I graduated summa cum laude in May 2006 with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and a minor in Political Science from the University of Oklahoma. In May 2012, I graduated with a dual master's degree from the University of Oklahoma, consisting of a Master of Arts in Spanish and a Master of Public Administration with a concentration in Non-Profit Management. From Fall 2009 through Fall 2012, I was a Graduate Teaching Assistant/Instructor in the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics at the University of Oklahoma, teaching introductory and intermediate Spanish courses (SPAN 1115, SPAN 1225, SPAN 2113). From Spring 2013 through Fall 2014, I taught elementary and intermediate Spanish courses at Arkansas State University in regular, accelerated, and honors formats in both face-to-face and web-assisted settings. I am currently working as a Life Skills Educator and Job Coach for the Center for a non-profit organization in Oklahoma City, OK.

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.

Career Development

I have work experience in a number of fields, including but not limited to customer service, sales, campaign and non-profit leadership and management, community outreach, fundraising, and general administration (private, public, and non-profit sectors). I have extensive experience in higher education, first as a student and later as an instructor and in administrative roles with the Lean Institute at OU and OU Housing and Food Services. During my five years of academic administration and teaching experience at the University of Oklahoma and Arkansas State University, I advised students with regard to schedule creation, general degree planning, Spanish minors/majors, and potential career paths. I am currently working as a Job Coach and Life Skills Educator in downtown Oklahoma City.

College Counseling

As an alumna of the University of Oklahoma, I am well-versed with the workings of higher education from the perspectives of a student (undergraduate and graduate levels), an administrator (administrative positions at the Lean Institute at OU and OU Housing and Food Services), and an instructor (Department of Modern Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics at OU and Department of World Languages and Cultures at Arkansas State University). In total, I have five years of academic administration and teaching experience at the university level. During my five years as a Spanish instructor, I advised students with regard to schedule creation (per semester and per year), general degree planning (what to take and when, prerequisites, summer course options, study abroad options, etc.), Spanish minors/majors (courses, hours needed, etc.), and potential career paths (specifically how Spanish might pair with or benefit other majors/minors, especially in science, business, education, and health).

English

I am a native speaker of English, and I hold two master's degrees, one in Public Administration and one in Spanish. I am well-versed in academic research and writing. I also have over five years of university-level teaching experience and extensive academic tutoring experience.

ESL/ESOL

My own foreign language experience means that I am well-versed in grammatical aspects of the English language. Moreover, I can help to explain English grammar and vocabulary more effectively to ESL students because of my extensive teaching background.

Additionally, as an undergraduate, I volunteered with OU's Center for English as a Second Language, where I took part in conversation groups with ESL students.

General Music

I began playing the cello in fifth grade and played regularly through high school. I was in the school orchestra (as well as its pit orchestra and chamber orchestra), Strolling Strings, and the Bartlesville Symphony Orchestra. I completed AP Music Theory during my junior year of high school and received a 3 on the AP test, which gave me credit for Music Theory for Non-Majors at OU. Additionally, I attended two summer music camps and a chamber music camp at the University of Arkansas, and I participated in Solo and Ensemble Contest (district, state), All-District, and All-State.

Government & Politics

I possess a Master of Public Administration with a concentration in Non-Profit Management as well as an undergraduate minor in Political Science. I have completed the following courses:

Undergraduate:
American Federal Government
Making Public Policy
Justice, Liberty, and the Good Society
U.S. Foreign Policy toward Islamic Nations
Generational Politics
Genocide and U.S. Response
American Political Parties

Graduate:
Foundations of Non-Profit Management
Government Internship
Public Budgeting and Finance
Public Financial Management
Analysis of Political and Administrative Data
Human Resource Administration
Public Policy and Inequality
Program Evaluation
Organizations: Design, Structure, Process
Federalism and Intergovernmental Relations
Research Problems

Grammar

I hold two master's degrees and am well-versed in academic writing, proofreading, and editing. I also have over five years of university-level teaching experience and extensive academic tutoring experience, especially in Spanish. I am adept at spelling, punctuation, grammar, and vocabulary in English and Spanish.

Italian

I have completed 13 hours of Italian at OU. I received A's in all coursework, and I have extensive knowledge of Spanish, which aids in my ability to tutor foreign languages.

Literature

I have a Master of Arts in Spanish with an emphasis on Hispanic literatures. I have completed graduate level courses in Spanish literature, Latin American literature, and Contemporary Literary Criticism.

Political Science

I have a Master of Public Administration with a minor in Non-Profit Management and an undergraduate minor in Political Science from the University of Oklahoma. I have completed a variety of coursework at the undergraduate and graduate levels in both Political Science and in Public Administration. Some courses include but are not limited to American Federal Government, Generational Politics, American Political Parties, Foundations of Non-Profit Management, Public Budgeting and Finance, Human Resource Administration, Program Evaluation, Public Policy and Inequality, and Federalism and Intergovernmental Relations.

Proofreading

Given my academic background and my teaching experience, I am a thorough and detail-oriented proofreader.

Reading

I worked for several summers as a volunteer with the Bartlesville Literacy Council's Summer Boost reading program for elementary school children. This, in addition to my years of foreign language teaching experience, makes me well-qualified for tutoring in reading in both English and Spanish.

Spanish

I graduated summa cum laude in May 2006 with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and a minor in Political Science from the University of Oklahoma. In May 2012, I graduated with a dual master's degree from the University of Oklahoma, consisting of a Master of Arts in Spanish and a Master of Public Administration with a concentration in Non-Profit Management. From Fall 2009 through Fall 2012, I was a Graduate Teaching Assistant/Instructor in the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics, teaching introductory and intermediate Spanish courses (SPAN 1115, SPAN 1225, SPAN 2113). More recently, I taught elementary and intermediate Spanish courses at Arkansas State University from Spring 2013 through Fall 2014.

Spelling

I hold two master's degrees and am well-versed in academic writing. I also have over five years of university-level teaching experience and extensive academic tutoring experience, especially in Spanish. I am adept at spelling in English, Spanish, and Italian.

TOEFL

I graduated summa cum laude in May 2006 with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and a minor in Political Science from the University of Oklahoma.

Writing

I possess a Master of Arts in Spanish and a Master of Public Administration. I have extensive graduate-level writing experience, and I completed theses for both of my master's degrees. I am well-versed in MLA, Chicago, APA, and APSA citation styles.
