I enjoy helping students not only learn Spanish but help them understand that it opens up a whole new world culturally to them. My love for Spanish began when I traveled to Barcelona, Spain as a teenager and lived with a Spanish family for several months. It was during this time that I not only learned the language but I came to love the food, traditions, history of the country and it's people. Due to my friendship with my host family, I returned to Spain several more times and traveled...
I enjoy helping students not only learn Spanish but help them understand that it opens up a whole new world culturally to them. My love for Spanish began when I traveled to Barcelona, Spain as a teenager and lived with a Spanish family for several months. It was during this time that I not only learned the language but I came to love the food, traditions, history of the country and it's people. Due to my friendship with my host family, I returned to Spain several more times and traveled extensively throughout Spain.
While finishing my major in Spanish during my college years, I began tutoring other students who were struggling with their courses in Spanish. Later in my life, I tutored my oldest son in Spanish so that he was able to test out of Spanish 2 and move ahead to the next year.
Over the last several years I have been a substitute teacher for Spanish classes in a private school as well as tutored high school students in Spanish who wanted to improve their grades. In addition to teaching Spanish, I hosted several students from South American who lived and conversed with us daily in Spanish.
Teaching Spanish grammar and it's numerous rules is one of my strengths as well as giving tips on how to better memorize vocabulary. I encourage my students with organization and continued practice so that they can see progress in learning Spanish.
Please contact me at your convenience so I can help. I would love to answer any questions you may have or schedule a time to meet.

She has been tutoring our son, 8th grade in order to follow up his schoolwork (private school) . Focusing for the grammar, we looked many tutors, but we couldn't find as great as Jacqueline.

Building a confident learner
Jacqueline has been a huge asset to our family since she started tutoring our child. He was getting lost in the large classes at his high school but with Jacqueline ‘s guidance, he is building his confidence in learning and understanding Spanish 1. We will continue to use Jacqueline for Spanish 2 and I highly recommend her for any of your child’s Spanish tutoring needs!Kyla, 19 lessons with Jacqueline

Very Patient and Likable Tutor
Jacqueline N. is working with my 15 year old son, who fell an entire quarter behind in his second year of Spanish, lost all motivation and considered quitting Spanish all together. She listened and responded to his needs right off the bat and told him what he needed to hear to be willing to work again and improve his grade. Every time he meets with her, his confidence grows and he feels empowered again. Jacqueline is very patient and willing to work at his speed and teach him in a manner that makes sense with his learning style.Laura, 2 lessons with Jacqueline
