My passion and enthusiasm for educating others is very evident from the first tutoring experience with me. I listen to each student's individual needs and learning style to develop interesting, fun, and interactive methods to encourage growth, understanding, and enjoyment of the subject. I, too, am a second language learner- so I get you and your needs! We'll have fun while I teach you the tips and tricks that made me a great Spanish professional.

I graduated in 2013 from Le Moyne College in Syracuse, NY with a degree in Public Relations and Spanish. After graduation, I embarked on a two and a half year journey through Costa Rica where I was a tour guide for a Spanish language school and Ecuador where I was a volunteer teacher for two years. As a teacher in Ecuador, I worked with impoverished children and adults on English language development, as well as Spanish language development for native Kichwa speakers, among other subjects. After that, I worked in higher ed and continued to work in non-profit until last year. I returned to Ecuador as a Director for 1 year where I operated in my job as the only gringa among my Ecuadorian colleagues. I currently have taken the DELE Spanish Exam level C2 and am awaiting my results.

Through these experiences, I learned that for a student to grow academically, he or she must also have a comfortable, supportive, and interactive learning environment. My goal is to offer each student a unique and fun experience to all my students!

About Caitlin M.

Whether you're trying to pass a class, converse and practice, or learn how to pick someone up en español, I'm your lady. I'm a Spanish language tutor, interpreter, and future Master in Nursing as a bilingual nurse, and can't wait to work with you!

I started studying Spanish late in life (at 18), but grew immensely in passion, technical ability, and fluidity when I moved to Costa Rica at 21. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish in 2013 and have lived in Latin America for a total of 3 and a half years since.

I was not naturally talented in the Spanish language when I started my journey. I got C's and B's in classes- messed up tests, struggled with conversation. The key to my success was making the language come alive for me! So- I took my lessons from the classroom and brought them into cooking classes, restaurants, bars, animal shelters, volunteer opportunities, and other activities that speak to my heart. My goal with you will be to do the same. Let's make the language come alive for you or stoke that fire even more so you can achieve your language goals. I'm with you in this and can't wait to work with you!
