About Olive

I first began tutoring in high school to fulfill a graduation requirement, but perhaps my experience with one-on-one learning began even earlier, as I was homeschooled until middle school. I attended a college preparatory school, and began teaching privately during an exchange program my senior year. I continued this private instruction in college, and now have more than 7 years of experience teaching various languages, as well as other subjects. In addition to tutoring, I was able to go on a volunteer trip to Guatemala where we helped build a school, delivered handmade children's books to a small village, and were ourselves tutored in Spanish. I also worked at a bilingual Good Will store where I got further practice in Spanish. I began teaching English as a second language to make money while I was in Europe to travel around the continent and to take private lessons in German myself. Perhaps it is my experience of being tutored that makes me value the advantage that taking private lessons can have on a person's learning. Everybody learns at a different pace, and the only way to learn as much as one can is to tailor the learning experience. I have a B.A from Lewis and Clark College in Philosophy and Foreign Languages. I would love to opportunity to share my knowledge and experience, and also to prepare myself for a possible career in teaching.

Approved subjects

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.

Public Speaking

I participated in Speech and Debate both in High school and College, where I frequently placed in the top three. I placed 2nd in an interpretive speech event at the stave level which earned me a scholarship to the forensics team at Lewis and Clark College, where I continued to place in the top 4. I have participated in speech, impromptu speech, debate, and partner performance, as well as having helped coach my high school team in my senior year. I have also studied communication and rhetoric at the college level.
