I’m a creative, fun and effective language teacher with experience teaching Spanish Dual Immersion and secondary Spanish, French and German as well as language tutoring.
I’m offering tutoring and customized language lessons which focus on the heart of the matter: actually learning the language and getting excited about using one’s language skills.
My lessons are based on the student’s needs including improved reading, speaking, listening and writing skills. I would like to inspire your student to catch a vision of their potential, future opportunities and enriched life as a fluent speaker of the target language.
Language teaching experience: Ten years total including two years teaching elementary Spanish Dual Language Immersion, four years teaching secondary Spanish and French, one year teaching children English overseas and other experience.
Tutoring experience: Three years tutoring languages and teaching customized language lessons and one year as a reading tutor for elementary school children.
Education experience: BA in English and German teaching with minors in Spanish and French teaching and a Utah teaching license; MA from Monterey Institute of International Studies with minor in Hispanic Studies; one year graduate work in second-language teaching.
Exams: I have passed the Spanish Praxis exam (speaking, listening, reading, writing, culture) and scored an advanced high on my Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI) for Spanish dual-immersion teachers.
Other language experience: Residence in four foreign countries; professional work for international NGOs; field work and other language-related work.
