After having a fantastic Spanish teacher starting in kindergarten through grade five, I had a bit of hiatus in my learning until going to college where I reached fluency by interacting with friends and teammates along with my own studying. Soon after beginning college, a synergy emerged when I bolstered my informal learnings of Spanish with formal university classes. I graduated from Kennesaw State University with a B.S. in Integrative Studies and a minor in Spanish in 2018 after testing out of several upper level Spanish courses. During my studies, I tutored fellow Spanish learning college students in the Foreign Language and Resource Center on campus, helping those having trouble along with those that wanted to put in extra work for the love of the language. I continued on to study abroad in Malaga, Spain where I was fortunate to be able to travel much of southern Spain, as well as Europe, learning bits of storied history and culture at every turn.
It is my goal to help you achieve your goals! For students of all learning levels from struggling to gifted to adults; I am a passionate proponent of not just helping students learn the material, but helping them to learn how to learn the material by allotting focus on not just a student's goals, but the process therein.
Some of my interests beyond Spanish and foreign languages are space exploration, playing guitar and soccer, technology, the outdoors and science fiction books and tv/film.
