With the right preparation, anyone can pass any test. What is Teacher Study Hall?

I was in your situation before. I needed to pass these difficult certification tests, but trying to study was a nightmare. I spent hours searching the internet for study material and found very little useful information.

The 'big box' exam tutoring sites had a one-size-fits-all approach that included dozens of different tests. It felt like they really didn't understand what I needed to learn. I labored to build my Spanish and educational knowledge little by little, failing exams multiple times, and the whole process felt stressful and overwhelming.

After refining my study plan over seven years and gathering folders full of links and information, I figured out what worked and what didn't, and developed an effective, streamlined process. I learned what, when, and how to study and as soon as I passed I wanted to share that information with as many people as I possibly could.

My goal is to help you through the process so you don't have to struggle like I did. Here is what I can offer you:

Test strategies proven to work

Know exactly how to prepare and what to expect on test day.

Effective, authentic materials

Learn from comprehensive study guides that build your skill so that you can test with confidence.

Personalized feedback

The best way to improve is to learn from your mistakes. I offer score analysis, study plans, feedback on speaking and writing tasks, workshops, and private tutoring.

Practice, practice, practice

You’ll find everything you need here, including interactive practice tasks, study sessions, workshops, and full-length practice exams.

Holistic approach

Success starts with your mindset, work space, study schedule, and performance under pressure. I’ll be there every step of the way to help you pass your certification exams.

Community and connection

You don’t have to do this alone. There are others just like you on this journey. You can meet them here, help each other, and celebrate together when you receive your passing score.

What are you waiting for? Start today!

3 Steps to Exam Success

The path to bilingual certification is challenging, but not impossible. To succeed, get focused and follow these three steps.

1. Prepare

Start with your mindset. Visualize yourself in detail receiving your passing score notification. Where are you? Who do you call first? Spend time every day believing in yourself and imagining your victory.

Create a dedicated study area and set aside time in your schedule for test prep. Take a practice test or examine your score reports to determine your strengths and weaknesses. Make a study plan that includes details about when and for how long you will study and what materials you will be using.

Click the button below to download a study plan template for the exam you’re working on.

2. Practice

This is where the hard work really begins. You’ll need to learn the test format and scoring inside out and strengthen your weakest domains. My weekend workshops and weekday practice sessions are perfectly designed to give you the practice you need along with the feedback that helps you improve.

You’ll practice authentic, original questions, build your academic Spanish and pedagogy, and sharpen your test-taking skills.

Feeling ready? Now it’s time to show off the skills you’ve worked so hard to build. By this point, you should take as many practice tests as you can find.
