About Katherine

I am a recent graduate from the University of Nevada, Reno. I obtained two bachelor's degrees- one in Spanish with a minor in Translation and the other in Community Health Sciences. I have been learning and using my Spanish daily from the time I was 12 years old! I work once a year at the Safari Club International convention as an interpreter and translator for an Argentinian hunting group. I also have experience interpreting for Spanish speaking patients during their medical procedures.

I love to teach! I've tutored Spanish and Anthropology and received great feedback from my students. I have over 15 years of Spanish under my belt and have learned many tricks to the language along the way. Knowing another language has opened countless doors and hearts in my life. I am a firm believer that the more knowledge you have, the more powerful you are because it's something no one can take away from you.

I think what sets me apart from other Spanish speakers that have Spanish as their second language is my fluency. Being able to read and write Spanish is great, but speaking it well is an art form. I incorporate music into my study, because it trains the ear and not the eye.

Learning Spanish and German has undoubtedly made me a better English speaker. My advanced linguistic courses in college taught me about how the mouth forms sounds, and how those sounds compare across languages. I have a knack for the written word, and truly enjoy helping people communicate better using the best of their language.

I encourage you, as students, to continue mastering your language skills. I promise you it will serve you well if you put the time in to be great at it- which is true with anything in life. Strive to be excellent, and contact me if you'd like help in your journey!

Highly recommended Spanish tutor!

Katherine not only helped me to learn Spanish, she gave me all kinds of interesting tools to excel at the subject. She had me listening to Spanish music, reading, and speaking the language. I had an overwhelming amount of material I needed to cover in a short amount of time, and she helped me to put together and stick to a schedule so I could achieve my goal. She was very interested in the languag
