Sharing my knowledge and coaching learners are activities I truly enjoy, both teaching in a formal classroom, or less formally, tutoring a single student. I have teaching experience in both settings, as a secondary teacher and university instructor, as well as an ESL and Spanish language tutor. My experience also includes writing and editing technical documents.
My objective as a teacher/tutor is to tailor the instruction to the individual student for maximum learning while encouraging the student to take initiative for future academic success. This requires getting to know the student's learning style, motivations, and future goals, all of which I strive to explore during the tutoring process.
I have taught English, including grammar and essay writing as a high school teacher, Business Writing courses at the university level, and ESL English to foreign students as a tutor. As a technical writer/editor, I have created and edited a wide variety of technical documents requiring proofreading and rewriting skills. In addition to a B.S. degree in Secondary Education-English major, I enhanced my skills through technical writing and editing classes offered at the local university.
I have 8 years experience of full-time teaching Spanish as a secondary teacher and 5 years of part-time experience as a Spanish instructor at the university/community college level. I have also tutored adult learners in conversational Spanish. My education includes a B.S. degree in Secondary Education-Spanish Language and an M.S. degree in Spanish Language and Literature.

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.
