About Sarah

My love for tutoring Spanish stems from many different facets of my life. I had the privilege of living overseas in a Spanish-speaking country where I was immersed in the Spanish language. To be honest, I fell in love with everything-- not just the language, but the people and culture as well! Since then, I obtained a bachelor's degree in Spanish. I have also tutored Spanish for 4 years now and have been working as a Spanish medical interpreter for 3+ years. Furthermore, I recently obtained my national certification in medical interpreting last year.

My experiences have taught me that acquiring mastery of the Spanish language requires consistent effort, perseverance, and a desire to continue learning. For this reason, with all of the students that I have taught and will instruct in the future, my goal is to help the student naturally and smoothly transition into better Spanish knowledge and understanding. This is accomplished through one-on-one conversations in Spanish and, in the case of medical Spanish, physician-patient role play in addition to new vocabulary and grammar. Thus far, I have had the great pleasure of witnessing (and being inspired by) the growth of many a student as they have continued on in their respective disciplines.

I try to be flexible with time and so make-up classes can be arranged should the student need to cancel. That being said, I still do maintain a 24-hour cancellation policy.

I look forward to serving you and helping you not only achieve success but enjoy your studies!

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.

Spanish

I initially learned Spanish while living in Honduras. Since then, I have obtained a bachelor's degree in it and have over 4 years of experience tutoring it. I am also a national board- certified Spanish medical interpreter and have been interpreting in hospitals (i.e. Vanderbilt) and clinics for 3+ years now.

Great tutor

I needed help with writing my essay and brainstorming. She provided me with different things to talk about and also will be reviewing my final essay for grammar, etc. Sarah is the perfect tutor for English, and learning how to write an organized paper.
