About this tutor

I've been teaching Spanish for the past four years, and am the Founder & Executive Director of Legato Lingua, a non-profit organization that teaches foreign languages to children through group sessions at public libraries and schools; I have taught over 1000 students in this capacity. I am also a BA in Spanish at Virginia Commonwealth University, and have volunteered as a Medical Interpreter. I also have experience in curriculum development for language classes, but can also tailor my sessions to my students' needs.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

When I meet a new student, I always try to get to know them to understand their expectations and what they want to get out of the tutoring session, as well as their current level and proficiency in Spanish. Whether a student is looking for a few sessions in a specific topic area, or a long-term plan to achieve fluency, I always create a plan that caters to the student I am working with.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have founded Legato Lingua, an organization that specializes in teaching foreign languages. Therefore, I have experience creating curriculum and teaching Spanish to many students at once, as well as finding engaging ways to keep students interested in learning languages. I also am currently pursuing a Bachelor's in Spanish (along with Biology), and have experience taking Spanish courses at the highest level.


How did you get started teaching?

I've always loved teaching and empowering students to achieve their full potential. I started off as a Golf Coach for young children back as a freshman in high school, and I loved being able to support young golfers on their journeys in the sport. Since then, I've translated this to working as a Tutor and founding my own educational non-profit organization.


What types of students have you worked with?

All kinds of students! I welcome and accept people from all backgrounds, ages, races, sexual orientations, walks of life :)


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would make sure to find someone who is familiar with teaching and really drilling in the concepts. Often, it's one thing to know a language, and another thing to teach one. As someone who has had many years of formal Spanish instruction, I understand that having teachers who can explain the in-depth grammar behind things is very important.
