Approved subjects

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.

Spanish

I have studied Spanish for nearly a decade, beginning in high school through college and into my post-graduate program. During my undergraduate degree at Aquinas College, I took the opportunity to spend two semesters abroad in Spain and Costa Rica. In the past I have taken courses in Spanish for the medical and business professions and worked as an interpreter in a medical clinic and public school system. I am currently studying Spanish literature and culture in a Master's program at the University of New Mexico, where I continue to cultivate my language expertise.
