I have a Master's Degree in Latin American Studies from the University of Arizona and a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology and Spanish from the University of Toledo. I am also pursuing a doctorate from The City University of New York, Graduate Center in Urban Education. I'm originally from Burton, Ohio - a small town outside of Cleveland. I started teaching Spanish in 2010 at the high school level in Ohio. I worked with students before and after school, and I really enjoyed getting to know each and every one of my students. After teaching at the high school level, I taught two years of Spanish at the University of Arizona in Tucson where I received my Master's Degree and one year of Spanish at Aurora Community College in Colorado. I tutored students weekly, as well as during my office hours. I am currently teaching Spanish part time at St Francis of Assisi school. I tutor all levels of Spanish, focusing on conversational skills while strengthening grammatical skills. I use whiteboards, creative writing exercises, songs, and short films to practice and strengthen skills. I enjoy tutoring because learning Spanish is fun! I also enjoy getting to know and learning from students. While I'm not teaching and tutoring, I am with my toddler twin sons. We like to hike, travel and spend time with family and friends.
