Before teaching Spanish at the high school level, I lived in Costa Rica for two years and traveled in South America. My enjoyment of teaching facilitated my decision to complete my Master's with course work in Spanish from UT Austin and summer courses in Spain and Mexico offered by California State at Sacramento.

I taught Spanish at St. Andrews Middle School for eight years and also have taught other age groups with the Lifetime Learning Institute in Austin. Throughout my teaching career, I have tutored individual students, especially those in high school and early college courses who wanted to increase their understanding of the language and improve their grades.

My love for the Spanish language, my time spent in Spain and Latin America and my experience in teaching enable me to share my expertise with my students and help them improve their communication skills and enjoyment of learning another language.

I work with each student to diagnose his or her learning style as well as strengths and weaknesses. I integrate tips for memorization and study skills and how to improve pronunciation. Most importantly, I try to inject the fun and challenge of broadening one's world view by learning another language.

I try to be flexible with my time. While I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I offer makeup classes. I have a quiet and comfortable study space in my home where I teach private lessons and group classes. However, I am happy to travel to another location if that is more convenient for the student.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your Spanish studies!
