About Cecilia

Spanish is now the second language most spoken in US and the fourth one around the world. With that in mind, students should considerate learning or improving Spanish not only as an additional way of communication, but as a way of earn more money along with their careers. Then, from the idea of learning a language impact student's lives, I love teaching Spanish.

I earned two MA degrees from New Mexico State University --an MA in Curriculum and Instruction and a MA in Spanish with emphasis in Spanish Linguistics. I have a BA in Communication Sciences with emphasis in Public Relations earned from one of the top universities in Mexico.

I am Spanish native speaker. Although my native dialect is Mexican, I know very well other varieties of Spanish which allows me to teach Spanish as a second language regardless of some academic students' background. I have students whose last professor was Spaniard or Argentinean. As well, I have experience with the US Spanish which allows me to work efficiently with Spanish Heritage Speakers-Learners. A little bit of orientation for this distinction is any student who grew up or is currently living inside a Hispanic community here in US and have some sort of connection with the language (like some students can understand the language but they don't speak it).

Therefore, either you are non-Spanish speaker with nothing or some linguistic knowledge or a student with Hispanic heritage background, I might be the right tutor for you. I am pretty sure I can understand your goals very well and we can work together on them. However, it is very important students tell me from the beginning why they are studying Spanish so we can design a plan. Depending on your goals, that plan may be "light" or "hard". I am not scaring you, I am just trying to clarify that with me, you will achieve what you have in mind and depending on it, to accomplish it would require a lot of work.

Here is the right person! I can help you to achieve that! It doesn't matter if you don't have any previous linguistic experience or actually you speak Spanish and just need to improve it. Please contact me for more details.
