I am a persistent tutor with many years of experience at problem solving and prioritizing. I speak and write English, Spanish and Russian fluently. I am certified in Spanish languages (DELE C/D, DELE D3) by Cervantes University at Seville and Malaga University of Spain. This type of degree is the equivalent of a Master's here in the US. My work history has been mostly in Europe, but is extensive. I have more than 10 years of experience international communication, project presentation, planning and preparation. I also spent 12 years working in event development, personnel management and office organization. I am familiar with many computer programs, including PowerPoint, Photoshop, Video Editor, Windows Office and Mac Software.
I also have several certifications, including Customer Service (through the National Retail Federation Foundation), OSHA (workplace safety), ServeSafe (food safety and sanitation), and MASS Allergen (food allergies). In addition, I have more than 17 years of experience in extreme mountain sports, and 5 years with a professional university basketball team. I am also experienced at Interior and Exterior Design and decoration for events.
I am very motivated and motivate others. I have several personal reasons for why I want to tutor. In my previous work, I have always made helping people a priority, and it has always been a part of my job in one way or another. I want to continue to help people with projects and problem-solving, including on short notice. I am tutoring people with the goal of helping them gain a happier and healthier life that will lead to future goals. My personal teaching style includes focusing on positive and encouraging self talk methods. I personally find positive self-talk to be useful in developing personal goals. I teach from experience and help clients use their transferable skills to move toward their goals. I understand their needs and make a plan of action that works for them.
