Hi! I have tutored 4th graders through Americorp in Language arts, math, spelling, and reading. I'm trilingual in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. I just finished tutoring an adult who wanted to learn Brazilian Portuguese. I also tutored a student on an English essay format paper. I enjoy teaching hands-on activities. I like to garden, spend time teaching children to swim and water safety. I believe patience with students and helping them understand subjects to their ability is important. Problem solving is the key to helping them achieve understanding.
