To Whomever it may concern:
Currently, I'm a student at Wesleyan University. I am studying romance languages (Spanish and French) and Chemistry. I've had several years of experience tutoring various age groups and abilities. In general, I like to allow the family members or parents to govern how I help their child/sibling to best meet his/her needs. I am open to tutoring in several areas, but my strengths lie in Spanish, French, math (arithmetic - calculus AB), chemistry, and English grammar/handwriting. I try to introduce my tutees to various methods of learning. I, for instance, learn better when I write (and read as I write) information or participate in kinesthetic activities and do something with that information, such as saying it out loud (like explaining it to a friend). Such a learning/studying method could help one not only understand a concept better but also remember it for a test, for example. Thank you for taking time out of your day to consider me as potential tutor.
P.S. Because I don't have a car and because I don't have a driver's license, I wouldn't be able to travel more than 1 mile from the Wesleyan University campus to meet with someone for tutoring; however, I am more than willing to negotiate my hourly rate to compensate for the amount of money spent on transportation to and from Wesleyan University (i.e. $25/hour or $30/hour).
I took Calculus AB in high school and earned a 5 on the College Board AP examination.
I took AP Chemistry in high school and earned a 5 on the College Board examination.
I also tutored a high school student in Chemistry with Tutor Doctor, another tutoring company, before I started working for WyzAnt.
I have experience translating and interpreting. In the summer, I volunteer at a business in my hometown that primarily assists Spanish-speaking immigrants. I am also member of WesInterpreters, which is a group of students that translates and interprets for Connecticut Legal Services and New Horizons.
Additionally, I've been tutoring my peers in Spanish through the Dean's Office Peer Tutoring Program for two years now.
