I love teaching kids how to engage with literature and writing. I believe that learning to identify with characters in a book, or really learning to express yourself on paper can lead to a healthier personality. Writing effectively is also a skill that can help you no matter what career path you choose, even if you're not passionately into writing. Bringing kids into an understanding about how to effectively communicate in speech and writing is a passion of mine.
I have a minor certificate in Spanish Language and Literature and 10+ years of communication in speech and writing in the Spanish language.
I have a degree in English Language and Literature. I own my own small business where public speaking/sales is incredibly important and I also regularly put on workshops for that business which requires clear, effective communication. I also write my own marketing materials and grant applications, so my writing has to be impeccable.
As for experience actually teaching, I currently homeschool my three children and have experience with motivated and unmotivated learners. I have been tutoring since 5th grade, when I would go down into the lower grades and help younger children with their reading skills. In high school and college I would help my peers with their writing skills. As an adult I got a job training adults on how to engage people in their community. We would go door to door to talk about environmental issues. I taught them how to put together a speech, what some important factors were in keeping people engaged, and how to tell if people were understanding or lost in what they were saying.
If you are struggling with reading and writing, or communicating effectively in an academic or social setting please contact me. Being a good communicator can give you the edge when it comes to getting or keeping a job.

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.
