About Kristine

I learned Spanish by living in Sevilla, Spain when I was 18. I took care of kids and socialised, and didn't speak English for a year. At the UW I took advanced Spanish courses in language and literature as part of my Latin American Studies degree. Later I lived in Puerto Rico for 3.5 years.

I also did my PhD in World Languages Education. I conducted my research in Puerto Rico, much of it in Spanish. The research involved a lot of reading, as well as interviewing teachers (in Spanish). I have also studied my advisor's "new" language learning pedagogy which focuses on motivation, student-led projects, the use of video, and real-world experiences. Strategies involve approximating the immersion experience. Lastly, my grammar skills are also sharp.

I have taught English in three different countries.

I learned the languages by traveling and studying.

I have a strong combination of travel and study (degree) experiences that qualify me as a great tutor.
