My name is Mandi and I'm completely fluent in the Spanish language. My knowledge and experience came through a different route where I lived in Honduras for 18 months. I didn't know Spanish before I left and had to learn completely engulfed in the culture and language of that country. I returned home to the States and instantly entered a Spanish level 3-4 class and started tutoring right away. It's my belief that the best way to learn a language is to be engulfed by it and that's what I promise my students. It can be hard to learn another language when surrounded by an environment of native English speakers, but I know the keys and tricks that helped me learn and understand even more since I've been back in the US. Not only that, but we can be shy in practicing what we know even when we're not fluent yet. I was that way when I started out in Honduras and as a missionary, my purpose was to start speaking to people from my first day, whether I was fluent or not! I promise a comfortable atmosphere conducive to learning and a quick transition into a beautiful and expressive language!
