About Heidi

Hello Students and Parents!

I am a graduate of the University of South Carolina where I received a Spanish degree in 2015. I am fluent in Spanish and have successfully tutored undergraduate as well as middle and high school students. I currently am employed full time by the University of South Carolina where I work for a non profit in the Arnold School of Public Health that serves the Latino community in South Carolina. I am nearly finished with my Master's of Public Health at USC as well.
I have lived in Santiago, Chile and Madrid, Spain and have experienced cultural differences first-hand. I have a passion for the language and love to express that with my students.

Many students feel frustrated with the approach their classroom teachers use and need the one-on-one approach I can offer which makes a huge difference. Repetition and vocabulary building is crucial to learning a language, as well as trying to speak in the target language as much as possible.

I also am able to tutor English, reading, grammar, and spelling. I have worked for Legacy, an organization that provides tutoring services to Lexington County elementary school students. These students have made great progress in reading and spelling when I have worked with them. South Carolina state standards are used in order to help students make progress on state testing throughout the year.

I don't have a specific tutoring method because each student's learning style varies. I try to identify that style as quickly as possible and use that in order to achieve the best results. Tutoring in a public quiet area such as library study rooms are where I choose to conduct sessions. I promise to be as flexible as possible when scheduling appointments with students and parents, however I do ask that appointments be cancelled the night prior to the session at the latest.

I look forward to working with you as you progress through your education and hope to work with you soon!
