Knowledge is my passion and education is a way to pass this passion to my students. Playing is one of the ways I use to teach since I have verified the power of playing in learning.
I grew up in Cuba where I got a bachelor's degree in French Language from the University of Havana with several trainings in France. In Las Vegas, Nevada, where I live, I got a master's degree in Early Childhood from the University of Nevada-Las Vegas.
I tutor Spanish, French (any level), and English Language Arts and Math (primary grades). Since my mother tongue is Spanish, I feel very comfortable working with; French is a personal passion; and I work every day teaching English and Math (K-2) in a school setting, after working online during the Covid pandemic. I really feel comfortable in any of these subjects.
My teaching philosophy? Every person can learn if teachers discover what motivates them. My tutoring style? Creating empathy with students.

One of my hobbies is rock hunting. I have found beautiful specimens in the Colorado River, in Arizona and Nevada, and in the mountains around. I have polished them in my tumbler and made a few neckless for my family and friends. It’s addictive!
