Experienced and certified K-12 and university Spanish instructor of 10 years. I have a B.A. in Hispanic Linguistics, an M.A. in Applied Linguistics, and Ph.D. training in Hispanic Sociolinguistics. I have also lived and studied in Argentina and Spain.

To me, learning a language is much more than mastering grammatical concepts via boring and repetitious exercises. Instead, I view it as learning another culture and being able to connect with people around the world whom you may have never met before had you not learned that language in the first place. For that reason, I enjoy employing communicative language activities and games to make learning fun and relevant to the real world and to your lives. I also make sure to tailor the curriculum to match your interests, learning styles, and motivations for learning, I look forward to working together to help you achieve your 2020 language goals!

About Cassandra K.

I graduated from The Ohio State University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts in Hispanic Linguistics as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. I also have a Master of Arts in Applied Linguistics from New York University from 2015. Currently, I am a Ph.D. student studying Hispanic Sociolinguistics and the Sociology of Language at The University of Texas at Austin.

Before obtaining my M.A. in Madrid, I spent two years as a high school Spanish I, II, and III Instructor in Chicago. In regard to my own foreign language learning, I have been studying Spanish for 17 years and have lived in Spain and Argentina.

To me, learning a language is so much more than mastering grammatical concepts via boring and repetitious exercises. Instead, I view it as learning another culture and being able to connect and communicate with people around the world whom you may have never met before had you not learned that language in the first place. For that reason, I enjoy employing communicative language activities and games to make learning fun and relevant to the real world and to students' lives. I also make sure to tailor the curriculum to match students' interests, learning styles, and motivations for learning a language.

Besides learning languages and meeting people from other cultures, I love to hip hop and ballroom dance, travel, do yoga and be outdoors. Overall I am very excited for us to work together to help you reach your communicative goals in 2020!
