My name is Holly. I am 26 years old, but my experience with children and education is vast. I have taught and supervised children in church settings for 12 years plus; I helped supervise those younger than me in church youth group; in high school I practiced as a teacher's aide; I have tutored a middle school age boy; and most recently I have taken a love for instructing swim lessons. I like tutoring because I can make a difference in someone's life by helping them and also empowering them.

The approach I take to tutoring/instructing a student is all about what that student needs. Whether they need courage to stick their face under water, the preterit tense of "saber", or to know how to kick a ball low, I teach them how and why they need these skills. If a student does not know these key answers, they are not really learning. For me school has mostly come natural, but I had a much easier time learning when I grasped how and why I need to learn a topic/skill.

Please consider me as a tutor/instructor.

Spanish

Spanish

My educational experience includes 4 years in high school education and one year in college. Education/Experiential most recently covers one semester studying abroad through Center for Cross-Cultural Studies in Alicante, Spain. I currently tutor and take the method of individualized plans based on the students' needs. I use the study of vocabulary heavily and also favor the use of games and making learning suited to the students' interests. The more comfortable the student, the more they will want to communicate.

Bible Studies

Bible Studies is a subject that needs to be placed in the context of history, culture, authorship, etc. And if one is a practitioner the goal is always evaluation of the heart response to the Bible. The Bible is very intricate; I know this because I am a Christian, I studied Intro to the Hebrew Bible in College, and I study the New Testament currently. It is important to try and get to the root words of Hebrew and Greek when studying our English translations. I am learning to read Hebrew right now.
Sociology

Sociology

Sociology is the study of groups of people: how they function, think, adapt, and "socialize." There are all types of sociology; social psychology analyzes how people form conclusions when in a group setting or from past group experiences. This is my most memorable knowledge of sociology because I took a course in college. Sociology was my 'affiliate' course in college: I took courses in social work, social psychology, problems in society, and social problems in Spain. There are often very peculiar experiments for sociologists. For example, Freud did many tests manipulating people to think it was not a test.

Sports/Recreation

Soccer,

Soccer

Soccer is one of the greatest ball-in-net sports. It originated in England and is gaining popularity else where. Teams of eleven pass the ball in a game of defense and attack to score points. One point is scored with each goal. There are two 45 minute halves. I played recreational soccer since age nine as well in high school and college (Division III). My best position is as left wing, however, I have experience in all positions of soccer. That makes a total of ten years playing soccer. This game takes talent but also preparation from the coaches and practice from the players.
Swimming

Swimming

Swimming is the practice of efficiently moving across the water. Usually people think of the front crawl when swimming comes up, but there is also back stroke, breaststroke, butterfly, elementary backstroke. Swimming is an Olympic sport that, when done correctly, is also beautiful. The first step with swimming is getting over the fear of water and to relax. I have no fear but a lot of respect for water. I learned swimming as a young child and was on a swim team by age 7. I swam competitively in high school and I have instructed swim lessons for 5 years through American Red Cross.
