EducationI am beginning my fifth year at Southern Utah University as a Biology and Spanish major, with a minor in Chemistry and Photography. I have completed both my Spanish major and my Photography minor. This will be my last year here at SUU.
ExperienceI have functionally native proficiency in Spanish with 4 years of tutoring experience at a university level. I have personally studied the language for more than 13 years now and I have 2+ years of immersion experience.
As of this year I am now studying Portuguese and Italian, utilizing the skills I have acquired over the years to be able to teach myself. I have general professional proficiency in Portuguese and elementary proficiency in Italian.
Learning a language can be fun and rewarding, but it can also be highly daunting at times. It is something that requires persistence and an enthusiastic attitude towards not only the language, but also the many cultures that use it.
What once started out as merely a requirement for school has now turned into a passion of mine. Languages give us the power to understand those that differ from ourselves and to see the world through new eyes.
If you have a desire to learn Spanish, I am here to help you understand and internalize the language.
HobbiesBesides language learning, I am a lover of the outdoors. If I don’t have to work or study, I can always be found outside camping, hiking, rock climbing, or jeeping.
I like to draw, paint, design, and photograph – the latter being my preference of art.
I enjoy those quiet moments when I can read, write, or just listen to music.
