Can't get a grasp on Spanish? I can relate to you! During high school, I did not enjoy, value, or comprehend Spanish. However, once I entered college, I enrolled into a Spanish course and suddenly everything changed. After that four-month semester, I learned more Spanish than I could ever imagine. Thus, I know what it's like to go from "NO-Spanish to KNOW-Spanish"! Once you understand the foundations of the Spanish language, it becomes much easier than you think; I'll show you how. When it comes to my tutoring style, I place an emphasis on what I like to call "The Four Pillars" of learning Spanish, which I will reveal to you during our time together. We will go through a variety of learning exercises including: verb recognition flashcards, assessment tests, analyzing basic Spanish literature, and more! Here's a little bit about me:
-Working towards minor in Spanish at Metro State University
-Began working with middle students at age 14; and high school students at 19.
-I thoroughly enjoy reading books and articles.
Undergraduate Degree: Metro State University - Bachelor of Science, Exercise Science
