I love to teach Spanish and it is a true passion of mine. I am able to tutor basic Spanish up through advanced conversational and honors level Spanish courses. I can speak and teach Castilian Spanish (Spain) and various dialects of South/Central American Spanish. I am able to teach to different learning styles, and can craft lessons as needed for any student. I graduated from Houghton College with Bachelor of Arts degrees in Spanish and International Studies. I also spent time at the University of Granada in Spain at the School of Translation and Interpretation to study Spanish language, literature and culture. Since graduating I have worked for a government agency, and much of this work requires communicating in Spanish and across cultural lines. I am also qualified to teach ESL/ESOL as I have previously tutored both in the US and in Spain. My training in several foreign languages broadens my understanding of the language learning process and has helped me understand learning styles and to craft my session to best assist the learner.
