31 year veteran Spanish teacher tailor makes lessons for you in Macomb and Oakland Counties

Methodology

M.A. in Spanish Language, Literature and Culture from Wayne State University 1993
Universidad Complutense de Madrid 1992 finished coursework for M.A. from W.S.U.
B.A. from Eastern Michigan University with major in Spanish language and minor in French language

I will make personal lessons for you to help you reach your Spanish expression goals. I employ a wide array of lessons that take you from comprehension to expression (passive to active).

Background

I studied in Spanish on two separate occasions (one was a homestay with a Spanish family) and have traveled to Cuba, Peru, Mexico and Costa Rica to immerse myself in Hispanic culture. I have taught high school and middle school Spanish for 31 years. I have taught thousands of students exploratory and beginning Spanish level I to AP (Advanced Placement for college credit). Many of my students have received college credit from taking the AP test as high school seniors. I also have many former students who are now Spanish teachers all over the country.
