Former High School Spanish Teacher with 10+ years experience living in Asheville area

Methodology

My teaching methodology is not traditional in nature. I use songs, actions, visuals, and drawings to help students master concepts and to recall vocabulary. I believe that we need lots of different types of information presentation and practice in order to acquire new information. I use humor and I have a relaxed style. I prefer to tutor students in Spanish I and II at the high school and/or college level.

Background

I am a Jill of All Trades. My degree, however, is in Spanish Language and Literature from NC State University. I have taught Spanish in three different high schools in NC. During my tenure as a classroom teacher I tutored students before and after school--in small groups and one-one-one. I also have experience as a volunteer tutor at an after school program in my town.

My daughter transferred schools Freshman year and was behind in her Spanish class after the transfer. Elizabeth created a program for her to work on daily and over the winter break. Within about a months time Elizabeth had our daughter caught up and feeling confident in her Spanish class. Elizabeth is not only knowledgeable but is able to teach folks with different learning styles.

Elizabeth was my teacher in high school for Spanish I through IV. She is deeply invested in her students and a lot of fun. Her high school courses laid the foundation for me to pass a critical Spanish proficiency exam in college. I highly recommend her!
