About Chrissy

I have experience both teaching and tutoring Spanish at Georgetown University. I am currently a Ph.D. student in Spanish Linguistics and recently acquired my M.S. in Spanish Linguistics, both at Georgetown University. I have been trained in foreign language teaching methodology and have taken courses on second language acquisition. I have taught Intro I and Intro II Spanish at Georgetown, but I have tutored students of many different ages and proficiency levels. I have a passion for teaching and just want all of my students to do well. I try to engage them and relate the language to their everyday lives by incorporating contemporary music and movie clips into my lesson plans. All lesson plans are of my own creation - I am required to teach certain topics on certain days but I prepare all communicative activities myself. My teaching methodology focuses more on communication and less on grammar, but I can also explain grammar concepts very well when necessary.

I may be a native English speaker but my level of Spanish is native-like (certified by the Instituto Cervantes of Spain) and I can explain grammar concepts that are automatic and difficult to explain for most native speakers of the language. I also can easily get a sense of how a student is processing the language, and tweak my lesson plans accordingly. In addition, I'd like to think I am a very encouraging teacher.
