I earned a Bachelor's in History from California State University . I also minored in Political Science. I enjoy tutoring Spanish because I am a native speaker and it is a beautiful language. I have had a lot of experience tutoring Spanish in high school and in college. I can teach K-12 Spanish and some college level as well. I will be enthusiastic about teaching Spanish, History, and English. I look forward to helping students achieve their academic goals.
