About Renata

I am a Jane of all Trades in regards to teaching.

I am certified K-12 for Spanish in the state of Florida. I'm also highly knowledgeable in English, geography, history theatre, some music, Microsoft Excel, Word, Outlook, Photoshop, Indesign and Illustrator.

I hold an international Advanced TEFL certificate which means I can teach/tutor students wishing to learn English as a Second Language.

I have traveled extensively abroad to various Latin American countries such as Argentina, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, and Puerto Rico. I've also traveled extensively across the United States and portions of Europe. I am highly knowledgable in geography, as I won the National Geographic Geography Bee three years in a row for my elementary school.

I believe in one-on-one tutoring, either online or in-person.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

American History

I love American history. It is one of the subjects I am most passionate about. I love to share the knowledge that I have with other students.

In high school and college, American history was one of the subjects I excelled at.

English

I hold a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. I love to write. I love to read, tell and write stories. English was always my favorite subject in school. I wrote for my high school newspaper, which at the time was ranked #9 out of the nation.

Currently, I write travel blogs and have finished a movie script.

ESL/ESOL

I hold 120 hours in TEFL certification (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) from the Ibero TEFL Institute in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Tutoring ESOL is one of my favorite teaching passions in the world. I have tutored students online as well. My students were mostly Korean, but I have taught students from Argentina.

Geography

I won the National Geographic Geography Bee three years in a row for my elementary school between 1993, 1994, and 1995.

I love geography. I explore geography on a first hand basis by wandering on foot, checking out maps on Google or on paper, poring over atlases and maps. I also love looking at historical maps to see the old boundaries of countries.

Macintosh

I use Macintosh products everyday. I own an Apple iPhone, iPad, MacBook Pro and a Mac Mini. I have been working on Macintosh products since I was 14 years old when I began using them for Journalism purposes. Over 15 years have passed and I prefer Macintosh products to regular PC products. I may have to pay more money for these, but I know that Macintosh will not fail me.

Salsa Dancing

I was raised listening to Latin music, which includes, Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, and some Tango. I have been dancing salsa since I was a child as well. When I taught in school, I sponsored a club that promoted Latin music. I also have gone to locations that have and promote salsa dancing.

Spanish

I have been bilingual between Spanish and English since birth. I've been teaching Spanish to students between KG-12th grade since 2007 both online and in person. I've used Skype, telephone and Blackboard Collaborate to teach Spanish before when I taught online.

I love to teach Spanish language and culture to my students as it's not just about Spain, but also the other Spanish speaking countries. I've traveled extensively around Latin America. I've lived in Costa Rica and essentially have lived in Argentina each time I visit since I stay for extended periods of time.

Writing

I have a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. I have a personal and travel blog based off of my travels across the globe.

I also have been writing for publication since 1997. I won a few awards in the JEMKC awards in 2000.

Since then, I have mostly written for personal pleasure, but I still love to write.

I enjoy helping others find their own writing "souls" within themselves.
