I am an organized, reliable, engaging teacher/tutor with a passion for Spanish and English!
I majored in Spanish and Business Economics at Wheaton College (Illinois). Because I have studied Spanish for over 10 years, I know the ins and outs of the grammar for every level, whether that's middle school, high school, or college. I worked as a Spanish tutor my Senior Year of college, during which I aided college-level students with their various questions and doubts in their Spanish classes. After graduating from Wheaton College, I lived in Cusco, Peru for 2 years, which really helped me to implement the grammar I had learned for so long in conversation and in everyday life. Most of all, I just love the Spanish language and any opportunity to be involved with it!
I also obtained my TEFL certification from Máximo Nivel in Cusco, Peru. I then worked for 9 months as an ESL teacher, educating Spanish-speaking adults and teenagers, ranging from beginner to advanced levels. I also served as the Assistant Academic Director for 2 months during my time as a teacher there.
Language is one of my passions, and I think being passionate about the subject is an essential part of being a teacher/tutor. I love the process of helping students increase their language ability and I love seeing their confidence grow as they learn new elements to Spanish or English. My favorite part about tutoring/teaching is creating an environment where students can realize that learning a language can be very fun!
In addition to language, I have a love for tennis, hiking, all things outdoors, salsa dancing (which I picked up in Peru), ping pong, mystery novels, and movies.
I would be honored to have the opportunity to walk with you in your Spanish or English education!
