About Maggie


Bio

I have recently relocated to Norfolk from Raleigh, North Carolina. I really love being close to the beach! I have many years of experience teaching both Spanish and French and worked for more than 15 years as a certified interpreter/translator in both state and federal courts. I still routinely work as an interpreter/translator in legal, medical, and corporate environments and provide tutoring from beginning to to advanced levels in Spanish language, Literatures, and Cultures.

I have recently relocated to Norfolk from Raleigh, North Carolina. I really love being close to the beach! I have many years of experience teaching both Spanish and French and worked for more than 15 years as a certified interpreter/translator in both state and federal courts. I still routinely work as an interpreter/translator in legal, medical, and corporate environments and provide tutoring from beginning to to advanced levels in Spanish language, Literatures, and Cultures.

I have two daughters, one in college and one in high school. My youngest is currently taking Spanish II and we spend time working on her grammar and spelling together. I like to come up with fun and creative ideas for her to practice her listening and speaking skills as well. I would love the opportunity to help you as well!

I began learning a foreign language in high school and remember just how challenging it was to start with the alphabet and work my way up! It can be very intimidating, especially when you start to realize just how vast language is! I have taught ESL both here and abroad and feel like understanding culture is paramount to teaching a language. People make language. I feel that a good ESL teacher must always bear in mind that each student is informed by his/her culture and learn as much as possible about the underlying perceptions, practices, and beliefs of each.

I truly feel that I am an outstanding language tutor because I genuinely love languages! I also remember how frustrated I used to feel when I began to learn Spanish in high school. I never dreamed that I would one day earn a Master’s Degree in it! My greatest strengths are recognizing different learning styles, identifying where the conceptual difficulties lie, and formulating approaches that will help the student learn and progress without adding to the stress and anxiety that often accompany the struggles experienced by the students.

I am very excited to meet new students from different backgrounds and cultures and would love the opportunity to help you communicate and understand mine. Please contact me so that we can get started!
