About Carrie

I am a recent graduate from Portland State University. I chose to pursue Spanish after traveling to spanish speaking regions such as Mexico and Spain. I instantly fell in love with the culture as well as the challenge of learning a second language.

I have volunteered with elementary students at an elementary school in their bilingual immersion program as well as taught adults in the Portland Metro area. My degree focused on syntax, grammar, literature and the culture of Latin America and Spain. I have a deep understanding of the history of Spanish and hope to assist anyone who wants to learn.

My philosophy for teaching is derivative of my own experience of learning a second language. Being bilingual requires dedication and patience, both from the student and the instructor. I develop my lessons based on the individual needs of each student and create an outline for success where the student can see and feel their progress.

I will encourage each student (child or adult) to become aware of their own learning process by cultivating control and building confidence. This includes documenting what they already know about the foreign language, what they want to learn and by the end of our sessions what they have learned. These effective methods of teaching, enable students to enhance their language arts skills and eventually reach content literacy. The suggested format is a key for solidifying literacy and transforming bilingual students learning experiences into life long achievements.

Please feel free to email me with any questions!
