About Martha


Bio

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 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.

Excellent Spanish tutor

Martha is great working wirh my son. She doesn't just correct the problems but makes sure he understands them. After just two sessions, his grades started improving. Martha is patient, helpful and works at the level and pace each student needs.
