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.

As a Master's level Spanish professional who taught High School and college, I am very proficient with grammar, composition, reading and writing comprehension. While teaching at Decatur High School, I taught Spanish not only to those kids considered to be functional in those areas, but to those students considered to be at risk. It is very important to have a lot of patience when working with young people and to instill confidence and a sense of self-worth as apart of their academic achievement requirements.
I can only be an asset for your child in this arena. My motto: YOUR ATTITUDE DETERMINES YOUR ALTITUDE!!
High School Spanish is focused on repetitive conversation. Having lived in Spain, I know firsthand that it is important to teach in Spanish and English following up with basic grammar. I am very familiar with DeKalb County School System and City of Decatur textbooks. I have their curriculum in my instructional materials.
I also have experience teaching at DeKalb College and was an interpreter while studying abroad for English tourists. I am an excellent motivator of youth and adept in encouraging excellence.
