I have extensive experience in all levels of Spanish, with eight years in two private High Schools, teaching Spanish 1-4, AP and Dual Credit. As an Adjunct Professor at Texas Wesleyan University, I taught three levels of Spanish. My academic credentials include a Master of Arts degree in National Security Affairs / Latin America Studies from the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School and graduation with honors in Spanish at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, CA. In order to further my Spanish proficiency, I attended the Don Quixote Institute of Languages Superintensivo Program in Guanajuato, Mexico.

My strong passion for teaching Spanish to all age groups has resulted in my integrating multiple complementary techniques to reach the student. Through incorporating a wide variety of materials to aid in the learning process, I make learning a foreign language less intimidating. I want my students to have both a solid foundation and the comfort to enjoy Spanish.

Spanish

My professional credentials in the Spanish language span three decades. As an Air Force officer in the 1980s, I was a specialist in Latin American intelligence, performing English-to-Spanish and Spanish-to-English translation services. I received a Master's degree in Latin America Studies from the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, and I graduated with honors from the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, CA. Later I attended the Don Quixote Institute of Languages, Guanajuato, Mexico, attaining "advanced C1" level in their superintensivo course. During the past decade, I have been teaching all levels of Spanish in several private high schools and at a university. My teaching style includes a mix of technical grammar comprehension and immersion drills. I integrate a variety of techniques (visual aids, sound aids, animation, hands-on, verbal and nonverbal activities) to ensure complete understanding of the specific concepts.

Excellent Spanish Teacher who achieves results

My daughter has been taking weekly lessons with Cynthia over several months and showing steady progress in verbal communication and grammar usage. Cynthia's methodical and systematic approach works! She has helped my daughter build confidence in Spanish through practice and well thought out instructions. Cynthia develops her lesson plans and offers guidance to students, which is a great advantage of her teaching style. Look forward to many more lessons with Cynthia! Thank you!

Great teacher!

Cynthia was a great tutor! I learned a lot from her and would definitely recommend her to any beginner trying to learn Spanish, or just someone who needs help.

First Session was successful!!

I have only known Cynthia for one session. She was knowledgeable on the subject. She was able to teach me a bit and most importantly we got some work done. I plan to continue working with Ms Cynthia for the month. I look forward to providing a final review regarding the total value of her assistance. We have a bit more to go and time will tell, but so far I do not see a reason to find another tutor this time.

Excellent Spanish Tutor

Cynthia has been my son's 8th grade Spanish tutor for almost 6 months. She is an excellent tutor. She is friendly and patient. She answers all of his questions. She is enthusiastic about Spanish. She encourages and compliments my son on his work. He enjoys working with her. He feels much more confident in his Spanish class after he has worked with her. She goes over his assignments and projects, making sure that all is correct. She is always well prepared and has additional review questions for him. I would highly recommend Cynthia. We are so happy to have found her.

Wonderful Help

Cynthia is helping my 11-year old with her middle school Spanish class. I don't know what we'd do without her support. It's been invaluable. Cynthia is very good at interacting with my pre-teen and my daughter enjoys working with her.
