About this tutor

Background experience in teaching & working with all grade levels & ages. After receiving my Bachelor's of Science degree in Spanish with the University of Denver, I obtained my teaching license with MSCD & went on to teach 1st grade in Spanish for my ELA-S classroom. I completed a training program that taught how to teach a 2nd language, as I also taught ESL. I also taught Spanish, ESL & all grade levels with Cherry Creek School District. Additionally I taught Spanish with private Montessori schools & enjoy using this training, years of work & experience to craft individualized lessons to support students reaching their goals. 

Seeing students soar as additional skills are added & mastered on their learning journey.

    Ms. Porter is creative, organized, and great with children. My daughter enjoyed her Spanish games and themed activities that help to make learning a second language more fun. She gets our hearty two thumbs up.
