About Kendall

Recently, I earned a Master of International Business from Hult International Business School in August 2016. I also hold both an M.A. in Hispanic Studies with a concentration in Spanish Linguistics and a B.A. in Spanish Education with a Minor in Music. I am also a certified K-12 Spanish Teacher for the state of Louisiana.

Knowing the Spanish language, its people and their culture is something I am very passionate about. When I am teaching and tutoring, my number one goal is to always keep students motivated and I do that by helping realize the purpose behind what they are learning. As an educator, it is my responsibility to show enthusiasm about what I am teaching because if I don't care, then the student will not care.

Throughout my prior teaching and tutoring experiences, there is one thing I have learned: students like detailed explanations. When applicable, I always try to provide my students with reasons for doing things and when I do, they always tell me IT MAKES SENSE!

Spanish is a language of patterns. When tutoring, I try to help students make connections between those patterns by helping them recall prior knowledge and pointing out similarities and differences between the foreign language and their own (English). Once they are able to pick up on those patterns, the pieces start to come together and learning becomes much more meaningful.

Ultimately, it is my goal as a tutor to facilitate learning that is active. Even though the learning process takes time, as long as students are engaged in what they are doing, the amount of time it takes will pale in comparison to the knowledge that is gained.

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.

Business

I just recently graduated with a Master of International Business from Hult International Business School.

Spanish

I hold an M.A. in Hispanic Studies with a concentration in Spanish Linguistics and a B.A. in Spanish Education. I am also a certified K-12 Spanish Teacher in the State of Louisiana. Upon graduating with my bachelor's degree, I subbed extensively throughout the local school system in both short-term and long-term positions in all grades. While a graduate assistant at Louisiana State University, I tutored undergraduate students in lower-level Spanish courses and also taught two undergraduate courses of Spanish 1102.
