Brigham Young University, Idaho
I am a graduate of Brigham Young University Idaho and a Texas certified teacher. I am from Plano, Texas. I currently teach in RISD. I have taught levels 1, 2, 3 and 4, and this year I am teaching level 2 and 4 ap.
I studied Spanish practically my whole high school career, but it was not a subject at which I excelled. I struggled immensely with Spanish, I did not understand it. Things changed when I went off to college and took my first Spanish class; I was understanding it and even more surprising to me, I enjoyed it. I then moved to Argentina to study and learn Spanish. I lived there for a year and a half and I loved every second of it. I came back from Argentina and decided to major in Spanish. I love teaching Spanish; it is my passion. I completely comprehend what it is like not to understand or to hate Spanish. I can relate to anyone who is struggling because I was there too! I believe that every student can learn, not always at the same time as everyone else, but I know they can! I have witnessed great improvement in students with individual attention from a tutor. Sometimes things need to be explained differently or three or four times before they are understood. I love working with students one-on-one and I can't wait to help you in any way that I can!

Emily explained the concepts through conversation and practice to help prepare for a quiz. She also explained how to think about the pronouns and gender and why it all works together. Quiz score was best all semester!
My kids related to Emily immediately. My daughter especially was more confident in her 2A/2B Spanish curriculum. We will be utilizing Emily on a go forward basis and I encourage anyone to give Emily a chance as your son/daughter's next Spanish tutor!
I've rated Emily with 5 stars for every lesson she has given our son this year but this is the first time I've decided to comment. Our son was struggling very much with second year Spanish when we decided to get him a tutor. After a lot of time looking at perspective tutors, we decided on Emily. It was the best decision we could have made. Emily is dedicated, patient, dependable and very wise in her approach to getting students to understand Spanish in a way that they can carry back to the classroom. I definitely feel that if not for Emily's tutoring, our son would be in summer school with this class instead of enjoying his summer break. If you need a tutor and if she not all booked up, request Emily.
She is very very good. She is very thorough and teaches well. My son and I really like her teaching methods.
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.
