I am an effective and experienced secondary Spanish and ESL teacher taking time from a full-time teaching career to raise my family. Currently, I am teaching Spanish to a group of preschool students in my community but I’m certified to teach middle school and high school Spanish and ESOL and have taught Spanish levels I - IV, including Spanish for Native Speakers and ESL grades K-12.

In addition to the traditional classroom, I have worked in an alternative education setting and could be a great motivational coach for the homeschooler. Providing support to students in their core content areas was important to me as an ESL teacher and I am comfortable guiding students through most coursework that they may struggle with.

I have expertise in assessing language needs and assure individualized instruction since 1992. I am native English speaker that has endured the pitfalls of learning Spanish as a Second Language, which allows me to help the student avoid these experiences. Giving students the tools and positive support to improve their skills and achieve beyond their expectations is my goal.

Additional practical language and cultural experience includes but is not limited to:

In January 2014, some generous sponsors chose to send me to Nicaragua on a mission trip with AMOS Health & Hope. Our group installed approximately 40 water filtration devices in a rural community. Prior study abroad includes intensive one year language study at la Universidad de las Américas in Puebla, Mexico as well as time in Madrid, Spain.

Great for my 5 year old

We have been working with Heather for 2 weeks now. She has been very professional and easy to work with. She is great with my 5 year old son. They have been working mostly on handwriting and some reading. My son enjoys working with her and we will continue.

Whitney, 4 lessons with Heather

Great first lesson

Heather jumped right in, focusing on what our daughter needed for an upcoming Spanish exam. Our shy 14-year old seemed to like her and appreciated the focus on her immediate study needs.

Petra, 11 lessons with Heather

A great help!

My son was having some problems in Spanish so we decided we needed to look for some additional help. Heather was fantastic! My son really liked her and after one meeting feels like he is getting some of the things he wasn't understanding. We will definitely be using Heather again.

Mark, 5 lessons with Heather

Extremely Helpful , very professional

Our experience with Heather was absolutely awesome. We were new to the process, she was warm & inviting. Prior to our first tutor session, She took her own personal time to ask for example material in advance in which our daughter was struggling with. She was completely up to speed on the first session of tutoring. My wife and I were thoroughly impressed. Our daughter felt as though just one session was so helpful. Highly endorsed!
