First, I absolutely love my job, and I am 110% dedicated to your success. I wake up in the morning excited to teach my students! I hope my passion for teaching and learning will always be obvious in our classes.
MY TEACHING STYLE
I will work hard for you. I will create a specified plan for your style of learning, but I will push you to do achieve as much as you wish to achieve. I have high expectations, but I know that everyone progresses at a different pace. I truly enjoy helping you reach your goals: editing
an essay for college, learning Spanish
, learning English
, preparing for the SAT
, and more. I make sure the time we spend in class is effective and organized. There is a specific goal for each lesson and we will achieve that goal.
ENGLISH / SPANISH
I am in love with languages and how to learn them effectively. I am constantly trying new ways to develop learning materials with games, activities, listening exercises and worksheets, and I spend my weekends browsing bookstores, websites, and talking to other language
teachers about the best ways to teach languages. I live for it. I am currently learning Japanese
. That being said, I have a very acute knowledge of how languages are best learned or how to help you pass a difficult language class. I make class fun and effective, filled with high energy and zeal. My level of grammar
and syntax are at a very high level from over 15 years of learning foreign languages.
I have taught English As A Second Language
and Spanish with American Airlines, Samsung, Hitachi, Ferrovial, LBJ Express, ATESVI, and many more.
English Writing and Literature
I have a degree in English Literature from Boston University. I was accepted into a study abroad program in Madrid, Spain, where I studied history
and literature in Spanish. I also studied in Guadalajara, Mexico, where I got my English As A Second Language certificate. After that I taught English to children, teens and adults in Campeche, Mexico. I also opened my own English tutoring school in Campeche. Before my career as a teacher began I wrote for the Boston Phoenix newspaper and Stuff at Night Magazine in Boston, Massachusetts. So, I have been a writer and an editor
in many respects. I am currently taking a poetry class as well. I know how to write an exciting college essay
or paper, as well as check for grammar mistakes. It comes as second nature to me, and I always find the mistakes in New York Times Best Sellers every single week. My eyes are just attuned to finding mistakes, just as much as I am attuned to breathing.
Writing: Essays, Cover Letters, and More
Writing and writing well is an essential part of life, whether you are an engineer, scientist, math
major or doctor. It is important to be able to express yourself well through words, explain your side of the story, your argument, and defend yourself intellectually using the correct words and grammar. I can help you write a cover letter, college essay, and more. I will show you how to write an exciting college essay that will catch the eye of the reader or write a cover letter that will grab the attention of the HR department.
SAT/ACT Test Prep: after 25 students, all have improved their ACT/SAT scores, including their essay scores.
I am a dynamic, driven and determined tutor, not to mention fun. Whether you need to pass a particularly difficult exam or you want to learn or improve English or Spanish, we will work together to succeed.
