Hi all! A little bit about myself:
Since a service trip to Nicaragua that I went on in High School, I have been passionate about learning Spanish. I had taken Spanish classes in High School previously, but once I decided to make it my own personal mission to learn Spanish, I sought out every resource I could find and took every opportunity I could get my hands on in order to independently study and practice.
Right after graduation, I accepted an assignment from my church to serve as a missionary in Mexico. This was basically a dream come true for me. For 18 months, I lived in and around Mexico City and was blessed with the opportunity to interact with native speakers all day every day (October 2013 to April 2015).
During that time, not only did I become more motivated to improve my Spanish, but I also developed a love for teaching English. So many people who I interacted with were eager for opportunities to practice and learn my native toungue. I tried my best to teach and practice English with them as much as I could, and I found it to be extremely fulfilling.
Since being back in the US, I have gotten married, had a baby, and studied to be a Spanish/English interpreter. I am excited for this opportunity to be a Spanish and ESL tutor at this time so that I can continue pursuing my passion and sharing it with others!
Please feel free to send me a message if you have any questions!
Together with various native Spanish-speakers, I spent 18 months in and around Mexico city teaching the gospel and offering service to anyone who needed it.
I studied, spoke, and wrote in Spanish during this time and also had the opportunity to offer English lessons to Spanish-speakers.
