Trinity College of Florida (Counseling)
I am a natural teacher with a passion for helping others to succeed academically. My style of tutoring combines time-honored learning techniques with modern technology and methodologies. Since each individual learns differently, my approach varies slightly with each student. I love to identify the difficulties a student is having and to develop an approach that builds that weakness into a strength!
The proof of my techniques lies in the long-term success of my students. Two of my Spanish students began our sessions totally lost, confused and discouraged. A few months later, they are both at the top of their Spanish classes, sometimes even explaining concepts to the other students!
While Spanish grammar is my specialty, I also tutor reading (both phonics and comprehension), literature, college-level writing and statistics. I have worked with students from pre-school through adult and am comfortable with any age-range.
I initially began tutoring as a way to earn an income during college and eventually earned a Bachelor's of Science degree in counseling. After graduating, I realized that my true passion is for teaching, so I made the choice to make my tutoring business into my primary career. I currently conduct sessions both on-line and in person. I generally prefer to meet in public places, but occasionally travel to student homes as well. I am a natural teacher with a passion for helping others to succeed academically.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
