I believe the largest part of being a tutor is maintaining patience with my students. From past experience, I understand that people learn in different ways. Often, classroom teachers do not have the time to individually help each student, so I see myself as the main back-up that my students can rely upon. I will calmly explain anything they do not comprehend and will answer all questions.
I have been to many parts of the world. My father was in the Navy, so, as a child, I lived in several foreign countries. I enjoy traveling and learning about other peoples and their cultures.
I can read, speak, and write Spanish as well as I do in English and I have been very well educated in the English language.
I like to help people better themselves. I never forget those ah-hah moments when my students are able to grasp a concept that has been alluding them and their eyes light up and a beautiful smile spreads across their face.
