About Cassandra

I'm a 26 year old native Spanish speaker; I'm originally from San Francisco and moved to Baltimore to pursue my B.A. in Spanish and a minor in Latin American Studies from Goucher College. I graduated with over a 3.4 GPA. I enjoy helping people find enjoyment in the process of learning Spanish as a second language. It's not easy to learn a second language and often it makes many people become stressed and discouraged. And so my philosophy is to make the process of learning Spanish as a second language as much stress-free as possible in order to gain quality and quantity of Spanish that could be used in real life situations.

I have experience as a tutor: I have tutored middle school children in basic math, English and Spanish in 2006-2008. I have also taught dances classes, specifically Hip Hop, Salsa and modern dance over the summers (2008-2010). I'm very dedicated, outgoing, approachable and flexible.

Even though I was born in California I'm well versed in the varies Spanish dialects of Central and South America: Guatemalan, Mexican and Argentinean. In 2011 I studied in Argentina for six months and my focus was in Argentinean culture and literature.

I'm also well versed in Microsoft Word and PowerPoint. I have completed many projects in college that have required PowerPoint presentations and papers to be executed both in English and in Spanish.

In addition to teaching Hip Hop and Modern Dance, I have taught Salsa. I have danced Salsa since I was a child and do it recreationally.

I have been playing Chess since I was 10 years old. I enjoy playing the game and teaching others to play it.

I'm patient, flexible and willing to work with students who seek help in learning and/or honing their skills in the Spanish language (written, oral and reading). I'm also willing to look over assignments in order to prepare a student for school projects or exams. I'm also willing to proofread papers and work with the student in order to perfect their writing skills in Spanish.

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.

Chess

I have been playing Chess since I was nine years old. For a beginner student I would teach the name and role of each piece before engaging the beginner student in a practice game. The best way to learn the game is by trying and making mistakes. The more the student plays the more the student will understand the basic movement of the pieces and the basic strategies. I would give suggestions and demonstrate these basic strategies during these practice games until the student feels comfortable playing without any assistance.

Spanish

Graduated with a Spanish major from Goucher College in 2012. For six months I studied abroad in Cordóba, Argentina (2011) prior to obtaining my B.A. in Spanish and minor in Latin American Studies. My focus was Argentinean culture and literature. At the end of the program I was certified as a proficient Speaker from the University of Cordóba.

I have tutored numerous children from varies ages in other subjects, such as dance and Spanish. During my college career I've tutored classmates (young adults).
