Bachelors Degree in Information Systems from University of Texas at San Antonio. Graduated December 2009
ExperienceMy education started in Mexico where I studied until my first semester of high School at Preparatoria #24 in Anáhuac, Nuevo Léon. When I was 15 I came to the United States to continue my education in Victoria, TX where I Attendted Stroman High School for my Sophomore year. For my Junior year I went to Moody High School in Corpus Christi, TX and completed my public high school career. I began looking for alternative options and I decided to joined the Laredo Job Corps Center (LJC) where I finished with a Basic Business Training certification. While at LJC I was able to get my GED in 1998 and in the same year I registered at Laredo Community College. By 2001 I had finished all the core curriculum and I was able to transfer to the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA). In December 2003 I graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Spanish and then in 2008 I decided to go back to UTSA and finish my second bachelors degree in Information Systems and graduated in December 2009. From 2004 to 2005 I enrolled in the Masters program for Spanish Literature but never got the opportunity to finish.
I started UTSA in August 2001 and completed my Spanish Bachelors Degree in December 2003 with 3.0 GPA.
On January of 2004, I started with my Masters in Spanish Literature and while in graduate school, I found a job opportunity with a Spanish newspaper which at the time was named RUMBO. I worked there as a production manager and backup IT specialist for 3 years until a new opportunity arrived.
In Summer 2008 I decided to finish with my second Bachelors Degree in Information Systems. I enrolled in school full time and I was able to graduate in December 09.
I have worked as a Spanish tutor and essay translator: from speeches sourced from the University of Texas at Austin for a presentation in Mexico City (in the Universidad Autónoma de México) to Medical documents and presentations for private organizations
HobbiesI like to watch movies, travel anywhere with no plans head. I would love to learn how to take better photos. I also like interior design, currently we are remodeling our new house where we make custom concrete countertops and other pieces ourselves. I also enjoy board games and any type of puzzel.

Edith is a great tutor! I was having a very hard time in Spanish II and with her help I improved my grade dramatically. She was always very accommodating and willing to go at any pace necessary in order to make certain I really retained the information. I would highly recommend.
Edith is good hearted and tried but guess am really more advanced then she expected and prolly have a different learning style then what we where doing but all will work out im sure we will find the corret Student/teacher for the both of us.
Professora Edith is very articulate, knowledgable and reliable. She is an excellent Spanish teacher! I'd love to take more classes with her again.
Luckily, I've taken 3 parts of Spanish classes with Edith and have found her to be very prepared, knowledgable, cordial and professional as a teacher. I can totally see myself taking more classes with her; and as a matter of fact, will look to take more classes with her! It's been well worth my time and will be very helpful in my personal life and at work!!! Thank you, Edith. You're the best! =)
Edith is awesome! I have been working with her one-on-one to help improve my Spanish skills as a teacher. She's very patient and helps build confidence in speaking, writing and reading in Spanish. I was skeptical of this website at first, but I am so happy I found her! She works hard and I would recommend her to anyone!
I enjoy Edith's method of teaching, at the end of a session or lesson she makes sure we all understand or have any questions in order to continue to the next chapter. She is very knowledgable, patient (especially with me) & intelligent. I hope she will continue teaching for she is the best!!!! :-)
Edith was very knowledgeable about the material she was teaching (Spanish Grammar. Her explanations were very clear. She had great consideration for her students. She always asked if the material or explanation was clear. If not, she did her best to make it "claro". She is a great asset to your organization, value her worth. Gloria
Edith is an excellent Spanish tutor and helped our 7th grader pull his grade up from an F to a B! She's friendly, punctual and flexible schedule-wise. Her fees are also quite reasonable and in line with other tutors we've hired. We highly recommend her!
Edith is sweet, marvelous and truly outstanding!! My son, Evan, adores her--and is finally passing Spanish!! I highly recommend her.
Edith is an amazing tutor!! She is flexible and will work with your schedule. She sat with me for 2 and a half hours helping me prepare a project, going over how to present it, and even what I can fall back on if I forget my words (which we all know happens when trying to say what you want to say in Spanish when your first language is english). Also, when I need immediate help, I can send her what I am working on via a screen capture and she will walk me through it. I wouldn't pick anyone else.... she is the reason I have an "A" in my class.
We are a national training company and hired Edith to conduct Spanish Grammar courses for us for one of our clients in the San Antonio area. Over the last several months she has been instructing 11 students in improving their use and command of the Spanish language. Edith has done an excellent job and the students have learned a great deal from her and have given her excellent reviews. The management has noticed improved proficiencies in those employees that have taken the courses. She has done so well the students requested an extended Part II course that she is currently instructing. The rumor of her success with the students has circulated among other sites in various parts of the country that are now requesting similar courses. I recommend Edith in the highest respect. Working with her has been excellent. As a distant manager I depend on reliable and dependable instructors and Edith has been that and more. Her follow through and attention to detail is second to none. Thank you Edith! Mitch G TSG / Director of Training Services
What a sweet woman! Very helpful to my 13 year old daughter, who had been lost in Spanish class until working with Edith. She is very knowledgeable, always on-time and flexible with meeting times. Thank you, my dear!
Edith is an excellent tutor!!! She helped me with translations and to study for my spanish test. She was always prepared, and ready to go on time. It amazed me how at times she could change things up in spanish to meet my needs. Her fluency in spanish really made things easier for me to comprehend the language. There were a couple of times I had to reschedule. She was so accommodating and understanding about my situation. If you are looking for a great spanish tutor look no further. I also have to mention I passed my spanish test. Thanks Edith!!
Edith is an excellent Spanish tutor! She comes prepared with effective exercises that keep your attention in both a challenging and relaxed environment. Her rates are extremely reasonable, making it possible to take more than one class a week. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to learn Spanish, improve their skills, or get help in specific areas of this language.
Edith is awesome. I am glad I found her. She has been Alysa's tutor for almost a year. She is wonderful with Alysa. My daughter is 6 years old and Edith makes tutoring fun for her. Edith is on time all the time. She gives advance notice if she is unable to meet with Alysa. Alysa really enjoys every session with Edith. I would highly recommend Edith to anyone looking for a Spanish tutor.
Edith is AWESOME!!! She is so friendly and so helpfull! Her rates are fair because she gives top quality help and she rarely, RARELY has to cancel or re-scedule an appointment. I was as dumb as a sac of hammers when it came to spanish but thanks to Edith, im no longer clueless to spanish!
Edith was Awesome! She got back to me quickly and we were able to work out a schedule to meet regularly. She also is very knowledgeable!!
