I have played competitive basketball from junior high school to Division III College and have experience coaching teams in youth leagues (YMCA, PAL), as well as coaching individuals who want to improve their game. During my time playing in college, I was HVAC All Conference Team and won the "Coach's Award."
Whether playing competitively or just for fun, having the proper fundamentals (footwork, form, spacing) will help maximize your talent and/or strengths, so you can get to the hoop.
I have worked for around 10 years with students who are looking to improve their English at all levels, from complete beginners to college students, and working adults as well. Spanish is my first language, so that proves to be an advantage when tutoring native Spanish speakers who want to learn English, as most of my experience is with native Spanish speakers who want to learn English, as well as with Korean students. I have worked both on my own as a freelance tutor and as a part-time tutor for Bloomfield College in New Jersey tutoring ESL, English, Composition, and academic writing.
Spanish was my first language, but having been educated in public schools here in the U.S., I grew up essentially speaking both. Spanish at home and English everywhere else.
I also studied Spanish at the University of North Texas, with an emphasis on Latin American Literature, and am frequently in Latin America on trips visiting family or vacation. So I would also say that my Spanish is pretty current.
