I have a strong educational background in my subject areas and over 40 years’ experience as a teacher of English, Spanish, and Linguistics. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Spanish and English, a Master’s degree in Linguistics with Specializations in Spanish Linguistics and teaching English as a Second Language, and a Ph.D. in Educational Linguistics, which is the study of how to apply linguistics to the teaching of languages.

I started tutoring English composition as an undergraduate student. Later, as a graduate student, I taught courses in English composition and linguistics at the University of New Mexico, where I was studying. I also taught adult ESL at a community college. When I completed my Ph.D. in Educational Linguistics, I became a professor of students who were preparing to teach English as a Second Language.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Spanish and also studied Spanish linguistics as part of my Master’s degree. I first started studying Spanish in high school and moved to New Mexico so I could be in an area where Spanish is spoken. Since then, I have become very fluent in Spanish by being able to speak it here in New Mexico, and in my travels to several Spanish-speaking countries. Because I studied Spanish, I know a lot about its grammar and vocabulary, and because I am a good speaker of Spanish, I can help with speaking and pronunciation.
