About Tanvi


Bio

Hello! My name is Tanvi, and I'm a senior studying English and Spanish at the University of Iowa. I've enjoyed spending time with kids of all ages having worked in the children's department of a library and coordinating religious education for children between the ages of 4-15. I enjoy helping students realize their own potential and find their strengths!

Hello! My name is Tanvi, and I'm a senior studying English and Spanish at the University of Iowa. I've enjoyed spending time with kids of all ages having worked in the children's department of a library and coordinating religious education for children between the ages of 4-15. I enjoy helping students realize their own potential and find their strengths!

As a child, I experienced struggles with certain subjects in school, and I want to help children overcome these frustrations and learn to enjoy all subjects in school! I feel so fulfilled when a student and I can work together to solve a problem or learn a new skill. I hope to perform this service for kids who struggle with English-related subjects and Spanish, too.

In my experience, using examples and finding ways to apply new knowledge serve as effective and interactive ways to solidify and develop skills. I hope to use this strategy with the students with whom I work!

With only two classes left to graduate with a Bachelor's degree in Spanish, I've gotten plenty of experience with reading, writing, listening and speaking in my classes. I've also interacted with native speakers of Spanish frequently at previous positions at the West Des Moines Public Library and the Iowa City Public Library. I've recently been asked to do interpretation for native speakers of Spanish at town forums and discussions.

I've been studying advanced courses on English since high school, and reading and writing remain two of my favorite activities. I've excelled in my college English classes, and helped many of my peers and younger students proofread, edit and rewrite their college essays and other required writing pieces.

I want to help students feel capable and competent in subjects in which they struggle. We can work together to find a professional, friendly relationship that works for the both of us, while still getting important work done!
