About Grecia

Teaching has become my passion in life. As a dance instructor and counselor, I have found that my journey to success continues as I progress to become an effective tutor in Spanish, Psychology, vocabulary, and dancing.

Nevertheless, I bring authenticity to my background in Spanish. Having lived and raised in the Beautiful country of Belize, I have had the opportunity to speak three languages (Creole, Spanish, and English). My future endeavors include finishing my graduate degree in clinical mental health counseling and pursing and additional certification in dancing. Along with my other accomplishments, I have received my bachelor's degree in Spanish and Psychology. I volunteered at a school as a Spanish teacher for 2 years. I am also a DVIDA certified teacher in Ballroom dancing. I have been dancing for 10 years. One of my perquisites for success is learning a new word and its definition on a daily basis; that is one reason I want to teach vocabulary. I believe that the mind can be a wasteful thing if not put to good use.

Furthermore, I hope to enrich the minds of those willing to learn and dedicate themselves to learning. With that said, my objective is to become a great tutor, and with your feedback, I will be able to do so. To my future students, I hope to provide my best knowledge. I prepare myself to be patient and creative in my methods. I am passionate about teacher the subjects listed. I hope to make the tutoring sessions fun and exciting. I am comfortable working on a one-on-one session and meeting in an area that is comfortable for the both of us. Most of all I am easy going and flexible. It would be my pleasure to be your tutor in any of the fields listed.
