About Connor

It has always been my belief that in order to enjoy tutoring and teaching, one must appreciate the value of learning and sharing the ideas we learn. For as long as I can remember I have always enjoyed asking questions, working out problems, testing myself, and helping students around me do the same in order to achieve a higher understanding.

As a student of the Spanish Language at the University of Florida who has enjoyed both classroom instruction and International experience in Latin America, I understand the cultural value of learning a foreign language and strive to promote that value during my sessions.

Learning another language is a wonderfully exciting process that both challenges students to think critically in new ways and rewards them immensely for doing so. As a native english speaker I understand the complexities that trouble many Spanish students and offer expert advice on navigating them so that the student can enjoy both the language and the numerous cultures it helps develop. My passion is helping students overcome linguistic obstacles, I enjoy my work and am very organized with my instruction.

My fees tend to fall closer to $45 and my schedule is open in the evening hours allowing students to find a time that works best for them. I look forward to working with you!

As a student here in the U.S. I have participated in numerous educational benchmarking programs such as the AP Spanish Language and Culture Exam (receiving a 5 out of 5), the Florida State Spanish Conference (competing on the Native Level), and the CLEP Exam (receiving a 78 out of 80). In addition, I have more than a years worth of experience living in Latin America with Rotary Youth Exchange and have travelled through several countries on the Western portion of the South American continent. As a student at the University of Florida majoring in Spanish Language and maintaining a 3.9 GPA I am currently enrolled in upper level undergraduate classes (3500 and higher) and plan on obtaining both a Masters Degree and a PhD in Spanish Language later in my career. I understand the workings of the language because of my background as a native English speaker and pay particular detail to differences I know confuse most students of the language.

I am a very friendly, dedicated, and enthusiastic tutor wanting to help students realize their dreams of speaking Spanish. Whether you are simply looking to brush up for a short trip or are deciding to make learning Spanish a larger part of your life rest assured that with my experience and love of teaching I can help you achieve that goal and enjoy achieving it.

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.

Spanish

As an undergraduate at the University of Florida majoring in Spanish and a past exchange student with Rotary Youth Exchange to PerĂº, I have ample experience in both formal and informal Spanish. I received a score of 5 on the AP Spanish Language and Culture exam and have participated in the Florida State Spanish conference on the Native Level. I've collected over 5 years of tutoring Spanish and am an organized, enthusiastic tutor who always tries to make the lesson as clear and enjoyable as possible!

World History

As a motivated, organized, and hard working history tutor I make it my goal to create lessons and reviews that are enjoyable and easy to understand for students that may have a difficult time grappling with the material. After receiving scores of 5/5 on the AP American History, AP World History, and AP European History Exams as well as ample experience taking history based classes at the University of Florida and the University of Oslo in Oslo Norway I feel more than comfortable helping students see history as an engaging and interesting course of study!

Connor broke down Spanish grammar for me to a level where I understand it and can study it on my own now without being lost. He provided a lot of tips to help remember information as well as provide other resources to study with. We went over the specific topics I wanted to go over as well as supplemental information that will help me now and in future studying as well.
