Accomplished tutor seeks inspired, dedicated students looking to actively improve their language skills. Whether you are just starting out or looking to fine tune more advanced skills, I am excited for the opportunity to help you reach your academic, personal, or professional language goals. I currently work as a translator and bilingual human resources professional in Lawrence, KS. I received a Master of Arts degree in Spanish and Latin American Literary, Cultural, and Linguistic Studies through NYU-Madrid and a Bachelor of Arts degree in both Spanish and Romance languages through Truman State University.
My multiple study abroad experiences have helped me to develop teaching and learning strategies suitable for both immersion and classroom style settings. I have worked with students of all age groups and demographics and take pride in adapting each tutoring session not only to the coursework being studied, but also to the individual student and their particular learning style.

I am an avid runner currently training for my 3rd half marathon. I recently learned to snowboard and am anxiously awaiting the next opportunity to return to Colorado to improve my skills. Some of my other hobbies include: reading, crafting, hiking, camping and even playing the occasional video game. I enjoy spending time with my 90lb great pyrenees mix, Atlas, and volunteering with a local animal rescue as a foster parent for other dogs in need.
