About Geoffrey

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish from Gardner-Webb University in North Carolina. I spent six weeks in Costa Rica studying at a school there. I've taught in the Carroll County Public School system as a home and hospital teacher, which is basically a tutor for students who can't go to school due to chronic illness, surgery, etc. I provide them with instruction until their return. I've been doing this for close to eight years. I also taught Spanish at night school for CCPS.
While in college I played on the tennis team, and had an academic scholarship through the foreign language department.
I've done individual tutoring for students who've struggled in Spanish. I'm patient, willing to start from scratch if necessary. I can provide written and oral help. Through my teaching experience and college, I have extra resources beyond textbooks that may help.

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.

Spanish

I have a B.A. in Spanish and have been to Mexico and Costa Rica to learn more Spanish. I have textbooks and other resources from when I was in school. I speak Spanish almost every day because I have co-workers that can only speak Spanish. I have been with WyzAnt for two years now.

Writing

I've always been a great speller. Always got good grades in English and writing. In the process of writing a novel. I have resources to help with spelling, grammar, punctuation, and overall English and grouping together for sentence structure.

Very responsive to emails and great with students

Mr. Vale responded quickly to my emails. He was flexible with dates and times. Both my children were impressed with his knowledge and the ability to jump right in and help them with hw as well as give them additional assignments.
