Ages 12+ and special needs

Teaching since:
1994

My first language was Spanish, then I formally took and passed the AP Spanish exam in high school. I pursued a bachelor's degree in Spanish Literature and then moved on to teach Dual Immersion in Spanish at the Elementary Level. My fluency also extends to culture. By traveling to Spanish speaking countries I bring added experiences to you!

Students can expect a variety of teaching techniques to improve grammar, conjugating verbs, and tips for vocabulary retention. For AP Spanish exams in Literature and Language, I find that non-native speakers benefit from verbal practice. My background in teaching special education children also helps me quickly identify areas of need. If you are looking to improve your conversational Spanish, then I have fun and creative ways to enhance your practice.

Let's start where you are and improve from there. My passion for words is my first love! I look forward to any questions (preguntas) that you may have.
