Xavier University of Louisiana (Spanish)
For most of my academic life I was a student of the Spanish language. When I was in elementary school, I was taught basic Spanish while enrolled in the Enrichment (i.e. GATE) Program. In junior high school, I studied Spanish extracurricularly for one year. As a high school student, I immersed myself in the language for four straight years. I excelled in most of my classes, as learning the language has never been particularly difficult for me.
I do indeed have extensive tutoring experience. As an undergraduate student, I rendered my services to my peers free of charge for four years. I absolutely love being a tutor! The idea of working with pupils individually (or in very small groups) greatly appeals to me. The child is able to learn at his or her own pace under the guidance of an individual who is assigned to assist him/her one-on-one. As a tutor, I am able to explain concepts to students as many times as necessary until they grasp them. I can be as patient as my tutees need me to be. In most cases, it is more likely that a person will retain the information that is presented to him/her by someone like me because a tutor is able to cater to his/her specific needs.
I am a graduate of Xavier University of Louisiana in New Orleans. During my collegiate years, I tutored students enrolled in beginning and intermediate-level Spanish classes. My areas of expertise were (and still are) Grammar, Linguistics, and Vocabulary. I also worked as a volunteer Teacher's Aide for two non-consecutive semesters. I evaluated quizzes/tests and edited short compositions for my Intermediate and Advanced Spanish Language professors. In the Fall of 2005, I studied in Seville, Spain, where I completed four courses: Advanced Composition; Current Events of Spain; Spanish-American Civilization; Advanced Topics in Spanish Language. In May of 2006, I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish from my alma mater.
Additionally, since verbal expression has always been one of my fortes, I am fully capable of helping individuals who wish to sharpen their English Language Arts skills. I am thoroughly prepared to assist anyone who has a desire to improve his/her spelling ability, expand his/her vocabulary, or enhance his/her understanding of language mechanics (i.e. Grammar, Syntax, Capitalization, Punctuation, Technical Usage of Words).
Finally, I am available to help youngsters who are enrolled in elementary school (K-3rd grade) math. Future pupils will actually enjoy learning because I can provide children with a highly hands-on and interactive experience. I encourage all individuals who feel that they may benefit from my services to contact me. For most of my academic life I was a student of the Spanish language.

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.
