to becoming fluent.
