"Teachers who love teaching teach students to love learning". With over 15 years of teaching and tutoring experience, I love teaching and very much enjoy creating curriculum specific to students' interests and needs. I believe that engaging lessons, enjoyable classes, and a positive attitude create the best learning environment.
I have taught Spanish to all ages from Kindergarten to Adults. From Spanish 1 to College-Level courses, I have taught a diverse group of learners. At the graduate level, I have studied General Education, Curriculum and Instruction, and Spanish, earning degrees that have given me amazing tools that I use to make learning efficient, interesting, personalized, and goal-oriented.
