Qualifications & Experience

Hola! Soy Veronica. Let me be your Spanish doctor for all of your Spanish ills! I received both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Spanish from UCLA, and my Ph.D. I completed (in Spanish and Latin American Literature/Studies) from Tulane University. After graduation, I worked at a number of private and public two and four year colleges, and I also taught AP Spanish to high school juniors and seniors who were permitted to enroll in freshman courses. A number of years ago, I returned to my native SoCal and took up a position as an adjunct professor in one of the leading community colleges, where I still am today. In addition to having taught all levels of Spanish (grammar, composition, conversation, civilization, film and literature), I have continued to tutor one-on-one to mostly high school and college students in the area. Many of these have improved substantially after having had sessions with me, of which I am very pleased. I hope that you will love learning Spanish with me as much as I love teaching it!

Veronica Burke taught Spanish to my 12 year old son last year. Veronica was flexible in scheduling and consistent in showing up. She was patient with my son, and offered him a structured beginners' approach, which was tailored to the pace he required. Veronica was able to incorporate both humor and discipline into the classes, as necessary. I feel that my son learnt a lot during his time taking Spanish with Veronica and recommend her for a tutoring position.
