Silvia

I am from Lima, Peru. I studied Dentistry and earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the Universidad de San Martin de Porres. After working as a dentist for several years, I moved to the U.S. where I learned English. I am proud to be bilingual and I love helping students reach that goal as well. I've worked with a wide range of students from children to adults. I speak Spanish and English everyday which helps me understand the common challenges and pitfalls when learning either language. I believe that learning a language takes more than just worksheets and memorization. I believe that students learn a language best when they integrate it into their life and other interests. This deepens the motivation to master the language and quickly broadens vocabulary and knowledge. I try to tailor my lesson plans to the individual student and work at their pace to ensure learning is persistent and strengthened.

I am able to teach all levels of Spanish, including AP Spanish. I also help students learn English as a Second Language and prepare for the Test of English as a Foreign Language. In my free time, I enjoy dancing, Zumba, Yoga, traveling, and spending time with my family.
