I am a Colombian-American native Spanish speaker with 10 years of experience tutoring Spanish from Beginner to Advanced Conversation level.

I have:
* 10 years of tutoring experience with dozens of satisfied clients.
*earned a 5/5 on the AP Spanish Exam.
*been inducted into the Sociedad Nacional Honoraria Hispanica - National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society
*earned the College Reading and Learning Association Tutor Certification in 2011.
* graduated from the State University of New York at New Paltz with a major in Latin American and Caribbean studies and a double minor in Spanish and German.
* a strong desire to help you excel in your Spanish speaking skills!

At the State University of New York at New Paltz, I tutored Spanish (from Elementary to Advanced Spanish literature course) for 4 years at the Tutoring Center.

I have helped many students (from different levels and ages) achieve academic success in their respective Spanish classes through fun, engaging and practical methods. I also know a plethora of useful resources for learning Spanish and make the sessions engaging, interesting and fun to learn. I also have experience providing one-on-one Spanish tutoring and I use a personalized comprehensive tutoring style to make sure every session is productive.

In 2014, I obtained my translation and interpretation certification through CUNY Hunter College. I provide freelance translations and interpretations and have extensive experience providing interpretation services at national and international events as well as translating press releases, questionnaires, testimonials, pamphlets and other documents.

Since I studied Spanish and German as a minor I understand first-hand the patience and methods involved in learning a new language. A student's success is my success. I have studied Portuguese and German for several years so I incorporate useful methods to learn languages quickly and effectively.

If you are looking for an experienced, patient, native Spanish speaker tutor, contact me today so you can learn Spanish fluently!
