About Franchesca

My name is Franchesca and I grew up speaking Spanish every day due to my mother’s background from Mexico. Today, I am very grateful that I was exposed to Mexico through visits to my grandma every summer. In college, I had a rich academic exposure to Spanish on campus and while studying a semester in Madrid, Spain. In Spain, I was able to enhance my fluency and gain a new appreciation for the diverse cultures of the Spanish language. With my deep love of the language and fresh perspective, I hope to help students learn the language while making it an enjoyable experience.

I have experience with both teaching in the classroom and tutoring. Currently, I am a 7th and 8th grade Spanish teacher in New York City and speak only in the target language to my students. Prior to being a Spanish teacher in New York City I was a Spanish tutor in Westchester County, where I worked one-on-one with Middle School and High School students after school to help them improve in Spanish. The students I tutored improved their skills in reading, writing, listening, and speaking Spanish. All of my students’ grades improved appreciably as a result of my teaching, with at least a letter grade improvement for each student.
