Washington University in St. Louis (Spanish)
Hi there! I'm Tiffany and I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in 2014 with a B.A. in Environmental Policy and Spanish. I studied abroad in Ecuador during the Summer of 2012 where my coursework focused on Andean culture and Spanish conversation. I love languages and I hope to someday be able to speak six languages (it's an arbitrary number but I'm sticking to it). So far I've knocked out English (yay), Mandarin, Spanish, and elementary French. I'd like to learn Sign Language, Portuguese, or German next. I did really well in my Spanish classes in high school and college, but I realize that everyone approaches their academics differently. I will do my best to help you learn YOUR way. I can give homework help (grammar, writing, etc.) and we will also speak primarily in Spanish just to get you used to making and hearing the sounds. It might seem funky at first, especially if you don't get a lot chances to speak in class (that was the case for me), but eventually you'll feel more confident. Plus, I'm not judging!
In addition to Spanish, I am also interested in Environmental Studies and arts/craft making and can help you with that if you're taking related courses. School is hard but we are really lucky to get the opportunity for an education. Good grades are cool but actually learning something is what's most important! If you're looking for a tutor who will be relatable and fun, you found the right person!
I started taking Spanish courses outside of school in 4th grade at the local community college. I aced my high school and college Spanish courses and studied abroad in Quito, Ecuador during the summer of 2012. In college I wrote more essays and read more books in Spanish than in English!
I have taken courses in ceramics, bookbinding, film photography, drawing, and general art. I love love love making things with my hands and am mostly self-taught in painting and digital photography.
If you want a tutor who has an easy-going personality but who won't let you fall behind, I'm your girl. LEARNING IS FUN YAY. Hi there!

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.
I got straight A's in high school Spanish and in college I took classes that required me to read novels and write lengthy essays in Spanish. I would brush up my skills before meeting you and try to find a copy of your textbook.
