EducationBA graduate from Gustavus Adolphus College in Spanish and Sociology/Anthropology; Certified as Secondary Teacher in Minnesota and Illinois in the area of Spanish
ExperienceSpanish has been a part of my life for 35 years,and as a result I am bilingual in English and Spanish. I have studied it, lived it and taught it. I majored in Spanish and lived in Spain for one year as a student. I lived in Honduras for almost 2 years as a missionary and have traveled and lived, for educational purposes, in Mexico, Colombia, Peru, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. I also directed a lay missionary program which oversaw missions in Mexico, Guatemala and Peru, and I frequently traveled to these sites.
I have taught Spanish at the Middle and High School levels, as well as, have taught Adult Community Ed. classes. Spanish and the culture that surrounds it are very much a part of who I am and they are something that I love to share with others. I also love to help others learn the language because I feel that in the world we live in today it is very important to know more than one language.
HobbiesI love the outdoors, biking, hiking, camping; love to dance, exercise, crochet, spend time with my children (ages 8 and 15), read, play the guitar,listen to a variety of music

Gloria has been wonderful with my son. He has learned so much since she started working with him. She's very reliable and flexible. She obviously has a lot of experience teaching and enjoys her work. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a Spanish tutor.
