ExperienceI lived and worked in Oaxaca, Mexico for 5 weeks studying woodcarving with master artisans. I tutored Spanish to high school students at Allderdice High School as a Teaching Assistant. I've worked with native Spanish-speaking children on maintaining proficiency in the language. I studied Spanish language and literature at the Universitat de Valencia in Valencia, Spain for 5 months. In September 2010, I published a graphic novel in Spanish about my experiences abroad. AP Spanish score: 5/5. SAT II Spanish score: 690. I am a member of Phi Sigma Iota Honors Society for Modern Languages and took several advanced-level language and literature courses in Spanish at the university level. I am fluent in Spanish, and enjoy working with students at all levels and sharing my passion for the Spanish language and its culture.
HobbiesI love to draw, paint, and sculpt ceramics, I make comics, I enjoy Latin music, Mexican folk art, cooking Mexican food, and attending art and cultural events in the community.
Client Reviews (1)
She is VERY good and admittedly inexperienced. She has managed to get my daughter excited and motivated such that she is studying Spanish late at night in bed. Lizzee is learning quickly how to meet the needs of someone this age (11) who knows so little Spanish. I am very encouraged and would recommend her to anyone. The 4 is from lack of experience with this age.
