Learn Spanish with experienced native Speaker, Certified teacher fun at any age.

Methodology

I am originally from Uruguay and have been at US for many years. I retired form Columbia Public Schools in 2007. I came to this country with a scholarship from United Nations to finish a Master in Science. My degree is in Veterinary Medicine. Because I love to work with young people and love my language and culture I certified for the State of Missouri and Nationally, I changed carriers and have been teaching for the last 25 years. I have experience working online since I have developed and taught Spanish for MU online for the past 8 years. I love to create interactive lessons, specially for young children. For higher levels of Spanish I integrate current events in my lessons; for example for AP courses I follow the College Board directions and integrate, news, readings, literature for each area of content that are required to master for the AP exam. For adults I integrate language and culture interesting for that age and specially when people that like to travel wants to learn the language.

Background

I taught at the Columbia Public Schools for 13 years; at Columbia Independent School for five years.
I was an Instructor for the Department of Romance Language from 1986 to 1993. I have been a online instructor since 1993 up to 2017. I have tutored several high school students. I was an interpreter for Medical , Legal and Educational Institutions. I have been an translator for several years mainly on the medical field.

Perfect! Nancy is a wonderful teacher! She always uses a variety of vocabulary and I am able to improve my own fluency by talking with her. She also has extensive experience teaching in the schools, so she is able to explain the grammar very well.

Nancy's response

Elizabeth is a great student! I really enjoyed our first class and looking forward fro many more.

Lizzie

Excellent! I had some fantastic one-on-one Spanish lessons with Nancy. I wish I could continue with her but my schedule will not permit that right now-- maybe in the future :) My lessons were tailored to what I needed and flexible around when I had them. I had a great time and my confidence grew! Thanks so much! :)

Nancy's response

Lizzie, it has been fun talking to you and teaching you has been wonderful. Hope that you have a great semester!

Catherine

Perfect! Nancy is excellent! I haven't spoken conversational Spanish in years and Nancy has been wonderful in helping me review the basics, practice speaking and become more confident. I appreciate the way she tailors the lessons to my interests and level, and she makes it fun! I recommend her for anyone of all ages and experience levels who would like to attain fluency.

Julia

Perfect! I have loved working with Nancy. I haven't studied Spanish in ages, and she has helped me regain a lot of confidence and really improve my all aspects of my Spanish (speaking, grammar, comprehension, etc). She has tailored all of her lessons to my level and goals, and I really enjoy our conversations.

Nancy's response

I have enjoyed very much teaching Julia all this time. She is very interested in improving her skills and we have a great time practising Spanish. She is also a very interesting person and we share very good moments.

Master teacher, trusted colleague, global citizen….these are some of the outstanding qualities of Nancy. I am pleased to write a letter of recommendation for Nancy, having known her as a teacher at West Junior and for the last five years at Columbia Independent School, four of which I was her Upper School Director. Nancy teaches both Middle and Upper School Spanish, from Spanish I through AP and Advanced Spanish Seminar. Our graduates, in their commencement speeches, always recognize her, not only for her ability to help them speak fluent Spanish, but also because of her empathy, humor, and motherly ways. She is beloved by all!

Nancy is the teacher who has her students come to her home to eat breakfast, so they can practice Spanish in social settings. She also invited the senior class of 12 to her home for dinner, providing each with a personalized letter about their growth, not only in the Spanish language, but also in character. She provides engaging lessons that maximize student interest and the use of language, as well as holding each student to high expectations and accountability. She often integrates her lessons with our Innovation Center, as well as with English, Science, and Performing Arts.

But what sets Nancy apart, besides her exemplary teaching, is her passion about learning and finding new ways to get all students involved… in our school, the local community and in global cultures and service. Here are just a few examples: During our intersession week on Survival, she had students come to Centro Latino to learn how its community center is meeting the needs of both Latino students and others in ‘”at risk” neighborhoods. She planned a trip to Paris and Barcelona this year for students and interested parents to learn more about global cultures. She is a world traveler, visiting Cuba in January to assist with the filming of a documentary about the Cuban people, its culture and its tumultuous history. She is the coordinator of our Rotary International’s Interact Club, which has provided community service to local agencies. She took our seniors to the Central Missouri Food Bank so they could give back to the community as part of their senior week activities. She organized a trip with our eighth graders to Arkansas and the Heifer International project, where students stayed in simulated poverty, learning how to promote sustainable solutions to global hunger and poverty. She was instrumental in having one of our students selected by the National Youth Ambassadors program of America to visit Colombia last summer. And lastly, she has spearheaded the Children’s Grove organization at our school, helping to promote kindness and mental health.

Nancy is a great role model for both students and teachers, not only for her belief in ongoing professional growth, but also for her approach to creative problem solving, engaging instruction, and supportive relationships. She also is a great team player, leading a teacher committee this spring that worked with students to build an interactive wall and light display on the solar system in preparation for the upcoming Solar Eclipse.

But I think Nancy’s most important qualities are the relationships she has built with students, parents, and colleagues. She is a positive faculty collaborator and a willing mentor to new teachers, as well as being a trusted colleague and friend who continues to enrich our learning culture.

I am privileged to have the opportunity to work with Nancy and know she will be an asset to any instructional program or global endeavors.
