About Heather

Hello! I'm Mrs. F. I completed a double major in Romance Languages and Theatre at the University of Georgia. I developed a love of Spanish and The Arts over 20 years ago while attending high school. I began tutoring underclass students my Junior year in high school and have never stopped. I've successfully helped raise the grade point average of over 200 students. I had exemplary teachers that taught me how to effectively teach and encourage each student on an individual level.
Knowing that each student has their personal best way of learning is how I approach tutoring. Together, we will find the best way for you to not only improve your grades/scores but, introduce lessons that cross over into other fields of study. It's always so rewarding to hear my students tell me that they were able to use what we have studied in their other classes.

My goal is to provide a dialed in, immersive, expert experience that gives each student a well rounded knowledge of the language and cultural influences. This goes a long way with your teachers! I'm delighted to offer a myriad of options that you can choose from, beginning with a free consultation via FaceTime/Web or in person to ensure that it's a good tutorial match for all.

Whether you are a frustrated beginner or an accomplished student that would like to become fluent in Latin American, Castilian Spanish, or both; We will have FUN and achieve your personal goals. I set benchmarks for each student to assure growth and a positive outcome. Additional homework will be assigned! My tutorials are not designed for the feint of heart. WARNING!!! Be prepared to have a blast and work hard.

If you are preparing for a standardized test, I do encourage the student to take each test a minimum of 3 times with tutorials before and after each exam unless a perfect score is earned. This is the most intensive training one may receive from me. I scored a 1600 on the S.A.T. That was a perfect score back in 1988. Please make sure (parents) that the student is fully committed to add an additional hour of study 5 times per week, at a minimum.

I was offered a full scholarship in Theatre to Juliard, Brenau Women's College (now Brenau) and the University of Georgia. Preparing monologues for audition, helping you prepare for class work, improvisation or running scenes is my forte'. This is a demanding experience and you will be encouraged to dig deeper than ever with training in breath and body prep, enunciation, and projection. Get the part YOU WANT and then blow your audience away!!!

I currently tutor out of my home. I'm happy to meet you on your campus, public library or local coffee shop.
A 24 hour cancellation notice is required of all students. I do understand that life happens to everyone and offer make-up classes within a 10 day time frame, beginning the day of the missed session. I'm extremely accommodating. For individuals that don't think they can afford the help, I have a sliding scale so that any student that needs the help gets it.
Contact me and watch your grade point average improve and skill set soar!

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.

ESL/ESOL

ESL/ESOL requires a lot of patience. Patience with the materials and oneself. Anyone can learn this language, orally and written. It is my goal to tutor our nation's immigrants to the level that they can tutor another person.
