Spanish

Graduated with Communications degree in 2015 with a focus in Spanish Linguistics. During my studies, I gained unique experience with learning a foreign language. I lived abroad in South America, volunteered as a Spanish/English interpreter for local schools' parent-teacher conferences, and created an online platform for language exchange partners. I've since then created my own personalized Spanish lessons for one-on-one language instructing. I've been conducting these lessons since 2015 for over 20+ Spanish students. I have a unique approach that incorporates lots of conversation/speaking, grammar acquisition, and listening comprehension. Plus, they're fun! Learn with me, a patient, fun, instructor, and you will enjoy the language journey!


Sign Language

After studying ASL for a year in college under Deaf professors, my job led me to interact on a daily basis with Deaf students and people a part of the community. There, I was able to practice and continue learning. I began giving lessons in 2010, took a break, and then now since 2016 have been conducting one-on-one ASL lessons to over 20+ students. In my lessons, I emphasize conversation, Deaf culture, and lots of hands on learning. We learn new vocab, and immediately use it to converse, tell stories, ask each other questions, etc. The vocabulary is in categories that are most prevalent in daily speech. However, if there is a specific topic of interest for you, I can tailor the lessons to meet your desired needs. Looking forward to working with you!
