About Xipelotl

I am an alumni of Marquette University with a BA in Spanish. I have 10 years of professional experience and 3 years teaching Spanish / ESL. I also have a semester of experience teaching after school art lessons. I believe Spanish can be confusing especially when teachers don't spend the time to slow things down to allow the students to absorb the vocabulary and verb structures. The good news is Spanish gets a lot easier when you know what to look for and expect. I have tutored Spanish at Marquette University during my time as an undergrad and I took great satisfaction in helping my former students succeed.

I have had strong writing skills and vocabulary from a young age. I have experience working for a bilingual newspaper and currently work as a freelance marketing manager.

I started learning Spanish at the age of 13 so I don't take for granted the learning process from English that a native speaker might assume or overlook.

I believe tutors are great catalysts for achieving academic goals. Each student has different skill sets and challenges so I recommend 1-2 sessions to see how much of a positive impact the tutoring has. Next, I recommend determining a schedule that will best serve the student if additional sessions favor improved results.
