I am currently a PhD student in Spanish at the University of Kentucky. Though my ultimate goal is to become a college-level Spanish professor, I have several years of experience working with a wide variety of English and Spanish students, ranging in age from preschoolers to retirees, with proficiency levels between Novice and Advanced. I have taught in a variety of contexts, ranging from Montessori schools to art museums to traditional classroom settings. I enjoy working with a diverse group of students and presenting information to them in a manner that coincides with their individual learning styles. Whatever the students' academic background, the philosophy I abide by as an educator is to provide my students with a strong basis of knowledge that will ultimately enable them to learn independently. I help students achieve such independence with encouragement, instruction, and additional resources for the student to pursue at their own pace. When I am not helping folks learn English and Spanish, I enjoy studying other languages, traveling, and reading.
