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.

She dramatically helped improve the grade of my child. She provides support, encouragement and maintains a low pressure learning environment. Last but not the least she is also very efficient and effective for the time she spends with the student.
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.
It was the first lesson and my daughter is so excited . She says her teacher is the best teacher
My daughter came home very satisfied and happy with Evelyn and all of her help. She was very knowledgeable of the material and able to help my daughter tremendously. So glad I was able to find her!!
Thank you Luanne. I really enjoyed tutoring your daughter. She is so sweet and eager to learn.
Evelyn was very patient with our somewhat reluctant daughter. She has lost some confidence and Evelyn did her best to instill that in her. Very nice lady and great background.
Evelyn R. is a fantastic Spanish tutor. My 13 year old son didn't want a tutor and has no real interest in learning Spanish. However, when Evelyn is there, they converse in Spanish and there is a lot of laughter and smiling so he participates. Can't say enough good things about Evelyn.
Thank you Diane, I really enjoy tutoring my language and I do enjoy your son.
I could not be more pleased with Evelyn and her ability to work with my 14 year old grandson. He has never worked with a tutor before and was very unsure that this could really help him before he started working with this caring professional teacher. Evelyn is making a real differece and I feel that he is understanding more about the effort he has to put into learning than just passing Spanish.
Thank you Linda. As I told you, I love what I do. It has been my pleasure to work with your family.
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.
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.
