I believe that learning languages should be fun! I grew up in a bilingual household and languages have always been a huge part of my life. I love sharing my passion with my students. I think it is important to tailor our time together to meet your goals, and to do it in a creative and flexible way. I also am a continual language learner, so I understand the struggle and am always finding new online tools to help the learning process. I've been tutoring and teaching English and Spanish for 10 years, and can't wait to work with you!
About Catherine D.

I'm a world travel junkie and coffee lover. I grew up in the SF Bay Area in a bilingual household, and continued to explore the world and the diverse and vibrant people who fill it. I studied Spanish and International Studies as an undergrad, and used my language skills to tutor throughout university, and ever since. I pursued dual careers in education and translation, working as a linguist and teaching in both the United States and Spain. In my free time, I've explored Western Europe, Asia, and Latin America. I work hard to be an accessible language instructor and hone my own skills by continuing to be a language learner myself! The current language I'm working on is French. I love meeting new people and sharing experiences and am looking forward to meeting you!
