My name is Jane and I love Spanish, writing and history! I hold a B.A. from American University in History and Spanish 2006 and a Certificate of Translation from American University 2011. While in college I studied abroad at the University of Granada in Spain for six months and volunteered at a bi-lingual preschool in Washington, D.C. for a year.
Immediately upon graduation I joined the U.S. Army as an active duty Second Lieutenant in the Corps of Engineers. Between 2006-2010 I was stationed in Korea, Iraq and Louisiana, and currently serve as a Reservist in a Civil Affairs unit out of Rhode Island. My time in the Army taught me that hard work, respect and integrity go a long way; all are values I seek to instill in my students through tutoring.
Since I left the Army I have worked as a legal assistant, where I had the unique opportunity to hone my Spanish skills with translating some of the firm's documents from English to Spanish and working on Spanish-speaking domestic and civil cases, and currently am a Business Development Manager.
I aspire to remain patient, professional, and personal during times of instruction, and develop short-term and long-term strategies for success that suit each students lifestyle. In addition to utilizing designated curriculum resources, I provide outside resources of various platforms that will provide assistance and practice outside of our tutoring sessions.
I have worked with students who are learning English as their second language. I have experience with students from Preschool through 12th grade.
My goal is to be open and honest regarding my strengths, weaknesses, and capabilities. Thus, feel free to make a request for assistance not explicitly indicated in my profile, and I will let you know whether the task falls within my abilities.
I am enthusiastic, friendly and committed to my students. I am happy to help with test preparation, homework, specific projects, or just general subject knowledge. Please get in touch to discuss your specific needs and requirements.
Thank you for considering me as a tutor for you or your loved ones!
