Hi. My name is Lauren and I recently graduated from Miami University in the summer of 2012. I have a bachelor's degree in Spanish and Latin American Studies from Miami. Over the course of my time at Miami I had the unique opportunity to continue crafting my Spanish via several trips abroad. In the summer of 2009, as a sophomore at Miami, I was able to participate in a teaching abroad workshop in Honduras. During one month over the summer, I was given the chance to develop my own curriculum materials in order to teach several groups of Spanish-speaking children English as a second language. Additionally, in the fall of 2010, while a junior at Miami, I had one of the greatest experiences of my life - studying abroad at Universidad Nacional in Heredia, Costa Rica. During this period I lived with a host family near the capital city of San Jose and went to school full time. That opportunity allowed me to experience many new sights and to broaden my global horizons even more. These are just two of the opportunities that I've had to truly work on developing my Spanish skills.

On an ESOL end, while at Miami, I also volunteered once a week for a couple of semesters at a local family resource center helping to co-teach an ESOL class for a group of about 10 English as a second language learners. This interesting experience allowed me to develop my communication skills and to begin to see English through the lens of others unaccustomed to the language.

As a tutor, I would be looking to meet the needs of both ESOL and Spanish language learners. As far as tutoring methods, I generally try to tailor teaching methods towards the overall learning needs and goals of each individual student. I tend to combine various different teaching styles (auditory, visual, kinesthetic, tactile etc.) so that each student is able to get their individual learning needs met. Generally speaking, what the student needs, the student gets. When in doubt, I like to ask each student his/her preferences concerning learning style and general curriculum materials. Input from the source is key to overall student success.

Thanks for taking the time to read and hopefully you'll contact me soon so we can start building a path towards success!

Approved subjects

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have had about two years' combined experience teaching students in an ESOL environment. I taught English to several groups of elementary Spanish-speaking students in Honduras and, more recently, through college, have co-taught a group of adults of various nationalities in an ESOL classroom. As an individual that has dedicated a large portion of my life to second language learning myself, I feel that I am especially well-attuned to the needs of individuals learning English for the first time.

Spanish

Spanish has truly been a lifelong passion of mine. I have studied Spanish formally throughout high school and continued that formal education through college, eventually earning a B.A. in Spanish and Latin American Studies from Miami University. Sharing my passion for the Spanish language and culture (in its various facets) is what I do best. I believe that my time spent abroad in both Honduras and Costa Rica, combined with my experience tutoring English students in Spanish during my college years has really prepared me well for this role of an experienced, dedicated, PASSIONATE Spanish tutor. I want my students to not only meet but also succeed their own expectations regarding language learning and I believe that I have the right tools to make that goal a reality.
