About Sara

My inspiration for learning Spanish came at the age of seven. At that age, I met my best friend from Mexico, María. Her mother was a gracious host and took me in as her own, yet treated me as a royal guest. I began to get frustrated by the fact that I couldn't communicate directly with this beautiful woman, who I thought of as my second mom. I had to use the translation from my best friend to communicate with her. That is when I decided I'd like to be empowered with the skill to speak Spanish and bridge the communication gap that could open up a whole new world of friends and opportunity.

I went on to take Spanish in college and received my Bachelor's in Spanish and continued on to obtain my teaching credential. I've studied abroad in Spain and Costa Rica and enjoyed working at an adventure company in La Fortuna, Costa Rica. I've taught almost seven years of high school Spanish and am now at home for a few years with my preschool and toddler aged children. I'm passing on to them the skill and love for the Spanish language. It brings me great joy to pass on this love and skill set to others.

I think that I have a great understanding of the needs of those who are learning Spanish as their second language, because I was once in their same shoes. It allows me an upper-hand with foreseeing potential frustrations or difficulties the student may have. I offer real world experience and techniques on mastering the language. Plus, I make it fun! I strongly emphasize the importance of staying in the target language. I encourage Spanish conversation, and am eager to help with grammar and pronunciation and offer helpful tips to set you up for success.

Contact me to start learning from an experienced, credentialed teacher! I look forward to hearing from you.
