Fully Bilingual Former High School Spanish Teacher with 25 years experience to all levels in Cobb County area

Methodology

I am a bilingual Spanish teacher with 25 years of classroom and tutoring experience.. I have had the pleasure of teaching and tutoring every level from Pre-Spanish to Advanced Placement Spanish. I have also helped several adults with second language acquisition.

My lesson structure varies with the customer's needs and learning styles.

I am a very hands on teacher and believe in "useful Spanish" which means using the language when speaking in order to function and be understood.

After all, isn't the reason why we want to learn another language is to communicate with those of other cultures?

No one is going to stop you on the streets of Madrid and say, "Please conjugate the verb to be in imperfect tense". :)

Background

I learned Spanish and English at the same time. Both my parents were raised in Spain and I am very proud of that!

I have been a high school Spanish teacher for 25 wonderful years and I loved it! My students typically scored very well on Pre- and End of course tests as well as an average of 4 to 5 on the AP Spanish Examination.

My largest class has been 40 students and my smallest (other than private tutoring) has been 5.

I have a rapport with younger students as well as older. You are never young or too old to learn a language.
