About Carmen

My passion is teaching! I am a certified teacher, and I enjoy working with students from all types of background and cultures. I believe every student has a special gift, whether it is academic, artistic, logical, etc. and I bring out that talent through my personalized lessons. It does not matter how old you are or what language level you are at, we can have a great time learning a new language together. The subjects I am offering are Spanish, English as a Second Language, and Romanian. Here is a little bit about my background in each:

Spanish: I fell in love with the Spanish language and culture in my teenage years and continued learning it throughout high school, college, and graduate school. During college, I studied abroad in Spain and Ecuador. I am now working toward a Master's degree in teaching foreign languages at Michigan State University. I have been offering private tutoring in Spanish for 5 years and have taught in the classroom for 3 years.

English as a Second Language: Being an immigrant myself, I love to work with immigrants from different backgrounds who are trying to get better accustomed to the language and culture of the United States. I have worked with an immigration organization in Alabama teaching English to classes of about 10 students, and I have tutored students individually.

Romanian: I was born in Romania, and my extended family still lives there. I travel there once every year to see them. I would love to share my first language and culture with you!

Contact me, and we can create a curriculum specifically for you language needs.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

I have created lesson plans and taught English to immigrants in the United States, and to students in China. I have experience in medium-sized classes and one-on-one settings.

Romanian

I was born in Romania and go back every year to see my extended family. I would love to share my native language and culture with you!

Spanish

I have a BA in Spanish Education from Samford University, and am now working on my Master's in teaching foreign languages at Michigan State University. I also completed graduate work in Spanish literature at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I have six years of experience creating classroom lesson plans and teaching Spanish classes in the AL and NC public school system as well as working as a Spanish 105 instructor at UNC Chapel Hill.
