IVY-LEAGUE UNIVERSITY SPANISH PROFESSOR TO TUTOR ALL AGES

Silvia
£45 per hour
(1)

I am a University-level Spanish Professor. I hold a Doctorate by the University of Barcelona and Duke University in Teaching Spanish as a Second Language, and two master's, one in Spanish creative writing by the University Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, Spain), and another in Second Language Acquisition (University of Barcelona, Spain)

I enjoy working with students of all ages! I teach AP Spanish, and all levels of Spanish Language and Literature courses. I have been teaching for 10 years, the last three at Duke University, and three as an independent tutor, with two more while at Duke University.



Tutoring / Teaching Experience

As a Tutor, I taught Spanish at elementary level (immersion programs) for Math, Science, and Reading; College level Spanish Literature, Language, and Composition (also publishing in peer-reviewed journals), Spanish for Heritage Speakers, and for non-natives. I do use a variety of methods, hands-on, demonstration, technology enhanced, visual aids, oral input, small group practices, etc. I do encourage learner's autonomy, and have helped improve one letter grade minimum to students not already in A level.
Rates are affordable, offer discounts depending of number of hours contracted per week.

Tutoring experience:12 years

I was a student of Silvia's for several years. She is an excellent teacher, of the highest calibre. Her Spanish is impeccable but her added gift is the addition of her literary, cultural, and historical knowledge of Spain that makes her classes so interesting. She helped me progress significantly with my Spanish.
