Lorraine Ramos is a Spanish teacher and Mentor who helps students learn language through an immersion conversation style program.
She earned a double B.A. in Spanish and Child Development at San Diego State University graduating Magna Cum Laude. Continuing at the same university, she studied Spanish Literature and Linguistics and graduated with a Masters in Arts while also obtaining a certificate in Translation and Interpretation: English/Spanish as well as TEFL/TESOL.
Lorraine taught Spanish 101 at SDSU to university students of diverse ethnic backgrounds across a broad age spectrum. She has a focus on Spanish as a Global language, a philosophy that was cultivated through training and traveling in multiple Latin and Hispanic countries such as Spain, Costa Rica and Puerto Rico.
Lorraine has interests in other cultures and languages as well. She loves to travel and only needs Antarctica to have visited each continent. While in the country, she searches for authentic ethnic restaurants and markets besides loving to go to farmers markets, fruit stands and street festivals.
While being a student of language, spelling has never been her strongest asset. She did win 3rd place in a 8th grade Spelling Bee (even though she got the practice word and the real word wrong) however, it turns out, there were only three participants!
