About Rita

I love to help people have success in learning Spanish. I have traveled extensively and know the joy of being able to communicate with others from different cultures. Learning a language is not always easy, and I can help both with learning grammar and pronunciation. I taught Spanish in the public school system, grades kindergarten through 12, for 22 years and know what students need to know to succeed.

Likewise, I like to help people learn English. I have worked with many to improve their pronunciation and grammar, while also teaching them basic survival phrases to use in public places. It is a plus to be able to learn about other countries while teaching others about how things are in the U.S.


I have taken course work in teaching ESL students. I have worked with the Mid-state literacy council as a volunteer ESL teacher. I am currently involved in an online help group, answering questions, making corrections to written materials and offering online language exchange.

I am a retired Spanish teacher. I taught for 22 years, and have taught all levels (Spanish I, II, III and IV) and all grades including Kindergarten.

I can help you with your Spanish or your ESL. I am a very patient teacher and have many resources to use to help you, depending on how you learn best, your age or just your need to learn a language. I prefer on-line, Skype lessons as it is easy to set lesson times and it eliminates the need for travel.
