I am currently a Spanish/ELD(ESL) teacher in the Capistrano Unified School District. I earned a Master's Degree in Bilingual Education from Columbia University in New York and an undergraduate degree in Spanish from Boston College. I also studied at the Universidad Complutense in Madrid, Spain and worked and taught in Bolivia while serving in the Peace Corps.

...One of my students even raised her SAT II Spanish Subject Test score from a 450 to a 700! Now that's improvement! My priority with private students is to quickly assess and focus on areas of need, while making content more understandable, accessible and enjoyable.

...I like my students to have a positive experience learning Spanish, and in my class there are songs, games, crafts, etc. All of them age appropriate. One of the first things that I work on is in teaching the students to let go the fear of speaking in another language.
