I have 6 years of experience teaching Spanish and English at both the high school and college levels. I have taught everything from Spanish 1 through advanced literature courses. In 2013 I completed my doctorate in Spanish Literature at Harvard University. I enjoy working with students one on one and helping them feel empowered to overcome the subjects that challenge them. I also have experience working with students with learning differences, and have worked with children and adults. Whatever your goals are with Spanish, I can help you get there!
