    I thought it would be impossible to pass the ORELA Spanish teaching exam. Everyone I talked to said it took 3 to 5 attempts. I failed my first time and the test seemed even more difficult than ever. That's when I started do Skype lessons with Elizabeth...twice a week for about 5 weeks. She practiced with me on improving my performance in the speaking section and writing section. She is very encouraging and supportive which helped reduce my nervousness and increased my confidence. She helped me organize my Spanish responses practicing using higher level grammar with increased ease. Those practice sessions increased my speaking score from a 3 to a 7 out of 8 by the next test and I fully passed the test on this 2nd try. Thank you Elizabeth! My Spanish improved so quickly with you and I'm now a certified Spanish teacher! I couldn't have done it without you! ¡Muchas gracias!

    Elizabeth is very friendly and very helpful. She communicated with me quickly and efficiently prior to registering for her class. I am excited to start working with her.

About this pro

I make sure that every lesson is uniquely tailored you your needs. I have a wealth of grammar knowledge to offer, as well as a natural understanding and love of my native language. The most rewarding part of my lessons is when I see my students' eyes light up and I know that they have grasped a difficult concept and can now make sense of of it.

Q & A

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?
    I love learning languages just as much as I love teaching them. Language is an intriguing part of our existence, and involves an understanding not only of its culture, but of humanity itself. How our brains work, how expressions came to form, they are all colorful parts of our existence.
  • What types of customers have you worked with?
    Some of the most common requests I respond to include: Helping someone in their performance in a high school or university class. Learning Spanish for a specific career. Helping a student pass an important exam. Preparing someone for a business trip or vacation. Conversing with someone to help them gain confidence.
