I have a great love for languages and helping others reach their goals in learning a language. I am fluent in Spanish but at first I was a student in a Spanish class. I know the challenges of learning a foreign language and also the blessing of having a teacher who helped me along the way. I went from thinking Spanish 3 would be my last Spanish experience to going all the way to AP Spanish, getting my Bachelors in Spanish, studying in Mexico and visiting other Spanish-Speaking countries, completing Spanish courses at the Masters level to becoming a Spanish teacher myself! I even took some courses in French and studied abroad in the south of France to improve my skills. I love tutoring conversational Spanish and French because it's the most fun! I taught every level of Spanish at the public school level for 12 years and at the college level for 4 years. My greatest joy is to see the confidence of a student grow from day one to the last day of the course. Let's Learn!
