Bio

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...

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

Awesome tutor!

Rachel is an incredible Spanish tutor! She is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and thorough. Learning a foreign language as an adult is difficult, but Rachel always finds innovative, effective ways to help me learn. In only a few lessons with Rachel, I could already notice improvement in my Spanish! Gracias a Rachel, estoy aprendiendo más y más cada semana.
