"Hola yo me llamo Patricia! I grew up in the city of Bogota, Colombia and have now been in Georgia for 20 years. I currently live with my family including two dogs and a cat. I enjoy hiking, cooking, swimming and traveling and meeting new people. Back in Colombia, I studied dentistry and once I graduated, I taught dentistry courses to college students. I realized I enjoyed teaching students because I got to participate in their advancement and help them understand the various concepts.

In 2013, I earned a position at the University of Georgia teaching college Spanish. Since then, I have taught beginning, intermediate and medical Spanish to a variety of undergraduate students, and I've enjoyed teaching motivated and enthusiastic students these past years. Additionally, I've tutored an array of high school and college students learning Spanish who want to further develop their language skills and I have also participated in the AP Spanish Exam grading program twice.

After years of practice and experience, I am familiar in the most productive methods to learn the language and how to best help students. With my experience, I am able to tutor at any level in small groups or individually.
