I have been tutoring/teaching for about 7 years. In college, I tutored middle school and university students in math, science, history, Spanish, and ESOL. I completed both a practicum and an internship in an elementary school setting for ESOL and Spanish. I've volunteered in an adult ESOL class, as well as an elementary school Spanish Club. Recently, I taught English in Hungary for one year (1st and 2nd grade) and managed to keep up my Hungarian after moving back to the U.S. Afterwards, I participated in AmeriCorps for two years at a health center in a primarily Hispanic area of Boston.
My approach to tutoring is to make the coursework relevant, practical, and interesting for the students. Younger students especially have enjoyed my original worksheets, flashcards, and games. For most students, I make use of Google Documents to create slide shows of the material.
