About Erika H.

Hola amigos!

My name is Erika and I would love to teach you Spanish! I am the daughter of a German- American father and Panamanian mother. I am 100% bilingual in both English and Spanish. I grew up mostly in Latin America living in Costa Rica, Chile, Panama amongst visiting countries such as Peru, Dominican Republic, Argentina, Nicaragua, and Spain. If you want help on your Spanish homework, need someone to quiz you, converse with you etc. or need assistance in reading, writing and speaking the language I'm here to help! I make learning fun and more than anything I teach it in an applicable way so that you can use it as an every day language and not as just a way to pass a class. I have a Bachelors of Arts in Theatre Arts from Loyola Marymount University so if you want to include Spanish Soap Operas into the mix we can definitely do that! Cheers to learning a new language!

Experience

Spanish tutor to high profile indidivuals
Jun 2017 - Jun 2018

private students

Spanish tutored to a high profile family using discrepancy and respected the privacy of said individuals' status while doing in-home lessons. Interactive Spanish games were played to keep the children's energy up while still giving them the opportunity to practice dialogue with each other since both children took the lesson together.

Spanish Language Interpreter for a Dramatized Narrative
Nov 2016 - Nov 2016

UCLA

The Workers Union partnered with UCLA theatre program to create a dramatized narrative that was put up in front of an audience. I was hired to translate the narrative and then simultaneously speak it into a microphone so those in the audience who only spoke Spanish could hear the translation of what the "characters" were saying.

Spanish tutor for HS student
Jan 2014 - Jan 2015

private student

I tutored a 9th grade high school student attending a charter school. He needed to pass his class with a good grade to avoid attending summer school. I helped him with his homework, quizzed him, answered questions, reviewed, checked his work, left him practice sheets.

United States Embassy Political Section Assistant
Jun 2013 - Jul 2013

United States Embassy; San Jose, Costa Rica

I translated documents from English to Spanish/Spanish to English while also covering and summarizing Costa Rican current events for documents sent to Washington, D.C. both in English and Spanish as well that were classified and unclassified.
