About Lesley

¡Hola! My name is Lesley.

I am a highly motivated professional who excels at building positive relationships with my students and their families. Throughout my career in education I have demonstrated my knowledge, motivation, creativity, patience, and communication skills in a variety of assignments. As a result, students have described me as: committed, knowledgeable, caring, approachable, enthusiastic, and humorous.

I recently earned a certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). Additionally, I have a Master of Arts degree in Teaching and a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish. I hold a Minnesota State Teaching License in K12 Spanish and am Texas state certified to teach: EC12 Spanish, 4-8 General Education, and ESL.

Outside of the experience I gained through pursuing my degrees, I have worked as an educator in other capacities. I student taught in a fifth grade classroom at El Colegio Internacional de Carabobo in Valencia, Venezuela. I was a high school student teacher in a Spanish classroom at a local Senior High.

I taught seventh and eighth grade Spanish in Minnesota and Texas public schools. I was also an Associate Educator assisting Kindergarten teachers, and a Spanish Instructor for Community Education for several years working with adults. I volunteered tutoring forth and fifth grade ESL students with their homework, and volunteered teaching English for a month in Panama at New Brighton English Centre.

I am a world traveler and currently spend a lot of time visiting Venezuela, Panama, Mexico, and Curacao. I always have access to high speed internet and am available to meet with you via video chat on short notice.

I look forward to working with you and am confident I can help you be a successful, lifelong learner.

Sincerely,

Lesley

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 certified ESL teacher, and have worked with both children and adults who are learning English as a Second Language. While earning my BA in Spanish at a local college, I volunteered to tutor adult immigrants at a local church. Additionally, I assisted ESL students in Kindergarten, 1st, 4th and 5th grade with their homework at local public schools.

While earning my TEFL certificate at Hamline University, I taught ESL to international students in professional programs at the U of M.

I am an excellent grammar teacher, and I love working with students to improve their language skills.

Spanish

I have been speaking Spanish for almost 20 years. I began learning Spanish as a middle school student and continued throughout college. I earned my BA in Spanish and studied abroad in Granada, Spain.

I have taught Spanish to elementary, middle and high school students in Minnesota and Texas public schools. I also taught Spanish to adults through Community Education.

I am married to a native Spanish speaker and am raising my children to be bilingual. Spanish is a part of my life, and I love teaching it.
