Recent college grad with experience in Spanish conversation, literature, and Latin American culture

Methodology

My teaching approach is interactive. I want the people I am teaching to be engaged in what they are learning, and in order to do so, I encourage active participation. I am also a strong believer in making the learning process as applicable as possible to individual learning goals and circumstances.

Background

I am a recent graduate of Swarthmore College with a dual B.A. in Spanish and Anthropology. I am deeply interested in the intersections between humans and the world around them. Understanding how to communicate is central to existing in a social world.
