Overview

Hola! I am a native Spanish speaker, fluent in both Spanish and English. I understand how difficult it can be to learn a new language, especially when you have other subjects to worry about. My personal learning experience helped me understand what is important in developing a practical and easy tutoring program and successfully implementing it.

My tutoring experience began in 2008, my first year of College. I was looking to earn a little cash on the side to help pay for books and school fees. My most memorable tutoring experience was when I lived in Spain for a few months and tutored College level Spanish.
I believe my qualification and many years of Spanish tutoring with students of all ages and levels have rounded my experience as a private tutor. I have been exposed to a variety of personalities, learning curves challenges and have had the opportunity to customize and direct my teaching to the individual students needs and personal style.

I am a Japanese business man that needed to learn spanish for my business dealing with clients overseas. Let me just say, I think Jennifer is just a stupendous teacher. She is sweet and patient and makes the material easy to grasp. She is also very easy to get a hold of and works around your schedule. Very impressed.
