About Elizabeth


Bio

I have a lifelong love of the Spanish language which I desire to share with students. Raised with early exposure to Spanish through my mother, who was also my high school Spanish teacher in a private, college preparatory school, I went on to major in Spanish in college and graduated with a 3.6/4.0 GPA. During my junior year abroad in Spain, I acquired near-native fluency which has stayed with me throughout my adult life. I am often mistaken for a native speaker.

I have a lifelong love of the Spanish language which I desire to share with students. Raised with early exposure to Spanish through my mother, who was also my high school Spanish teacher in a private, college preparatory school, I went on to major in Spanish in college and graduated with a 3.6/4.0 GPA. During my junior year abroad in Spain, I acquired near-native fluency which has stayed with me throughout my adult life. I am often mistaken for a native speaker.

I have extensive teaching experience: private tutor, all ages and levels, both in person and on line; homeschool class teacher (middle and high school aged); adult community school (enrichment classes); and community college courses. I have a thorough understanding of Spanish grammar and am committed to helping students "crack the code" of a foreign language. My friendly, positive approach encourages students to believe that they can succeed; I equip them with the tools to improve their skills, confidence and grades through the use of materials which supplement the school textbooks and curricula.

It is also a joy to teach adult students who are motivated to learn Spanish, whether for professional use, especially medical Spanish; or personal use, such as mission work, communicating with loved ones, etc. I have taught several medical professionals, have some experience as an medical interpreter and worked as an assistant to Latino therapists doing in-home family counseling.

I also have bachelor's and master's degrees in music and have taught people of all ages and levels of musical ability. Music history is always a component of my private teaching and choral rehearsals, and I have taught music history survey courses at a community college. I have experience with a variety of learning styles, both as a Spanish teacher and as a teacher of music - voice, piano and guitar.

Spanish

Spanish

Having tutored all levels of Spanish for many years, I am very familiar with the points of grammar that give students the most trouble. I help students to build their confidence in learning the language by tapping into their learning styles and by my personable and encouraging approach. It is also a joy to share my love of the language with other adults for their personal or professional needs. My bachelor's degree in Spanish Language and Literature included a year abroad in Madrid, Spain, where I developed near-native fluency that I have maintained throughout my life.

Improved grades!!!

We want to thank Elizabeth for helping Perri succeed in Spanish. Her overall grade currently in June is an 82, up from a 69 overall average at the beginning of April, 2019. We are very proud of the hard work that went into raising her grade. The online tutoring with Elizabeth was convenient and flexible, so easy! Our daughter really enjoyed the on line sessions, it was easy for to keep track of her lessons and her work. We highly recommend her and the online tutoring!!!

Excellent Spanish Tutor

Just the first lesson and my son feel confident about the concepts that he learns from her! We strongly recommended Mrs. Elizabeth N. as a Spanish tutor. We are blessed!

It has been a fascinating experience to work with Diego, who, as a native speaker of Spanish, speaks the language extremely well! When he entered high school, he was placed in the equivalent of Spanish 3. However, since he has been educated in the USA, he had never formally studied Spanish grammar or writing mechanics, so he was doing poorly in class. I told Diego, who is a musician, that he is like a great jazz artist who can play and improvise anything but doesn't read a note of music. It's an entirely different way of approaching the language. I am happy to know that his grades have vastly improved, so much so that he has been recommended for AP Spanish next year!

Great Spanish session with Elizabeth

I had a Great Spanish session with Elizabeth. She was easy to work with and very helpful for my upcoming test! I highly recommend her as an excellent tutor. We went over the lesson and she clarified my questions in preparation for my test.

Tutor responded:

I am so glad that the session was helpful!

Patient Tutor

What she taught me really helped me understand it more. I would recommend her to other people like me, having no experience with Spanish. This is my first time having an online tutor and I would no doubt choose online over anything else.

Tutor responded:

Even after just a couple of sessions, it is so wonderful to see this student's confidence begin to soar!

Terrific Tutor

Elizabeth knows her area, and provided helpful pointers and guidance. She explained things in a straightforward way, making clear what the teacher failed to fully explain. We'll definitely call on her again for this demanding college Spanish course!

Having taught college classes, I know how intensive they can be. I am glad to be here to help!

Great teacher, very accommodating... And online tutoring in general is just very efficient!

We have been working with Elizabeth the last two months for my 12 year old. She has been very accommodating. She was able connect very well with him and tailor her content and delivery to his needs. My son enjoyed the time and wants to continue working with her. Also getting tutoring online is just very efficient and effective. The online tool works like a charm!

Tutor responded:

This student had the wonderful opportunity to study Spanish in Barcelona for a few weeks last summer. I am so happy that he continues to want to learn and be challenged beyond what he is learning in Spanish class at school.

New Student/Great Experience

Very patient and extremely knowledgeable about the Spanish language. I like that we’re starting with the basics and going in a very logical order to increase my understanding!

Keith, 2 lessons with Elizabeth
Tutor responded:

I am especially happy that this adult student decided to try online instruction with me, although she wasn't sure she wanted to go that route. What a pleasure to teach students like this who are so ready and eager to learn!

Great tutor, highly recommended!

My son and I are so glad to have found Elizabeth! She is patient and easy to understand. She comes equipped with useful mnemonic devices and plenty of tips for oral exams and presentations. Additionally, she provides links to helpful websites and videos in the class summary after each lesson. We would highly recommend Elizabeth! We also recommend the online lesson. It is both convenient and capable. One thing that is very useful is the recording of class notes and audio. My son always reviews Elizabeth’s notes before his exams and presentations, and he says it helps a lot!

Karen, 28 lessons with Elizabeth
Tutor responded:

One of the great things about online tutoring is that we get to work with students all over the country, coast to coast. I was so happy to learn that this student recently got an excellent grade on an oral presentation! He has really come a long way in his confidence.

Highly Recommended

Elizabeth was very patient and encouraging. I am sure that there are many tutors that of course have command of the Spanish language, but due to Elizabeth's extensive experience in tutoring, her lessons have a process in place that gave me the best chance to learn and build confidence. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to learn Spanish.
