ABOUT ME:

EXPERIENCED SPANISH TEACHER:
23 years of experience teaching Spanish. I have helped students in their journey to learn Spanish from beginning to advanced levels. After teaching so many students throughout the years, I intuitively know how folks learn a language. Many of these students were high school and college students looking to do well in their classes.

—Native Speaker:
I didn’t speak English until I turned 18 years old. I'm a native Spanish speaker who has been reading Latin America and Spanish novels since intermediate school. I grew up around Spanish nuns who were very serious about language skills. I tested out of language requirements in college, and started teaching Spanish after I graduated.

—Advanced English and Spanish skills:
I know English and Spanish really well so I can explain complicated Spanish concepts and phrases to you in English, which expedites your learning. I will also help you understand how Spanish and English are different, so that you don't get confused with tricky grammar rules and word order.

Education: After speaking only Spanish all my life I went to Ohio State University and got a degree in Journalism and Advertising. After graduation, I obtained a Master’s degree in Telecommunications Arts from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Afterwards, I have worked in the arts for years but always kept teaching students on the side. My work in the arts includes owning a venue for may years where artists performed music shows, comedy events and plays. Graduated with honors from both programs and was awarded a full fellowship for my master’s degree.

—California (CSET) test:

—I took the Spanish tests required to teach Spanish in California (CSET) and got top scores in all its categories:
linguistics, reading, culture, grammar, literature, spoken and writing skills. You can rest assured that my language skills are top notch.
My English skills are strong as well because of my educational background.

—I know grammar rules by heart:
After more than two decades of teaching Spanish and tutoring high school and college students, I can teach grammar rules to you at the same time that I provide you with spoken drills, and at the same time that I converse with you in Spanish!!

—Complete Process from Beginning Sills to Advanced :
I have helped students throughout the years to learn Spanish from zero to advanced skills creating personal relationships that last for a long time as I also help them keep their language skills current. I even help them to sharpen their language skills at work. Throughout the months I mold my student’s diction and help them transition to Spanish speaking countries or into jobs that demand Spanish skills or even join a Spanish speaking family.

—CLIENTS INCLUDE:
-Second generation Latinos that need someone to help them build a bridge between the Spanish they know and advanced Spanish
