Georgia College and State University (Spanish)
I've been helping my peers with Spanish and English grammar--mostly proofreading--as far back as I can remember. I've always had a knack for linguistics, and I'm even working on learning German for fun. Learning a new language is not only useful, but it can even be fun. As a published poet, I also believe that English grammar and proficiency in it is a dying art form. Developing my craft as a writer has helped me deal with some of the hardest times in my life so far, and I want to share my passion with whomever I can. Literature helped me get in touch with and relate to my feelings, and express them in a healthy manner when I was a kid. I may be a bit of a "hard grader" when it comes to proofreading, but that's because I believe in the power of words, in every language.
I recently accepted an internship position with Connect Clubhouse where I teach elementary and middle school level Spanish and introductory piano, and provide general homework assistance. At the Clubhouse, I work with kids ages 7-16 three to four days a week, and I also chaperone out-of-town field trips. I am over there quite often, but I'll do my best to make my schedule work for my students.
I'm fluent in Spanish, and currently working toward a Bachelor of Arts in it. I tutored Spanish all through high school, and am working toward publication of a poetry volume of my Spanish works. I also won several Spanish awards in middle and primary school, and have one of the highest averages in my Spanish class (level 2002). As a freshman in high school, I personally worked with each of the 19 other students in my class, and the class average rose by 14 points from first to fourth quarter.
I've been called "the human dictionary" for as long as I can recall, and probably even longer. As a child, I always received the highest scores on Accelerated Reader tests every academic quarter from first through eighth grade, and I was reading on an 11th-grade level by the time I was nine years old. I also have a published poetry anthology.
I like working with and helping people. I'm very adaptable and I like learning new ways to help the people I tutor. I make it a point to work with my students on ways to help them learn better.

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.
