Frostburg State (Athletic Training)
Former teacher at a private boarding school up in Maine the past 5 years. Relocated down to Maryland to pursue my Masters degree. I taught the foundations of the Spanish language and Anatomy and Physiology classes and tutored in the evenings primarily those, but also helped in paper and essay composition.
Originally hired at the above mentioned school as an Assistant Athletic Trainer, teaching came along with the job as did a swell of other titles. My nature of helping those remain or regain access to a sports field was extended to the classrooms via this job. I was delighted to have the opportunity to meet and work with students off the field and delve into the challenge of working with boys and girls who brought different learning styles as well as life experiences to the school. Inspiring curiosity in the classrooms became a passion for me.
With being an Athletic Trainer it is vital to be well versed in the names, functions, and locations of all things pertaining to human anatomy. One would not last long in this profession without the ability to pull this knowledge out on the fly. Memorizing landmarks and actions of the muscles isn't the easiest of tasks to do. Over my years or education within the subject and practice in the field I have developed many sayings and acronyms to help remember information so that it sticks in a permanent fashion. Creativity is key with this tool and also allows a chance for each individual learner to customize their own work.
I've worked with students ranging from 13 to 21 years old in this subject. The key I've found to helping students grasp the language is building little tips and tricks to remember meanings of vocabulary or conjugations of verbs. Much of the English and Spanish language have several crossover meanings which can be manipulated into clever ways of recalling what words mean or how to change them appropriately to place them in sentence configuration.
I've played lacrosse for 15 years, and coached for 5. I specialize with face-off skills for boys, honing techniques, building faster reflexes and creating confidence in situations where the draw isn't going as intended. I also do goalie work as well with both boys and girls. Training quicker reactions time, and proper mechanics to be a successful net-minder.
My best available times are evenings from 6pm-9pm and most all the day Sundays until 7pm. Please feel free to contact me with times that work better with your schedule and I will try and see if I can make it work. I do have some wiggle room come afternoons especially later in the week.

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.
I have been playing lacrosse for 15 years. Played club through college because my University didn't have a varsity team. Been playing post-collegiate since then up in New England for various teams from Maine and New Hampshire. I've also been playing internationally with the Filipino National Team. Coached the previous 5 years at high schools and with seasonal travel teams. Mostly in the position of assistant coach, specifically in regards to face-off for the boys game.
