I tutor Spanish at all levels. I studied Spanish and Portuguese at Brigham Young University. I have a BA in Spanish with a Portuguese minor. My Spanish evaluation upon graduation was "advanced high." This is one level below native. I do not have an foreign accent in Spanish or Portuguese (Brazilian). I taught at a language learning center working with 19 to 21 year olds. I have also taught Spanish as a long term substitute. I lived in the Dominican Republic for 2 years over two separate occasions. I have over 20 experience speaking Spanish. When teaching, I focus on helping students understand concepts that can be difficult grasp (i.e. subjunctive, pretreat vs. imperfect). The language is much easier to grasp when the student understands the "why" of a concept.

I also studied law at Washburn University School of Law. I am a licensed attorney. Teaching Spanish is something that I really enjoy because I understand the process and it is rewarding to help people get over the conceptual humps along the way to fluency.
