About Whitney

Hi!

My name is Whitney Q., and I am bilingual in Spanish and English. I enjoy tutoring and teaching a variety of subjects to both adults and children. Originally from Buckhead, I attended the Westminster Schools where I began studying Spanish in 6th grade. I continued with it through high school and then graduated from the University of Georgia Cum Laude with 2 degrees, in Education and Spanish. I have taught and tutored all ages including pre-K, elementary, middle, and high school students in both the classroom and in home settings. My most recent project last semester consisted of tutoring a college-level Advanced Spanish course (SPAN 2002) to a UGA student for over 120 hours. I have to say that I am very proud and excited for my student who received a 95.5% in his class and is now a college graduate. I have also taught Spanish and English after-school programs as well as adult language classes as a volunteer through The Latin American Association in Atlanta.

In addition to tutoring Spanish to adults, I enjoy tutoring children in a variety of subjects. Throughout my 15 year tenure working with children, I have provided tutoring on various subjects including elementary math, reading, phonics, and spelling. I currently work for a family in Brookhaven who has two elementary aged students including one with mild dyslexia. These are the principal subjects that we have worked on all year, but I am open to all subjects and ages.

I enjoy tutoring because it enables me to work one on one with students. To me, this gives the student a great advantage over learning in a large classroom setting (although I do have experience there as well). I believe that getting to know a student's personality, study habits, and where their strengths and weaknesses lie is highly effective in assuring their success. Equally important is making sure a student stays on track and learns the subject material according to the way the course is taught. Lastly, it is so rewarding to see student's grades and overall attitude toward a subject improve once he or she learns the subject.

In addition to tutoring, I have many hobbies and am caring, outgoing, funny, compassionate, and intelligent. I also have my own small business. My company is designed to provide care management and life enrichment to the senior population. After working at a large corporate law firm here in Atlanta, I finally decided to start my own company where I could be of service to others. This is what I love to do through care management and teaching/tutoring each client according to his or her specific needs.

I am interested in tutoring in the Athens and Atlanta area. Please note that my resume is more corporate-geared, but I am happy to answer additional questions, explain my experience further, and/or provide additional references.

Thanks for your interest!

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.

Reading

I have worked on reading, vowels, consonants and sentence formations from children ages pre-K to 8th grade. I have taught Spanish which requires reading in another language as well as vowels and consonant formation in another language. I have been a tutor and teacher for a combined total of over 18 years.
