University of Missouri (Spanish)
My name is Eliana and I'm 25 years old. I graduated from the University of Missouri with a BA in Spanish and moved from St. Louis to Los Angeles in July of 2014. In college, I initially majored in Early Childhood Education. However, because of my love for the Spanish language and culture, and my desire to study abroad (which was not an option to Education majors due to the highly structured education program), I became a Spanish major. During the fall semester of 2013, I studied abroad in Madrid, Spain. As part of the program, I interned at a local public school, teaching in Spanish and in English, about the cultural differences between Spain and the United States. I taught students ages 12-18. I have experience working with younger children as well. During my two years of coursework as an Early Childhood Education major, I tutored special needs children in reading and math, and taught in kindergarten and fourth grade classrooms. Also, I spent one year as a teacher's assistant in a Pre-K classroom.
This fall I started a new job as an Assistant Preschool teacher at an academy, which has given me valuable experience working in the classrooms with children ages 2-5. We use many different types of teaching methods, encouraging students to be creative and independent. Each child has a different learning style and it is crucial to cater to each individual student's needs. I will do anything I can so my students can succeed. I want to recognize the potential of every student and strive to help the student see that same potential. I always dreamt of integrating my two passions - Spanish and Education - and now I can as a tutor. My name is Eliana and I'm 25 years old.
