FAQs


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

I have taught Spanish as a second language for four years at the high school level. I also taught conversational English for four years in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. I received a B.A. in Spanish from Santa Clara University and an M.A. in Spanish from Middlebury College. As an undergraduate student, I studied abroad for one semester in Salamanca, Spain, and another semester in La Habana, Cuba. I also hold a certification as a professionally licensed tour guide from the International Tour Managment Institute.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$50/hour

I normally meet with students twice a week Monday-Friday for 30 minutes or 1 hour.

During the summer months, my schedule is flexible!


How did you get started teaching?

I first started teaching in college when giving English lessons to Spanish speaking day workers in California. After graduation, I moved to Palma de Mallorca, Spain, where I taught English as a second language as a Culture and Language Assistant for the Spanish government's Ministerio de Educación. After four years, I returned to the United States and began teaching Spanish at the high school level.  


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked mostly with high school students. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

A recent event I am fond of was when I gave a speech in Spanish about the connection between leadership and improv comedy. I am a member of the Hispanic Business Network Bilingual Toastmaster Club, which has given me the opportunity to continually hone and practice my public speaking skills in Spanish. 


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

I would advise the student to work with a teacher who caters to their particular learning needs. Does the student have any special interests the teacher should incorporate into the lesson? As a student, if you are having fun during the lesson and the activities are engaging, that's a sign you are also learning. Also if you take risks and are not afraid to make mistakes, that means your teacher is creating a a safe, comfortable learning environment that promotes language acquisition.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

It is helpful for students to be resourceful and to try to seek solutions independently if they are confused about something. However, after doing the homework and consulting their notes, students may still need help, and this is normal. At that point, students should initiate contact with the teacher and reach out for help.
