I have a bachelor's degree in Spanish grammar and literature and have spent the past ten years living in and around Latin America. The picture of me was taken at a street fair in Mexico a couple of years ago, while I was visiting for a friend's wedding. I've also lived in Honduras and Spain, good times!
My teaching style is personalized and creative. I believe that learning a language is best done through practice, trial and error. Some of the best lessons I've had were from using the wrong word at an importune time and learning to laugh at my mistakes while learning the actual word that I wanted to use. With younger students, I've had great success with writing songs about daily events and singing them as we do that particular activity. Older students have responded really well to watching bits of a telenovela (Hispanic soap opera) and re-writing the ending and acting it out. Road trips to local restaurants are also great learning opportunities. Spanish opens the doors to a whole new universe of experiences and adventures and I love introducing new people to the opportunities that a new language presents!
I look at language as a puzzle, and being able to speak it is as simple as learning which pieces fit together. I'm also passionate about English writing and grammar. Shoot me a line and let's start putting together the pieces! Saludos!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
