Recent graduate student in Spanish with 8 years of learning experience and traveling experience speaking the language in Ecuador, Spain, and the Dominican Republic

Methodology

I teach Spanish from a culture-based context. Language and culture are so inherently linked and learning about culture within the context of language is essential to gaining proficiency. I loved sharing my passion for language and culture with my students and helping them gain language skills while also learning about the culture!

Background

I am a recent graduate from UNCW and have been teaching for a year and tutoring for 4 years. I have gained fluency in Spanish after receiving my Masters in Spanish and traveling and living abroad for almost a year in 3 different Spanish-speaking countries!

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $25/h

Details

I am flexible on how much I charge and am willing to work with each student to get them where they need to be! Please contact me if you have issues with the price.
