Teaching since:

I am a Licensed Spanish Teacher, and I am fluent, flexible and fun!! I would love to help you with Spanish--whether you are just beginning or in AP classes!

Why? Because I love Spanish! I began learning Spanish in a middle school in the Midwest. It was my second language--just like it is for you. So, I know what helped me remember the vocabulary and the grammar rules, and I am ready to share my personal tips and tricks with you.

My immersion experience included living with a Spanish family in Valencia, Spain, and by studying at the University of Valencia for two semesters. What an eye-opening experience!!

I have completed 9 years of classroom teaching at the Junior High/High School level. I also have been tutoring Spanish since 2012. Besides supporting middle/high school and college students, I also taught a 6-month course to managers at a distribution center for a very popular fast-food chain.

So, when would you like me to start helping you improve your progress in Spanish? I am ready when you are!

Cheryl did an amazing job again! She always makes sure what my daughter’s needs are, and goes over each item very carefully and thoroughly. My daughter’s understanding in Spanish significantly grew!! She also made sure to add extra time because we had missed a little time at the beginning of the session. Thank you, Cheryl, for your hard work!

Working with Cheryl has been a great experience! She has introduced me to wonderful resources that have enabled me to continue my study on my own. When we work together, I always come away with something new. I feel my Spanish has improved markedly since I began meeting with her once a week. As a person, she certainly is professional, responsive, and punctual. And just as important are her enthusiasm and sense of humor. I wholeheartedly recommend Cheryl.

Cheryl is an outstanding Spanish tutor. She quickly assessed my strengths and weaknesses and immediately provided appropriate lessons. She often emailed me during the week to provide motivation and online sites to use for practice. Cheryl is very knowledgeable, professional and flexible. She makes learning Spanish fun and relatively easy. You won't find a more conscientious tutor who really cares about the success of her students!

You cannot ask for a better tutor than Cheryl! She goes above and beyond every single time she teaches and I always feel that I have learned so much more each time she is with me! I would highly recommend her as an instructor for anyone that needs extra help to learn Spanish. It is not easy to learn a new language when you are older but she has helped me to get the job I was trying to get but wouldn't have without a second language. Thanks again Cheryl!

Cheryl did an incredible job with helping me learn and comprehend Spanish. I went from barely speaking and reading at all to having full on conversations with people in and out of the classroom. She helped me improve tremendously and will keep the lessons that she has taught me throughout my professional career!
