I have always been interested in helping other people learn. I did very well in college, at law school, and in an MBA program. My written and oral communication skills are excellent, and I can be very detail oriented. I have studied French and Russian at the college level, and have traveled abroad extensively so I have learned how to communicate with people from all walks of life.
I am very patient and understanding when others are having trouble with a skill or concept. My church has a tutoring program with which I have been very involved. The students are usually from inner city or failing schools, yet not one of them has failed to improve with my help and their hard work.
I have also had the opportunity to work with migrant workers from Mexico, and with my college Spanish, and their eagerness to learn, we managed to communicate well.

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.
While living in Oceana County, I had experience working with Spanish speakers, mostly migrant workers. I was successful in helping them learn to communicate with English speakers. In college, I tutored other students in French and Russian, and enjoyed it immensely. I have always been an expert in English grammar, spelling, and vocabulary.
I have lived and traveled abroad and was always able to communicate with those for whom English was not their native language. My church had a tutoring program and many of the children were Spanish speakers. I take great pride in the success the students had in improving their command of English. I took courses in linguistics in college and have numerous books at home as references in the field of linguistics.
