I started tutoring when I was still in high school, and I have a total of over six years of experience tutoring. I have tutored mostly in math and literature and have given piano lessons off and on for five years, but I can also tutor chemistry and Spanish. I am fluent in Spanish, in fact, and lived in Mexico for a year and a half. I have worked professionally as a translator and interpreter for almost three years and also have extensive experience in editing and proofreading.
I believe that any student is capable of learning material if they can learn to find the material interesting. I strive to show practical application of whatever material I am teaching and make learning fun. I also firmly believe that laughing increases learning and that students learn more effectively when they see how the material relates to something they enjoy.
Aside from teaching and translating, I enjoy writing and have had both poems and a short story published. I spend a lot of time at my piano and also play violin, French horn, trumpet, and guitar. Other interests of mine include hiking and dancing.
