I am a recently retired professor (University of Nevada, Reno) with many years of teaching experience in various areas and age levels. At present I am looking to use my knowledge and skills to help students who might need some extra assistance, while earning some supplementary retirement income for myself.

I have a PhD in Spanish literature (with a minor in Latin) plus
an M.A. in Spanish and English, and
a certificate in English as a Second Language (ESL)
At the university level I have taught Spanish language, literature and culture, Core Humanities (including writing in English), and various world literature courses, particularly Spanish, Latin American, English, American, and European literatures.
At the adult level I have taught English as a Second Language (ESL), both in the U.S. and abroad, to speakers of a variety of foreign languages.
Before graduate school I also taught Spanish at the high school level.
I do not normally work with young children.

My primary interests would be helping individuals, 16 and over, to improve their writing, grammar, and vocabulary in both languages (Spanish or English).
My special interest is in teaching ESL, particularly conversation and accent reduction.
I also tutor Core Humanities 201 and 202. as well as English (writing, grammar, and vocabulary), especially English conversation.

I am also qualified to teach basic music notation and beginning piano (I am a performing jazz/Latin vocalist and former church organist).

In terms of location, my policy is to work with students at the UNR library, public libraries, or coffee shops. I do not normally come to students' homes or workplaces. I look forward to sharing my knowledge with you!

Enjoyed This Class So Much

I enjoyed this class so much. Judith taught me a lot of interesting things, including history, right movement, literature and poem. All these things are so fascinating and attractive to me. She also helped me improve my vocabulary and my sentence grammer.

Advanced Spanish Tutor

Judith is just who I was looking for in a Spanish tutor. I need someone who is expert in grammar, knows Spanish literature and history and speaks fluently. She is fun to work with.
