About Sandra

I am a retired accountant who is a native Spanish speaker fluent in speaking, reading and writing both in English, Spanish and has over 15+ years experience utilizing QuickBooks accounting. I love teaching English and Spanish to kids and adults! I have over 10+ years experience teaching individually, one-on-one and in group settings of 15+ students.

I have taught and tutored at many levels, from elementary school to college. Everyone is different; everyone learns differently. My goal is to assess each students' needs, identify what they find difficult and what comes easily, and practice sustainable learning methods or time-management strategies so that they can continue to make progress on their own. My greatest accomplishment is my students success. All my students have been very successful from my tutoring program. It is impressive how well and fast students learn when they have a very motivated and dynamic instructor.

I have studied English and Spanish languages; grammar, reading and writing throughout high school and college. My college graduating GPA is 3.57. I have provided tutoring and mentoring to students while in college who have struggled with learning the English and Spanish languages; grammar, reading and writing. I am a retired accountant who has taught QuickBooks to many past clients for the last 15+ years.

I am a professional Legal/Medical Spanish Interpreter and Translator for various courts and medical facilities throughout Virginia as well as an Educator and Facilitator, my classes are conducted both in English and Spanish.

I am certified as an Educator/Facilitator, as well as, certified as a Medical Interpreter from Area Health Education Center (AHEC) in Virginia.

I am very flexible with location, whether from your home, public library, coffee house or online via WyzAnt. I cater to students comfort levels and needs. I have a flexible schedule, providing I am not booked at a particular time slot. I am free in the mornings, afternoons and early evenings; Monday through Sunday.

Great tutor

We started with the basics by learning the Spanish alphabet which helped me with the pronunciation of Spanish words. She was very lively and had great interaction with my daughter!
