Hi, I’m Eugenia!

I was born and raised in Costa Rica for the first 16 years of my life and educated in the United States. I finished high school in Long Island and graduated with a Bachelor of Science from Cornell University. While in Cornell I realized that a lot of my friends and people I met were interested in knowing Spanish but after taking it for five years in high school they remembered little of it. Having heard this I volunteered helping my friend with her Spanish class. I knew I had a shot in helping her being that I am a native speaker and I went through learning a language myself. I could identify with her struggles and needs. In addition I could give her the repetition of concept and the feedback she was not getting from a regular class. The approach I take is to be very personable rather than strictly following cookie cutter book examples that may not be easy to relate and don't allow for a pause to internalize the message with real life examples and a conversation. With my full attention in her needs, opportunities for improvements and strengths in the language, she went from a B to an A in the class. This is how I became a Spanish tutor.

I now have two years of experience tutoring and the feedback and reward has been amazing. I have tutored three students personally. The structure and pace of the sessions has been different for all three since they all had different needs and methods of learning. None the less, I always dedicate at least 20 percent of each lesson to free learning. This means 20 percent of time to speak, read, ask questions, clarify something that they heard, read, saw, or to write freely. I always say that for the first lessons, that if you are not making mistakes you are not learning, and for the later lessons, if my student doesn’t remember previous lessons, then I’m not doing my job. So I definitely dedicate extra time to my student if they are falling behind. This philosophy is why my students stayed with me for a long time and what allowed me to give my students the greatest benefit.

I love helping my students learn Spanish. In my eyes it is all about the student, so any preferences, suggestions, feedback that they or the parents have is greatly welcomed. I am easy to reach and always provide fast responses. Feel free to reach me with any questions or to schedule a lesson!

Excellent tutor highly recommend

Eugenia is a great professional tutor who is always respectful of our home. She has given my son more knowledge and confidence with his 9th grade Spanish. His grades have improved tremendously. We highly recommend her.
