About Joan

I have taught Spanish for more than 30 years. I have taught Spanish I to 7th graders, up through College Spanish. There is no Spanish that is foreign to me. I have a Master of Arts in Spanish, and am fully bilingual. Italian and French are strong points also, but Spanish for me is my most beloved language,

I also taught Biology in High School, including DNA and RNA replication and Genetics. As a matter of fact, 2 hospitals in the San Antonio area hired me to teach a group of medical personnel to learn Spanish so that they might be more able to help their incoming clientele.

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.

Biology

Biology was my minor in College, and it is a favorite of mine. I taught this subject to High School students.

ESL/ESOL

Biology can be a subject with a diverse vocabulary, as well as chemical leanings. besides these 2 axillary subjects, Biology includes the study of all plants and all animals and includes the way they live and reproduce. I am aware and able to help students with each area of Biology, and have had experience teaching Biology for 17 years.

Spanish

I have an M.A. in Spanish and for over 30 years I have taught Spanish on all levels. I have taught in Texas High Schools, and can teach you to speak, read and write Spanish. I also have a degree in Biology and have taught in 2 local hospitals and have taught RNs and other hospital personnel to be able to speak with patients in Spanish.

TOEFL

The TOEFL Test is a test of reading, writing, speaking and listening. Students from many countries are able, when passing this test, to enter universities in the US, UK, Australia and New Zealand.
I can help you with the grammar and with reading, speaking and with other parts of the TOEFL Test. I am at your service.

Writing

I have written many papers in Spanish and English, and I am aware of the many formats used in writing.
