I am a native of North Carolina. I graduated cum laude from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish. I currently hold a North Carolina Standard Professional Educator’s license with a Spanish K-12 endorsement. I have more than 20 years of combined experience in teaching and tutoring Spanish. I have extensive training in education and I speak Spanish fluently.
My approach to Spanish language instruction is focused and enthusiastic. I apply research-based methods and techniques, specifically through the use of multi-faceted practice activities designed to improve Spanish language skills, and build toward higher levels of proficiency. The different categories of practice activities that I use as techniques are designed to practice specific communicative skills such as: speaking, listening, reading, and writing. The lessons are integrated with the three modes of communication: interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational. I help students improve both their academic and conversational Spanish.
