Western Michigan University (English Spanish)
I went to school at Western Michigan University from 2007-2013 in order to pursue a teaching degree in Spanish and English Language Arts for middle school and high school-aged students.
While there, I was fortunate to be able to interact with a variety of student types in both middle and high school settings at several locations.
I also have found that I have a budding passion for DSLR photography, especially of nature photos and the changing seasons.
I love reading any and all material and love having literature discussions with students to see what they think of the texts we have both read. It gives me great pleasure to see when a student discovers something new in a test they haven't previously seen or understood.
I not only have experience teaching basic prealgebra skills to students of middle school age, but also I worked in a summer program and had one-on-one experiences with students who needed to review prealgebra techniques or they were in a class to learn concepts early on before the next school year began. I also specifically worked with a couple of ESL students while directly working with math terminology and practice problems.
I studied the Spanish language at Western Michigan University for 5 years as well as took initiative to live in a foreign country (the Dominican Republic) so I could push myself to really practice speaking the language. On top of this, I learned a lot of cool things about the culture in this country which I would be delighted to share and teach with your child!
I worked as a foreign English/Language arts teacher in the Dominican Republic where I worked with students in middle school and high school aged-groups on different aspects of grammar, literature, and reading throughout the school year.

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 learned how to play the trumpet when I was in middle school and continued tn play the trumpet throughout high school in an advanced quartet. After high school, I practiced on my own for several years at a leisure pace during college and even got together with other friends who played on their own for fun.
