I am Dwiveck, but you can call me Maria or Marie or anything else with which you can come up. I'm very interested in tutoring and/or teaching Italian or Spanish (language and/or literature). I would also enjoy tutoring English writing, grammar, or proofreading. If you're interested in learning any of these over the summer, I'm your person.
I have a B.A. in Magazine Journalism from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications (Syracuse University) with a minor in Italian (for which I studied abroad in Florence). In 2013, I finished my M.A. in Italian and Spanish literature from the University of Georgia. Furthermore, I am a native Spanish speaker (I lived in Puerto Rico until I was 18). I've been teaching Italian at the University of Georgia for two years and I taught a crash course in Spanish for elementary school teachers once. I have also been tutoring college students in Italian and Spanish several days a week for a little more than a year.
As a young professor who recently finished up school, I can offer the best of both worlds. I can offer the expertise (both in the subject and in education) that you look for in a tutor, but I also understand that it is summer and you want to study, but also have some time to have fun. I can help you with time management and my schedule is extremely flexible. I'm also willing to offer any kind of tutoring experience, whether you're taking a beginner's class and need some extra help, you've forgotten your Spanish and want a review, you need help studying Italian literature, or you want an intensive session because you know no Spanish and are leaving for Spain or Peru or Costa Rica in a couple of months.
If you think I might be able to help you, let me know. I'll gladly answer any questions and provide you with any proof of my expertise that you might want. I look forward to hearing from you, getting to know you, and helping you on the beautiful journey that is learning a language.
