Tutoring in Spanish and Spanish Language Coffee Hour


Hi everyone! My name is Melanie Ortiz, and I am currently a junior here at Rockford University studying Nursing and Spanish. I graduated from Jefferson High School and, gratefully, I was able to be a school ambassador, in the Top 10 graduates, have Honor Roll consecutively all four years, and become a Rockford Promise Scholar.

Now that I am a junior, I am thankful for all of the resources that have helped me throughout the years and am now thankful that as a tutor / assistant I am able to help others.

That said, please feel free to contact me for any help you may need, and also for a fellow classmate and friend. I look forward to working with all of you!
