I am a college graduate that loves to teach others Spanish. Helping others in their language learning process is not only rewarding for me but accelerates the student's progress too. I have the most experience teaching/helping beginner and intermediate level Spanish students.
I am a Spanish native speaker and have a bachelor degree in Spanish. I tutored one on one students in college and small group sessions too. I also helped fourth-graders at a bilingual Spanish/English elementary school for a quarter.
