Although, I do not have a degree in teaching, I have a passion for students and helping them to achieve their goals whether it be athletically or academically. My mother is a teacher, so my passion for helping students is in my DNA. For the last 3 years, I have worked with a publishing company, helping various schools and students create their yearbooks. I was a Spanish major at Arizona State, and I am fluent in reading, writing and speaking Spanish. I lived in Mexico City for a couple of years, and I have traveled to various Spanish speaking countries. Not to mention, I lived in Miami for 8 years, where Spanish is the first language.
I have tutored in Spanish and study/organizational skills. I am very organized and feel it's imperative for my students to be as well for success. My tutoring goes beyond the time I spend with you or your child. Prior to tests or quizzes, I create a quiz and email it my students the night before their test or quiz. I like to come prepared to our working sessions with extra exercises, for I feel the more practice the better. I have often times found that the text and workbook are not enough to truly grasp some of the grammar you or your child are learning.
Proofreading is something that I have had to do a lot of over the last 3 years regarding yearbooks. So tutoring in English, in terms of writing and grammar, is another strength of mine.
I look forward to working with you!
