I am a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Arts in History (primarily Latin American History). I have always enjoyed learning about other places and cultures. Living and working in Puebla, Mexico from 2004-2006, ignited my desire to teach Spanish. I began teaching Spanish in the fall of 2007 and have taught Spanish I, Spanish II, and Spanish III for almost nine years.
I tutor Spanish (reading, writing, conversation, pronunciation, etc.), and I have experience teaching a wide range of ages. Knowing another language opens doors to many opportunities, and I love being able to help others become closer to those opportunities.
I believe it is important to understand and engage students with different learning styles in order to foster student success. As a classroom teacher and as a tutor, I strive to identify my students' primary learning style in order to most effectively and clearly teach them.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, exercising, gardening, listening to music, and spending time with family and friends.
