I coached middle school students in academic mathematics competitions, such as the AMC 8/10 and Mathcounts, during the 2010-2011 academic school year at American Indian Public Charter School. My students received multiple awards during my first year as a math coach.

I also have experience tutoring AP and Honors courses in the social sciences and English. My students have achieved high scores on their end-of-year exams.

I worked as a tour guide at my alma mater's admissions office (Claremont McKenna College). Moreover, I have experience reviewing personal statements and resumes for college applications. Should you have any questions about the college admissions process, please don't hesitate to let me know.

As your teacher, I am committed to serving your needs according to your learning style as we embark on this new academic journey.

Private Spanish Teacher

I have been teaching Spanish for 20 years and also work as a Spanish/English interpreter, so my Spanish level is that of a native speaker. I've also lived in Spain, Mexico, and Guatemala for extended periods of time.

I teach to each students strengths and break down the grammar into easy to comprehend portions, as well focusing on the spoken aspect of the language; since it is the most important aspect of being able to communicate in the language. I utilise pictures, word association, songs, and a variety of techniques to reinforce and remember vocabulary.

In addition, I like to break lessons into 2-3 parts to avoid boredom on the part of the student. This can also include games specifically tailored to Spanish-language learners.

About Nicole

I am a teacher with over 20 years experience in Spanish, French, ESL, Social Studies, Cultural Anthropology, and Sociology. My philosophy of learning is that it should be fun, not just memorization. I incorporate a variety of different teaching methods to keep class interesting, such as songs,

Portuguese vs. Spanish: 10 Important Differences

It’s common for English speakers to mix up Portuguese and Spanish. Although the two languages have many similarities, there are some distinct differences you should know if you’re interested in studying Portuguese.
