As a Spanish tutor, creating a sense of excitement about learning a new language and discovering different cultures is something that I am very passionate about. Being able to communicate with people of different cultural backgrounds around the world is an enriching experience that I believe all language learners can achieve. I am also a proponent for using a variety of tools to make Spanish more enjoyable and relatable, including songs, movie clips, comics, and current news. My goal when tutoring is to create an environment where students of all ages can feel at ease, whatever their level of Spanish.
I recently graduated from Ohio State University with a degree in Spanish. During my time there, I was lucky enough to study abroad for 5 months in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where I took university courses with both local and international students. This experience provided me with an in-depth knowledge of Argentine culture and colloquial language.
I look forward to having the opportunity to inspire a love of learning in my students. My hope is that they will end each session with a greater understanding of the Spanish language and a sense of pride in their progress that results from their hard work.
