"I began my studies in the field of Human Development at Wheelock College in Boston, Massachusetts. I continued my studies in education at the School for International Training in Vermont, at the High-Scope Educational Research Foundation in Michigan, and at Pacific Oaks College in California. Most recently, I became a certified Spanish teacher after many years as a private English tutor in Buenos Aires, Argentina. And I received my Masters Degree in TESOL and Bilingual Education in 2006.

I have worked with students of all ages. As a bilingual transition teacher in the Windham School District, I worked with small groups of English Language Learners (ELLs) K-4. I also worked in Spanish with small groups of native Spanish speakers as well as Spanish Language Learners (SLLs) K-4 in Windham’s Dual Language Companeros Program. I have experience teaching adolescents and I also have four children who once were adolescents. My experience as a tutor in Argentina was primarily with adolescents and adults.

I enjoy identifying and using a broad range of materials that facilitate the learning of the students that I teach. I am familiar with many of the textbooks that are being used to teach Spanish and I have a general sense of the materials that are being used to teach English as a Second Language. I have received training in strategies that help learners of all ages to understand the different types of reading that they do in the classroom (narrative vs expository)and I understand the importance of building vocabulary at all levels of study.

When I first meet a student, I like to find out what materials s/he is being taught with and the subject areas that the student is weak in or is struggling with. Then, I think about how much time the student and I will have together to strengthen the student’s knowledge so that s/he will successfully bring his/her grades up in the subject areas identified. After that, I create a plan with the student that focuses on the work that I as a tutor and s/he as the student need to" less...
