About Steven

My name is Steven. Over the past five or six years I have been really fascinated with languages. I was born and raised in North Florida where we only spoke English. I spent several months in Spain working on the Spanish language. As of now I am going to school at a university in Ohio, majoring in Spanish and minoring in German. I realized languages came to me rather easily and I would like to one day be an interpreter for the Army National Guard.


I believe language is a wonderful tool in which we have the ability to express the deepest dimension of ourselves through certain arrangements of various sounds and expressions. I have not yet had much experience in tutoring. I believe, however, through submerging the student into the language in a pleasing manor and giving them written and oral assignments, it will facilitate their grasp of a new language. After I see where each student's skills lay by going over various linguistic elements with them, I will slowly introduce new and more advance elements through speaking, writing and reading. Over time each student will hopefully gain the skills they are hoping to achieve.

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.

English

I studied languages in high-school and in college. I have come to a greater understanding, not so much from English classes but through foreign languages. It is through those that I could see better the way English worked. I also spend much of my time reading and writing novels in English.

Spanish

I have appreciated languages since I was young but more recently I began to really love them. I have gone over to Spain several times the last being for several months where I learned a good amount of Spanish. I learned by far more Spanish in the three months there then 2 years of high school Spanish. After Spain, I went eventually to a school where I earned a bachelors of arts in Spanish. I have some experience with Spanish Literature, though remembering names I have some difficulty. I have worked with phonetics and verbs and sentences simple and advanced. Those in particular are my strengths.

Violin

I have been playing the violin for about 9 years now. I had formal lessons for four years while I was in high school. From then on, I have been playing in various church choirs. I also played in a Schola during college where I performed various pieces with my group.
