About Kristen

I am an experienced, certified K12 Spanish teacher and interpreter. I also have experience as an adult instructor of private, one-on-one Spanish for Specific Careers in fields ranging from law enforcement to construction. Additionally, I am an experienced private tutor of middle and high school students. I have also taught adult ESOL through the Chesterfield Technical Center as well. I am an enthusiastic, dynamic, adept teacher who is results-driven and strives to equip my students with the skills necessary for real-life language application.

In addition to being a language instructor, I am also a language enthusiast and lifelong language learner. In addition to English and Spanish, I also speak Haitian Creole, and I have taught myself Portuguese as well. I have a Master's in Latin American Studies with a focus on Spanish linguistics and Anthropology from the University of Miami, as well as a BA in Spanish Linguistics from the University of Virginia. I am a specialist in Spanish sociolinguistics and dialectology with expertise in the area of languages and dialects in contact. My passion is to learn languages and help others to do the same. I believe that learning languages open the door to new perspectives and life experiences in ways that transform us unlike anything else. This is what drives my passion to teach languages--the desire to share the same marvelous, mind-opening experience with others.

I look forward to hearing from you so that we can begin your language journey together!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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.
