Award-Winning Spanish Tutors in Houston, TX
Michelle "... Being a Cuban-American from Miami, I love the diversity of Houston and getting to try all the different ethnic foods, but my palate is still adjusting to spicy Mexican food! This past year I graduated with my Masters in History from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh where I was a Graduate Assistant. I attended undergraduate school at Franciscan University of Steubenville, where I graduated with the top GPA in my class. I discovered my particular interest in history as an undergraduate student, however I have a real passion for all of the humanities, such as literature, philosophy, theology, and political science. I have tutored a variety of ages and subjects, ranging from third grade math to college level languages..."
Zarrin "...Since graduation, I moved to Florida where I started my career in teaching and obtained my teaching certification. My first three years I worked as a pre-school teacher, and the last eight years I have been a high school teacher, having taught Spanish I, II, III, and AP Spanish. While I have tutored a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about the Spanish language, because I am a native speaker from Puerto Rico..."
Christina "...in English, M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction, and Ed.D. in Educational Leadership. Now, I have been an educator for 10 years and love to see students grow..."
Pooja "...Along with history and mathematics I am also available to tutor Spanish I, Spanish II, Biology, and SAT/ACT prep! I really enjoy tutoring in history and math because many students find these subjects to be difficult. The feeling when a student finally understands a concept that they were previously having difficulty with is amazing, and I love seeing a student's face brighten up when they achieve this new understanding. As many students have different learning styles, I believe that it is important to create an individualized study plan for each student that best fits their method of learning and allows us to make the most of the tutoring experience..."
Frances "I just graduated from Pomona College, in east Los Angeles, and I grew up in northern California and Beijing, China. In college, I majored in English and Philosophy/Politics/Economics, but I am passionate about a variety of subjects including math and Mandarin Chinese. Outside of class, I interviewed prospective applicants in the Pomona College Admissions Office and tutored my peers through the writing center. My tutoring philosophy is that boosting confidence and interest in a subject will lead to your success..."
Emmanuelle "Bonjour or Buenos días As a French native married to a Colombian, tutoring for me is a mean to share the two cultures I live in. It is not only about the grammar, the conjugation but also about... ...walking your imagination through a French boulangerie (bakery) at 10am on a Sunday in Paris and sharing with you 'la joie de vivre' and little bites of heaven. ...making you realize how salsa music and more can make you travel and understand how Spanish-speaking countries are a blend of colors and sounds of passion. Tutoring for me is all about being able to adjust techniques and approaches to meet YOUR learning styles and teach with patience. I believe that the student-tutor relationship should be built on honesty, trust and support where the sharing of experiences and lessons learned goes a long-way in building your self-confidence..."

The University of Texas - BA, Hispanic Studies
Farah "... As an Economics major, I enjoy tutoring quantitative subjects such as mathematics the most because I love watching complex concepts click into place for my students. However, I am also inspired by the creativity and critical-thinking fostered by English classes and enjoy engaging with my students in qualitative realms as well. In addition, I am also seasoned in standardized testing and essay editing. Most of my free time is spent at Rice’s theatre where I can usually be found stage-managing productions..."
