As a former high school Spanish teacher, I am well versed in the mechanics of Spanish grammar, vocabulary, and composition. These are an important part of learning the language -- but to me, the most essential ingredient in learning Spanish is to make it come alive! Conjugating endless lists of verbs is boring, but being able to communicate with people in a second language is enormously satisfying and enjoyable. I will help you learn the basics and then assist you in developing your fluency so that you can actually carry on a conversation with native Spanish speakers. I have been tutoring for more than ten years and I genuinely love my work. Let me help you open the door to Spanish fluency!

Karen is really the best. She is patient and continues to build confidence in my son. My boy was unfortunately behind at his school (not known to us because he had all "B's" in the class. ..spanish 1) then when we decided to home school him and found out how behind he really was we enlisted Karen to help. Great decision because in a matter of weeks she was able to bring him right up to speed so we would recommend her highly.
Thank you so much for this positive feedback! I thoroughly enjoy working with your son. He is a very sweet young man who works hard and has a great attitude. I'm very proud of the progress he has made and I'm confident he will continue to do well.
Mrs. Karen has been working with my son for a month and he really looks forward to their lessons (and his grades are improving). She is very patient and always willing to work with our busy schedule. I am so glad to have found her!
Karen is very patient and makes my son feel comfortable enough to have conversations with her in Spanish. After just a few lessons, his Spanish is already improving.
I have twin girls she is helping in Spanish III and so far one has improved in her first test after two meetings with Karen. The girls like her and understand her so far. Karen's communication has been great!
Thank you, Donna! It is a pleasure working with your daughters. They are very motivated students with a great work ethic. Thanks for the opportunity to help them bring up their grades in Spanish III.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. 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.
When I was in high school, I scored in the 700's on my SAT's, and in college, I was placed in the Honors English class. I have always been very strong in composition and vocabulary, and enjoy sharing my love of language with my students. Learning proper English grammar, spelling, composition, and pronunciation is essential to building a successful career in any field.
I have been a private tutor for more than ten years, and I love to see students gain confidence as they learn new skills. In addition to my tutoring experience, I work part time as an ESL and Spanish instructor for an international language school, offering both face-to-face and online lessons.
I am a very patient teacher, using the natural conversational approach to learning so that my students develop an "ear" for the language rather than memorizing vocabulary and grammar rules. In addition, I've been learning a second language (Spanish) since I was 11 years old, so I understand how frustrating it is when you struggle to communicate your thoughts but don't have the vocabulary to express yourself. Let me help you develop your listening comprehension and improve your ability to speak, read, and write English fluently!
I first started studying Spanish in 6th grade and have continued to build my fluency for nearly 40 years. I've been a high school Spanish teacher and currently work part time as an instructor for an international language school. I've been tutoring for well over a decade with students from junior high to college level, as well as adult professionals who want to improve their ability to communicate in the workplace. I'm very comfortable conversing in Spanish and have a strong command of grammar, vocabulary, and cultural context. Most importantly, I love teaching and try to make it engaging and enjoyable.
