About Axel

Hello!
My name is Axel S., and I am a recent graduate from Wesleyan University with a degree in Psychology, specializing in neuropsychology, and I am working as a Research Assistant at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. I’ve been tutoring students of all ages in Spanish, English and Literature for 3 years. I also used to coach a youth climbing team in Colorado and I coach the Tufts and MIT climbing teams in Boston. I know how to help someone when they are facing an obstacle; sometimes it is academic, sometimes it is physical, and sometimes both.

I would like to help you in your efforts to develop your language and writing skills and grow, holistically, as a student.

In 2014 I worked at El Diario NY, the leading Hispanic newspaper in NYC as part of the editorial staff: writing articles and editing and uploading content to the newspaper’s online portal. I am also a blogger producing for The Huffington Post and am putting together a compilation of short stories to publish as a book at the end of the year. I’ve worked with the Cultural Affairs section of the American Embassy in Argentina creating content for press releases and organizing and managing high profile events within the ambassador’s residence including a reception for Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project.

I grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina and am fluent in Spanish, French and English, currently learning German. I have found that the fluency in these languages has helped me enormously when interviewing individuals, working for the newspaper or researching my own interests. I have travelled extensively, which has taught me a great deal about cultural limitations and social constructs.

If you have any other questions I might be of assistance with please do not hesitate to ask. I look forward to hearing from you,

Sincerely
Axel S.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

English

I graduated from Wesleyan University with a double major in Neuropsychology and English.
I've been writing for years, and am a published author in two languages, English and Spanish. I write for the Huffington Post and am working on a novel.
I used to tutor English in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I think in order to learn languages one mustn't try and memorize grammar and vocabulary, but rather learn it by associating with ideas and images, the way we learn our native language.

Spanish

I was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I moved to the United States three years ago, and graduated from Wesleyan University with a double major in Neuropsychology and English.
I am a published author in both languages: I am a writer for the Huffington Post, and I worked within the Editorial Department at El Diario NY, the biggest spanish newspaper in NYC.

Writing

I am a a writer for The Huffington Post, and am writing a work of fiction to be published.
I graduated from Wesleyan University with a double major in Neuropsychology and English.
The best way to develop writing skills is a combination of reading different works of literature and practice, and editing, and doing it all over again.
