Bio

I have been speaking Spanish for the past 19 years. I have even lived in a number of Latin American nations including Mexico, Guatemala, and Colombia. Given my fluency in both American English and American Spanish, I am ideally suited to teach American students Spanish by helping them recognize the similarities and differences between the two languages in terms of grammar, writing, and conversation.

I have been speaking Spanish for the past 19 years. I have even lived in a number of Latin American nations including Mexico, Guatemala, and Colombia. Given my fluency in both American English and American Spanish, I am ideally suited to teach American students Spanish by helping them recognize the similarities and differences between the two languages in terms of grammar, writing, and conversation. I prefer to teach students by relating the material to their own unique interests as well as teaching them aspects of the Spanish language that they are interested in learning. In this way students are much more likely to retain the material because they will have contextualized it for themselves.

My formal tutoring experience falls over the course of several years. I started tutoring for the Spanish department of my undergraduate institution. I began my freshman year having passed out of needing any introductory language classes and tutored novice and intermediate level Spanish students while taking more advanced Spanish Literature courses. After finishing my undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Philosophy I then spent a year as an AmeriCorps volunteer working at a tutoring center in an under performing high school in Northern California. I primarily worked with 9th and 10th grade ESL students that had just relocated to the area from Mexico and Central America. I helped these students improve their English as well better understanding their other subjects that were taught in English.
