Lycoming College (Spanish - Education)
Rochester Institute of Technology (Master's)
After completing my Bachelor's degree in Secondary Spanish Education, I taught high school students Spanish and English. After completing my Masters degree in Instructional Technology (it's an adult training degree), I trained hundreds of adults in many topics in a variety of industries. I love helping people learn. My most joyful moment will be to help you "get" material and concepts. Many of my former students have gone on to full and productive lives and when I hear from them they tell me how much our time together benefited them.
As I worked with all levels of employees in business, it was clear that those who expressed themselves effectively verbally and in writing definitely had an edge. It may not be fair that not knowing how to use an apostrophe correctly or whether "effect" or "affect" is correct, but the reality is, people are quietly judged on writing and even using correct spelling. The English language may not be fun, but it is something that can be "conquered" before you go on to bigger and more important ways to make a difference in the world.
First, we will get to know one another. That way, we can relate the concept(s) to something with which you are familiar. I'm interested in your hobbies, your favorite "You Tube" videos, your pets and so on.

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.
My BA is in secondary education and my MS is in Instructional Technology, but focused on learning. Having worked as a trainer for Human Resources Departments in multiple businesses, I've helped many employees determine what they want in their professional futures. I've used some of the common resources (e.g. "What Color is Your Parachute" | Myers Briggs assessment | DISC | etc.) to help them either re-direct or double down on their career choices.
I tutored immigrants (at work) for five years from having no English to them being able to converse and work comfortably.
