Looking for a tutor in Spanish, English, or ESL?

It would be great to work with you, to help improve language and writing skills in a fun, creative way. It's important to help students gain confidence by having a positive attitude and breaking down concepts so they can have small successes along the path. I am very organized and will follow up on lessons with comprehension quizzes and material review. I track students' progress and include "rewards" and incentives for them. Tutoring sessions should be serious in content, but relaxed and energetic in terms of approach.

I have many years of experience tutoring in language and literature. I'm currently a high school teacher with previous experience as a university professor. I love working with college students and high schoolers!!

I specialize in writing skills in English and Spanish. One of my favorite pastimes is reading and analyzing literature. I enjoy helping students both strengthen their writing skills and improve their vocabulary. I've worked with college students in composition and literature courses, and high school students with English assignments and test preparation. I have a Ph.D. in Latin American literature and I've taught English and Spanish to high school and college students. I can help with basic writing and reading skills, or with more complicated and specific guidance with writing assignments, editing, and style guide formatting.

I've taught college and high school Spanish and have tutored extensively over the years.

Very Informative! Great teacher!

Deanna is very patient, she was able to assess my areas of improvements. She is really knowledgeable and uses different resources to help me improve my Spanish.

Dornedria, 6 lessons with Deanna

Great Spanish Praxis Tutor

Deanna has been tutoring me for only a few weeks now to prepare for the Spanish Praxis. Not only is she knowledgeable of Spanish, but she knows the test inside and out. She knows specifically how to teach students into passing the test. Just after 2 lessons, I feel significantly more prepared to pass. I’d recommend Deanna to anyone who was preparing to take or who is struggling to pass the Spanish Praxis exam.

Michelle, 3 lessons with Deanna

Highly skilled with Praxis review

I feel like I am very well-prepared to pass the Spanish Praxis. Speaking is my weak point and we are focusing on that. The online platform is very conducive to learning and interacting. If you have any doubts as to your ability in listening, speaking, reading, or writing, don’t hesitate to contact Deanna.
