About Martha

I am a certified Spanish teacher and have taught and tutored French as well. I have recently retired after 10 years of teaching in the local area with a total of 15 years (including Texas and Arizona as well).

Although I never got my master's degree (30 hours, I have over 100 hours of post graduate credits) I have 4 adult children who have all graduated from college. Three out of the four have also excelled in their pursuit of languages: Russian, Portuguese, and Arabic.

I became interested in foreign languages partly because I was born in Panama as a "Navy brat" when the U.S. still owned the Canal Zone. I love both Spanish and French and also took 3 years of German. I was fortunate to attend a Summer Institute in Guadalajara in the 70's through the University of Arizona. I also grew up on the "frontera" with Mexico.

I have tutored before when I was a "stay at home mom" and have a deep love of teaching. I enjoy the one on one contact with young people aspiring to learn and better themselves.

Approved subjects

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.
