Hello and Hola!

Hello and Hola!

In today's fast-paced global society being multilingual is almost a necessity. As a former executive for several global companies I know firsthand how important it is to excel in English and Spanish.

If you're interested in learning Spanish (or are checking me out for your child) then read on...if you're interested in learning more about English or ESL/ESOL tutoring then skip to the next paragraph. I have undergrad degrees in Spanish and journalism and have lived and worked in Latin America, Europe and Asia. I make learning Spanish fun (even for reluctant students who are only attending tutoring because Mom/Dad is making them!) through real world applications such as music, movies, sports, food, dance, art and social media.

In addition to Spanish, I also have experience working with ESL/ESOL students and professionals and native English speakers. Drawing upon my educational and professional background, I am equipped to help with everything from the traditional English reading/writing/speaking/listening to native accent reduction and preparation for important job/school interviews, work presentations, etc. My time studying and working abroad provided me with unique insight and I look forward to sharing that as we work together to attain your goal.

I'm fluent in English and Spanish and have knowledge of French, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese and Korean.

Thanks and gracias,
Rachel

Best Spanish Tutor We Have Found

Rachel is probably the fifth spanish tutor we have worked with over the past two years. My son started taking spanish in his public school in 6th grade, and was really struggling in that class. At the end of sixth grade, he had barely passed the class and was recommended for summer school in the subject. He worked with a few different tutors over the years to try and help him with grammar concepts and practice speaking out loud, but honestly the money I spent on those tutors was largely wasted. He didn't get much out of it and he found them to be pretty frustrating to work with (and after listening in to a few sessions, I understood why he felt that way -- one tutor basically just told him how to write vocabulary words on index cards and then would quiz him each session, something I was more than capable of doing on my own). Rachel, however, is so much better than those other tutors. She finds ways to make learning spanish engaging for him. After two months of working with Rachel, he's started trying to speak in spanish around the house. And she gave him a quiz last week on what he's learned and he was so proud when he got most of the questions correct. His confidence is improved, he's actually enjoying his tutoring sessions, and my difficult-to-tutor son will say unequivocally that Rachel is the best spanish tutor he's ever had.

Knowledgeable and fresh approach

I am so grateful that this didn't feel like a high school class repeating, or even the college class where the first thing I memorized was all the names of fruit. Rachel zoned in on the fact that daily conversation is something I need and is taking the best approach, while also using my daily personal hobbies to push it along.

Sarah, 6 lessons with Rachel

Knowledgeable and fun!

My high school boys needed Spanish support since their semester was cut short due to COVID. They are both enjoying working with Rachel. She makes it fun and they are learning much quicker now. We highly recommend her!!

Karen, 16 lessons with Rachel

First lesson was great!

My son loved his lesson with Rachel! He is asking if he can see her every day now! She was patient and knew exactly what he needed. She also did a great job communicating with me and explaining things. Thank you!

Mary, 11 lessons with Rachel

Extremely Knowledgeable and Patient Writing Tutor

Me and Rachel spent time proofreading, editing, and creating a conclusion for my final paper for a college course I was taking this semester. Rachel was so kind and patient with me and truly listened to what I had to say and was very flexible with timing. I 100% recommend Rachel to anyone in need of some help with English and Writing in the future!

Reliable, Professional and Effective.

Rachel has tutored my teen son on-line for Spanish II over the past two weeks, increasing his fluency and confidence. She is patient and encouraging. The video portal works well.

Maureen, 8 lessons with Rachel
