French and Spanish Teacher/ Mentor
Karla received her Bachelor of Arts in Spanish at CSU Long Beach where she specialized in Spanish literature and also studied the French language. She is a native Spanish speaker and became fluent in French after years in the classroom. She later traveled to France and obtained real word fluency of the language. Throughout college she also began tutoring and that is where she found her passion for teaching. She gained experience working with both children and adults. Due to this 1 to 1 tutoring experience, she felt right at home at Fusion. Karla’s goal as a teacher is to have the enriching experience of helping her students communicate fluently in the target language and connect deeper with the different cultures that speak that language.
Karla was born and raised in the South Bay and has a passion for traveling. She especially loves traveling to France where first feel in love with the French language. Despite having visited other countries, however, Karla is a California girl at heart and loves going to the beach, discovering new restaurants, going to concerts and events, and doing all of the other things California has to offer.
