SPANISH TUTORING PROGRAM
We are here to support your positive and successful experience in Spanish!
Tutoring sessions are intended for 100 and 200 level language students and offer a low-anxiety environment in which to ask questions, prepare for exams and discuss concerns one-on-one with a peer tutor.
All you have to do is contact one of our collaborating tutors to set up an appointment (see below).
The fine print: Please be aware that tutors cannot help you write your compositions, as receiving help from a more advanced student for written work constitutes a violation of the college's honor code.

“¡Hola! My name is Vicente Brambila, and I am a Joint Economics-Government major with a minor in Spanish. As a native speaker, Spanish has always been an active language in my life. At Franklin and Marshall College, I have completed multiple literature and culture courses from “hispanic-landia.” With this in mind, my experience as a native-speaker extends my abilities with the language, which have broadened even more at Franklin and Marshall College. As a spanish minor I traveled to Madrid, Spain with the Spanish department where we studied multiple aspects de la literatura y cultura españolas with a focus on the city of Madrid. I can offer anything from grammar tutoring to something as simple as a spanish conversation that can benefit to your verbal skills. As much excitement as I have to help, I am also excited to learn from you. Spanish is a language I use daily, and I now want to challenge my abilities by answering questions tutees may have regarding the language.
“¡Hola! Mi nombre es Vicente Brambila, y mi especialidad en Franklin and Marshall College es un Joint Major en Economics-Government y una subespecialidad en español. Como hispanohablante de herencia, el español siempre ha sido parte de mi vida. En la universidad, me he matriculado en múltiples cursos de literatura y cultura de “hispanolandia.” Mi experiencia con el español es compleja en casa, como lo es en clase. Como Spanish minor he viajado a España con el departamento de español donde estudiamos ciertos rasgos de la literatura y cultura española con un enfoque en la ciudad de Madrid. Yo puedo ofrecer tutoría en cuestiones de gramática o simplemente una charla en español para la práctica verbal. Con la emoción de ayudar, también viene la emoción de aprender de los mismos estudiantes. El español ha sido un aspecto cotidiano en mi vida, y me quiero retar con las preguntas que tengan ustedes sobre la lengua.
¡Hola! My name is Eliot List and I am a current senior at F&M, with a Joint major in Spanish and International Studies. I began studying Spanish in elementary school, and the language has been a very important part of my educational career ever since. I have spent two semesters abroad, one in high school in Liberia, Costa Rica and the second during the fall of my junior year in Santiago, Chile. Learning Spanish is of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had and it can definitely be a challenge, but don't feel like you are alone! I am happy to help with any questions or difficulties you are having with the language, from grammar and pronunciation, to questions about study abroad and culture.
