About Evelyn

I am a native Spanish Teacher with a Masters Degree in Translation from English-to-Spanish and Spanish-to-English from the University of Puerto Rico. When I first came to Texas, 25 years ago, I taught Spanish to high school students at St. Pius X catholic school in Houston. I became a teacher with HISD when I obtained my Teacher Certificate for Elementary Education. I have been a Teacher until my retirement two years ago. when tutoring, I evaluate my students to decide at what level they are in the acquisition of the language and based on that and on the curriculum of their school I will decide which lessons are appropriate. Some schools expect more grammar than conversational language or vice versa and I will emphasize either of the two. In general, my students will improve quickly if they are interested in learning. I have been tutoring high school students for three years now and all my students have made considerable improvement in their grades. I have taught Spanish with the Bilingual Institute in Houston and with Crossing Borders also in Houston. I have a very natural enjoyment for teaching my language as well as a lot of caring for my students. I believe the latter two are the main reasons for my students' success.

Thank you Naila. It is a real pleasure to work with your daughter and I feel fulfilled when she gets good grades. But there's nothing i enjoy more than teaching my own language to young students. It is especially gratifying to help someone as dedicated as her.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 am a professional translator both in English and Spanish. I have been a bilingual teacher for 25 years. For those reasons I know the English language grammar very well and can teah ESL confidently.

Spanish

Spanish is my home language and I love teaching it. I have a thorough knowledge of both the Spanish and English grammar since as a professional translator I am also a linguist. My spoken language is correct and fluent as a true native speaker. My students and parents have always felt very satisfied with my knowledge and teaching style. I am a very caring teacher and my students are always first with me. Hopefully, parents and I together will make a wonderful team to help their child improve his/her grades and confidence.
