I earned a Bachelor in Spanish and in Sociology at The State University At Albany , and two Certificates of Teaching English as a Second language for tourism in Colombia. I also studied Spanish at Universidad de Costa Rica. In addition, I received intensive orientation and pedagogical training in the city of Bogota under the instruction of renowned teacher-training institute NICA (Institucin Universitaria Colombo Americana) .
I have taught Spanish and French at the High School level. I also offered Haitian Creole , English, Spanish and French in small groups and online. I independently planned and taught ESL classes to tourism service providers in Cartagena, Colombia.
In my classes, I will share my culture with you and I will enjoy learning from your culture also. I am persistent and I will always try to give you extra help outside of class if it's needed. Being able to help someone, sharing knowledge with an individual and seeing the progress made by my students make me love tutoring.
Passionate about teaching I have traveled extensively, tutoring high school , college students and adults in Haiti, Costa Rica and in Colombia for the Travel For Change program; adults and young people looking to improve their language skills ; While I tutor a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about Haitian Creole, Spanish, culture and History. In my spare time, I enjoy listening to Soca , dancing , playing soccer, learning new languages , watching anime, traveling when I can and I would like to start with zumba.
