About this tutor

Hi! I am a highschool student who speaks fluent French and Spanish! I have been speaking Spanish since I was a child, and I lived in Paris for over a year, so I have experience both in classroom and in the world. I love learning languages and if I could help students find their passion for languages, it would mean the world to me. I have won many French and Spanish awards in my school, and I am happy to help anyone who needs it!

    Hello All, Rebecca tutored me in Spanish, and helped me improve my speaking skills. I just moved to Spain, and her class helped me more than I could have ever asked her. She is younger than I am, and I was a bit worried at first, but her age did not affect her work ethic. You should try her out and see how it goes!

FAQs


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

When working with a new student, I like to take a look at their background in the language, whether or not they have previous experience in a class or exposure in the world, as this can change how I teach the student. I find that understanding grammar consepts is the most important in learning a new language, added with reading and listening to insure a clear understanding of what is correct and incorrect when using the language.  


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

As I am in high school right now I know how hard classes can be for children, and I know exactly what teachers are looking for in homework, projects, and tests. I can specifically work with the student as both a peer and a tutor to help both learn the language and create an understanding that will prepare them for classwork and tests. 


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching by tutoring other kids in my French and Spanish classes who needed extra help, and from there I have started to work with kids of all ages online, as well as adults. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with both beginner and advanced students. I have also worked with native speakers who are struggling in the classroom, as they do not understand why grammar consepts work the way they do. I can work with a variety of students who need help with their work.  


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

When I lived in Paris I helped teach a little girl who had moved there from Spain how to speak French. She was 8 years old, and working with her was one of the best experiences of my life. 


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

I would look for someone who you can relate to and can enjoy your tutoring sessions with, as working with a tutor who you do not like makes it harder to learn the content. Have fun while you learn!
