I enjoy helping students achieve their language goals while motivating them. I try to encourage students to speak Spanish from session number one and, of course, there are no wrong answers! I've been teaching Spanish for foreigners for more than 8 years and I love it!

MA in Spanish
I enjoy helping students understand challenging topics, including Spanish. My goal is to get students who have been tentative about Spanish to challenge themselves, and not to shy away from it. I fondly remember helping a struggling student improve their grades, alleviate test anxiety, and get into all of their desired high schools.

BS in Chemical Physics
I enjoy getting to know my students and figuring out their strengths and weaknesses so I can help them get the most out of our sessions. I try to pique students' interest in writing by connecting it to their hobbies. I’ve helped a student increase her grade in English from 75% to 95%, while helping college students raise their grades on papers by 10%.

BA in Spanish
They assess learning focus and goals
At the first tutoring session, our Spanish Gooroo tutors will ask the student about what they would like to focus on and achieve through learning Spanish. Then, the Gooroo tutor will administer a short written and verbal exercise to determine the student’s Spanish level (only applicable to those with previous Spanish experience). Through this assessment, the tutor will be able to personalize lessons and homework for this specific student.
They adapt and personalize based on the student’s interests
Our Gooroo tutors make learning enjoyable and effective by adapting based on the student’s context and interests. For example, some students want to spend their sessions chatting in Spanish with their Gooroo tutor, to improve their speaking and listening skills. In that case, the tutor would prepare exercises for a chat that’s related to a topic that the student is interested in, and use the chat to introduce new grammatical ideas and explain them to the student.
They make learning fun
Our Gooroo tutors have all sorts of study tips for students. For example, for students that might be working and might not have a ton of time, one of our Spanish tutors recommend watching movies and TV in Spanish on Netflix, because students can not only hear Spanish, but see the associated facial expressions and movements. She selects the ones she likes the most and shares it with her students. If the student is a beginner, they can turn on English subtitles and follow along. For higher level students, they can watch with Spanish ones. Youtube videos are also useful! In addition to video content, she also recommends Spanish newspapers and children’s books.

Gooroo has cared about the success of my child every step of the way—from ordinary test prep to the more challenging time of helping him catch up with schoolwork after suffering concussions. Gooroo cares and wants their students to succeed. Gooroo is a first rate test prep and tutoring company, but they have the time to personalize and care deeply about each student, always going the extra mile. They’re the kind of people you want educating your child.
