- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate
I have taken Spanish classes ever since kindergarten. I passed the AP Spanish test in high school and then went on to obtain my Bachelor's degree in Spanish at Calvin College.
While pursuing my Bachelor's degree, I studied abroad in northern Spain for 6 months. I lived with a host family who only spoke Spanish and, therefore, obtained real-life experience interacting with Spanish-speaking communities.

- Teaching since:
I am a bilingual (English/Spanish) Speech-Language Pathologist. I graduated with a Master's in Speech-Language Pathology and a Bachelor's in both Spanish and Speech-Language Pathology & Audiology. In addition, I have experience teaching both "English as a second language (ESL)" and "Spanish as a second language (SSL)".
My English and Spanish language students can expect to improve each week on grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and pragmatics (social use of language). I teach speaking, reading, and writing skills. I am also skilled in organizing and editing papers.
As a professional Speech-Language pathologist, I have excellent teaching and interpersonal skills. I am very patient with my students and love answering questions. My lessons are individualized for each student's goals and preferences. I am here to help you communicate with confidence, freedom, and expression!
