Hola! I am a graduate student from Cal State University of Los Angeles with a Bachelors of Arts in Spanish. My dream since I was a little girl was to be a teacher. I always wanted a profession that was dedicated to helping people or society. I am currently completing a Single Subject Teaching Credential program at the Charter College of Education of CSULA to become a Spanish teacher for high school students. Since my first language is Spanish, I had the opportunity to learn this language very well, as well as the Latin culture. I have worked as a high school substitute teacher where I had the opportunity to teach all levels of Spanish (Spanish I, II, III, IV and AP Spanish Language and Literature). Prior to that experience I worked at a Learning Resource Center as a Spanish and computer skills tutor. Working at the Learning Center gave me the opportunity to support college students from all ages, from teenagers to adults returning to the school setting. Furthermore, completing a teaching credential program has given me the opportunity to observe various teachers and learn distinct instructional methods. As a tutor I consider very crucial to not only teach academic lessons, but also to teach the students how to learn through different studying skills and learning styles.
Being a Spanish tutor has given me the greatest satisfactions in life. The aspect about tutoring that I enjoy the most is that by helping students I also learn from them. It fulfills my soul when the students come back to me and tell me that they obtained a better grade thanks to my help, support and motivation. In my free time I like listening to Spanish music, dancing and trying different restaurants with my friends. Coffee, Mexican food, teaching Spanish and making a positive difference in the students’ lives are my passions.
