My name is Adelaida and I received a Bachelor of Arts from Old Dominion University. My major is International Studies and my minors are Community Health and Psychology. I participated in many programs at the university level which prepared me in the personal and academic level to be a great tutor. I was the president of an student organization on campus that promotes diversity and intercultural relations among students. I obtained a certificate from the national Bacchus Network Organization as a Peer Health Educator.

I have the ability to communicate fluently in the Spanish and English languages, and at the intermediate level in French. I have outstanding writing and communication skills, which allow me to do well in most subjects and articulate greatly when alternating between the languages. I enjoy teaching students at any level of learning the language, and I consider tutoring lessons to be very advantageous for perfection of the desired language. In the professional level, I consider myself very organized and punctual with my students. I always have my teaching tools ready before I meet with them so that they can learn more and interact better with their tutor.

As a trilingual person I value greatly the importance of communication in different languages during the era of globalization. Our society is experiencing the most diversity and international relationships than ever before. Therefore I believe in the importance of being well educated and being able to speak, read and write in a language other than our first language.

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

As an ESL teacher I have the experience of being both a student and a teacher of the subject. I learned English when I arrived to the US at age thirteen. I attended an ESL class provided by my school and benefited greatly from the lesson plans and activities set up by the instructors. For that reason I decided to help others who are in the process of learning English, so that they can have a worthwhile experience in the process of learning the new language.

I have tutored students with different cultural backgrounds, ages and academic English knowledge levels. It has been a pleasure and satisfaction to see their growth and achievements as English speakers. I am open and willing to provide English lessons to any student whose dream is to learn the language. Most of my past students have some or all of the following characteristics:
• First language is Spanish or French
• Are preparing to take the TOEFL to be admitted to a US university
• Are preparing for the US immigration citizenship civics test (Naturalization Test)
• Level of English is either beginner, intermediate or advance
• Are looking for challenging lessons to lead them to speaking functional conversations in the environment in which they live

Spanish

My first language is Spanish, and I have the ability to teach the language from my experience learning two other languages (English and French. In addition, from my experience as a teacher in all the three language subjects.

I enjoy teaching innovative techniques and activities to make the learning process part of daily life.
