About Nan

I have a BA from Western College for Women. But from living and teaching ESL for 38 years in Argentina, three of those years in Mexico, to interpreting in many IEPs in the Hillsboro schools during the past 10 years, I have developed a love and a passion for how students acquire skill and confidence in becoming bilingual. Being bilingual is always a choice, and developing self-confidence in reading, vocabulary, and language skills, is what I see the greatest need for in so many students. I love to see people light up when they speak because they feel good about what they know and how they say it.

English is my first language, and I taught ESL for over 25 years in Argentina. Spanish is my second language. Living immersed in it in Argentina, and Mexico, gave me the possibility of learning and loving it every day. I discovered it was tough to give myself permission to become bilingual, and bi-cultural; but the process is well worth it and uniquely enriching. Being able to speak another language is a bridge to communication, and becoming more and more important in all walks of life.

Please contact me if you want to schedule hourly tutoring sessions for remedial reading in either or both languages for your student, or yourself, or for help with language skills, speaking, fluency, or just plain doing homework. I prefer to work from my home or meet in a public place, and am available during the day from 9-5, and Saturday mornings.

Approved subjects

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.

Spanish

Qualified Spanish Interpreter in the Beaveron/Hillsboro area for 10 years. Extensive medical interpreting, and legal as well. Spanish is my second language which I acquired living most of my adult life in my husband's Argentina where we raised our children.
