I started teaching and tutoring while serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in rural Paraguay where I taught everything from Environmental Conservation to Computer Literacy. During school vacations, I tutored interested students in English both as individuals and in groups, as well as helped struggling students get up to grade-level in subjects such as Math and Science. Because of my experience teaching in the Peace Corps, I will very soon be receiving a preliminary California Teaching Credential and plan to teach full-time in the next couple of years.
At Bowdoin College in Maine, I double majored in Biology and Environmental Studies, as well as in Spanish. I have been a passionate environmentalist for as long as I can remember and it was a thrill to get to learn more about the ecosystems of Coastal Maine as I earned my science major. My second major, Spanish, was a great basis to have for when I studied abroad in Ecuador for 7 months, and then lived in Paraguay for over 2 years. I am a native English speaker but also speak fluently in Spanish. I have experience tutoring both English to Spanish-speakers as well as Spanish to English-speakers. I have been volunteering as a tutor teaching English to Spanish-speaking adults for the last year.
I provide positive encouragement and helpful instruction, and love getting to interact with students while teaching subjects I'm passionate about. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you!
