I combine different listening, speaking, and writing exercises based on the student’s goals. In my classes, I recreate real-life situations to support my students in developing the skills to speak the language with confidence and clarity. My classes are interactive and adapted to fit the needs of each student.
Currently, I am completing a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership at WMU. Furthermore, I have experience working with different age groups as a private Spanish tutor. In addition, I also have experience working as an elementary math teacher and private tutor.

Being a fluent and native Spanish speaker—as well as an exceptional educator—gives Lourdes more knowledge and familiarity on how to personalize lessons for all of her students to fit their needs. She is very enthusiastic and genuine, which makes her a phenomenal teacher and all around person. Lourdes is very caring, open, and sincere when forming relationships with everyone she meets. She is dedicated to everything she does, especially when forming lesson plans, and she will spend as much time as needed when it comes to her work to ensure everyone involved is gaining more than the fundamentals. I highly recommend Lourdes to any person looking to learn and grow their Spanish speaking skills. Whether you are learning for work, a class, or as a new hobby, Lourdes will make certain to achieve those goals and more.
Lourdes is both fun and a great teacher! Spanish is full of difficult verb tenses but she makes it so easy to understand and practice! Gracias Lourdes por ayudarme a aprender español!
