Junior (Language, Business)
Dear Potential Students,
I am an undergraduate student at IU, studying foreign languages and Business. I have always excelled in my classes, so I know what it takes to succeed at school and learning. I love helping others especially through tutoring. There are few more rewarding things in teaching than being able to see the real impact that you have when you help someone learn. You get to experience the moment when the light switch flickers as your student begins to grasp a difficult concept and become proud with themselves when they realize they are understanding.
I also have experience in teaching others. The mistakes that I made and learned from are still fresh in my mind, so I will be able to share my experiences with others so that they can progress through their education even faster. I currently teach English to a Turkish adult, I have taught 2nd-5th graders at the Latino Community Center in Bloomington, and I have tutored peers my age at the Asian cultural center on IU's campus. Every experience is an opportunity to not only teach another but to also bond with and learn from my students, as they often teach me ways to improve my tutoring, random facts, etc. I look forward to working with you and taking part in a learning exchange.

I have taken several art classes throughout my education. I am able to do portraits, landscapes, and caricatures. I also love to paint with watercolors. I believe that drawing can be taught to anyone. It's all about training the eye to see reality and then teaching the hand to transfer that aspect of reality to paper.
Italian is one of my majors at IU. I learn Italian because it is part of my heritage. I plan to study abroad in Bologna, Italy for a semester.
Portuguese is one of my majors at IU. I am nearly fluent in Spanish as well so I have a very good cultural background in regards to Latin America. I have helped put together the Portuguese play at Bloomington Playwrights Projects.
I have always been a good speller. I placed third in the spelling bee in elementary school. I study foreign languages so I know the best practices for learning to spell.
I have played tennis for a total of eight years. I was all state in high school. I hold the record for the 2nd most matches won at my high school.
I love to read. Nearly every time that I come across an unknown word I look it up. I study foreign languages which teaches me the best ways to study and retain vocabulary.
