About OGONNA

Hi! I'm a graduate of the University of Maryland-Baltimore County with an M.A. in Intercultural Communication (emphasis in Hispanic Studies and Intercultural Training). I also received my B.A. from the of California-Davis with a major in Psychology and double minors in Education and English.

I've always loved learning languages and getting others excited about them as well. I come from a large family of linguists where many speak and/or understand at least 3 languages. I've studied Spanish for over 8 years. I've studied abroad in Argentina to completely immerse myself in the Spanish language and Argentine culture. Most recently, I studied abroad in Spain for my Master's degree program. Additionally, I've studied Korean for more than 2 years. I worked in South Korea as an English teacher for a year while continuing my language studies abroad. Thus, through my international experiences, I'm able to communicate and teach in various cultural environments.

I have over 8 years of experience as an educator; 6 of which involved working with native Spanish speakers who were learning English. I've guided and empowered many of our K-12 youth as well as prospective, current and transfer university students to take full advantage of the resources available to them to succeed via their school and/or their community.

My approach to teaching/tutoring is quite varied yet flexible which allows me to change my teaching methods to best suit students' individual needs. I have a constant dialogue with my students, their parents and occasionally their teachers to ensure they are receiving all the necessary services available as we all work together as a team.

It's easy to see my commitment to education over the years through my experience shown in my resume; which can be furnished upon request.

I look forward to speaking with you soon!

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.

College Counseling

I have over 4 years experience advising prospective/incoming, transfer and current students at University of California-Davis(UCD). I received months of rigorous training from UCD to be able to explain and advise students on their course/major/minor selections, how to satisfy various graduation requirements, and where they can get access to certain services and opportunities at UCD, other UC schools, and community colleges.

ESL/ESOL

I have worked with students and adults to help them learn English. I have experience teaching English in South Korea and in California for over 2 years.

Korean

I have over 2 years experience with the Korean language during my one year teaching contract in South Korea and via a Korean language course I took in college. During my tenure in South Korea, I also familiarized myself with the Korean culture and customs to better understand and explain the language to others.
