About Ivan

I am currently in my fourth year in my Bachelor's degree career. I graduated from a prestigious private high school, CSAA in Humacao, PR. My major is in modern languages, I have always been fluent in English and showed above average grammar in the subject throughout high school. I have also been studying Portuguese for two years now and feel quite confident about my grammar and pronunciation in this language as well

I have experience teaching for 2 months at an internship under AIESEC, in El Penol, Department of Antioquia, Colombia. I taught grade school students between ages 12 and 15 mostly but also high schoolers between ages 16 and 17.

All of these classes were in groups, but I did give around four hourly sessions to a single student who could not attend the group class. The results were quite satisfying as they could better comprehend the basics after taking classes from me. I like to read a lot and I am a little perfectionist when it comes to writing the right way. I am quite friendly and responsible with other people and I will always try my best when it comes to helping someone understand something they don't get.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Grammar

I taught various classes in Colombia, during an internship with AIESEC. They were mostly grade schoolers but I did teach High schoolers. Even though it was difficult I always tried my hardest at teaching them perfect grammar and correct pronunciation. At the end, I got surprising results and life-long friendships

Martial Arts

Presently, I have two years in experience in competitive taekwondo and one year training in an academy. I also have 2 years in brazilian jujitsu. Presently, my highest rank is in hapkido, purple belt and green belt in taekwondo. For the last year I have been helping my professor with his classes and been teaching kids of age under 10 to defend themselves. I believe I have the qualifications to tutor in this area because of my experiences with children and open- view of different martial arts

Portuguese

My major is in modern languages and my main language is Portuguese. I have been taking classes for two years now with native-speaking professors. I am best at pronunciation

Spanish

I am from Puerto Rico so spanish is my native tongue. I have taken at least three literature classes at the University. I am fairly good at grammar in this subject.
