Bio

I absolutely love teaching and tutoring all levels of Spanish, and my students' success is of the utmost importance to me. My goal is to help students gain confidence and comfort with the language, regardless of level. I have taught and tutored Spanish at both the university and high school levels for 20+ years, including language, culture and literature.

I absolutely love teaching and tutoring all levels of Spanish, and my students' success is of the utmost importance to me. My goal is to help students gain confidence and comfort with the language, regardless of level. I have taught and tutored Spanish at both the university and high school levels for 20+ years, including language, culture and literature.
I have been scoring the AP Spanish Language Exam for the last 12+ summers, and have invaluable strategies to help AP students to improve their performance and score.

I started learning Spanish when I was 19 years old, and reached a superior level of proficiency. Unlike a native speaker, I know exactly what the challenges can be for learning all aspects of the language. I have developed a variety of approaches to help my students to better understand specific grammatical concepts, as well as gain a holistic comprehension and appreciation of the Spanish language and culture(s).

I work with students from HS Spanish 1 through AP Language / AP literature and culture, as well as university 101 through advance composition, literature and culture. I have lived and worked in Spain, Mexico and Argentina, and earned a PhD in Spanish from Vanderbilt University.

I completed an intensive 140 hour TEFL Certification at VCU (2017). I have also taught Business English in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

A passion for experiencing and teaching Spanish language and cultures, combined with 20+ years of teaching and tutoring experience at the Upper School and University levels. I earned a B.A., M.A., and PhD in Spanish, and have lived and worked in Spain, Mexico and Argentina.
