Colrado State University @ Pueblo (Spanish)
I grew up in a Catholic orphanage at the Mission San Diego de Alcala, in San Diego, CA. A lifelong love of the Spanish language began there and has continued to this day. I majored in Spanish and Social Science at the University of Southern Colorado, which has since been renamed Colorado State University @ Pueblo.
I, along with a native Spanish speaker from Columbia, co-taught a course entitled "Spanish for Law Enforcement Personnel" to approximately 600 students in 13 separate two-week classes from 2000-2004. The process of learning a foreign language begins with an understanding of the basics such as grammar, verb conjugation, tense and mood, and how to translate sentence structure. I can certainly help students utilizing the one on one tutoring format. It is infinitely less intimidating to respond to an individual as opposed to an entire class, especially when the pronunciation process is in its infancy.
Social Studies are to my mind the ability to put difficult concepts, in their respective historical time frames and periods. Once a student understands the basic philosophical movement which underlines a particular period, then understanding is enhanced greatly.
I am flexible with a time schedule and if given a 24-hour cancellation notice can reschedule a tutoring session. My goal is to make every session helpful and productive. Successful outcomes must be measured and tracked. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.
