About Irene

Hello everyone! I'm Irene. A recent graduate from college from a liberal arts school in middle of nowhere Western Mass. I was born and raised in IL and decided to root my career here in Lake County. I've always had a passion for tutoring. I can remember being in primary school making handwritten "worksheets" for my sister whom is two years younger. I have been a constant tutor throughout my life, both officially and unofficially.

I would help my younger 2 sisters with their homework, help other classmates study for exams, and have partaken in tutoring programs. English is a second language for my parents so ever since I was small I felt the responsibility of teaching my parents how to navigate the language. And for my friends that have taken Spanish in school, I served as an aid to them as Spanish is also my native language.

I was a recruiter as well as a tutor on the board of the Brayton Elementary School Tutoring Program during my time at Williams College. My role as recruiter involved attracting college students to sign on and then training them on how to tutor in areas varied such as reading and math. During my time there I tutored grades 1-5 in math, reading, and art.

From all of these collective experiences I hope to nurture the tutoring skills I have obtained. While I would not assign you handwritten worksheets, I want to still have that handwritten personalized touch with each lesson. I understand that not everyone learns the same, so I am here to listen and teach you how you learn best. Different people learn through different methods, be it visual, auditory, repetition, or hands-on, I am committed to teach in the style in which you prefer. I am comfortable simply helping with pre-assigned homework from a teacher to creating your own customized lesson plan and materials from the ground-up. Tell me what you want to accomplish, and I will do my best to simply help you get there in a fun and lasting manner.

I am a native Spanish speaker and learned grammar in grade school. I can provide great real life conversational skills and will help with the written and reading components in both conventional and non-conventional ways. I will customize language exercises according to your learning goals and style.

I studied French for four years in high school and still consider myself a student of the French language. While I am not multilingual proficient, I feel confident in helping an early French student strengthen their skills!

I received my B.A. in Theatre but have been doing it since I was 12. I am a firm believer that theatre is applicable in almost any discipline and I am here to utilize those skills to make the best personalized tutoring experience for my students,

Interested in hearing more about what I am willing to tutor in or my teaching style? Send me a message and I would gladly answer!

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.

Public Speaking

I took a public speaking course and was part of the Speech Club in high school. However, I believe that my most valuable source of knowledge in regards to Public Speaking is my extensive experience on stage as an actor. Whether it be in a small room of people of a large stadium stage, I am confident I can get my student feeling comfortable. I was also elected as a Class Toaster senior year in college in which I give a speech to my entire class.

Theatre

I received a Bachelor of Arts from Williams College in Theatre and I have been participating in theare since I was 12. I was the Drama Club President in High School. I also attended Accademia Dell'Arte, a physical theatre school in Tuscany, Italy.
