I am a recent graduate of Skidmore College where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. I also studied Spanish and Intergroup Relations. I am very passionate about the Spanish language and became fluent in Spanish after spending six months in Buenos Aires, Argentina and six weeks in Atenas, Costa Rica. I have informally tutored both native Spanish-speakers and native English-speakers in English and Spanish. I love to share my passion for Spanish and language with others and help students excel in their practice of the Spanish language. I have also helped students with college essays and grant proposals for funded summer internships.
I understand how difficult learning a language can be and know from personal experience that it takes a lot of effort and dedication from both the student and the teacher. As a tutor, I commit to putting in the effort to prepare fun, engaging activities and lessons that make it easier to dedicate one's self to language acquisition. Additionally, I will meet the student where he/she is in his/her learning and tailor lesson plans and tutoring sessions to the personal interests, needs and goals of the student.
I strongly believe that we are all each other's teachers in understanding humanity, and I look forward to learning about different perspectives and experiences from students. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, gardening, reading, yoga, natural healing, meeting new people, and trying new things!
