About Jimena

I am a Colombian Anthropologist but I studied in England, there I pursued a master's degree in Social Anthropology and Museum Studies. Currently, I am finishing my PhD in History at the University of Texas at Austin. At UT I am a Teaching Assistant which allows me to be in touch with students almost on a daily basis. I have taught Spanish to children and adults for several years. I can also be a tutor for Social Sciences and Anthropology, and have a long experience in the publishing field since I am a translator from English to Spanish and Spanish to English

One of my passions is to see how people learn and get confident about their progress. When students discover how easy it is to know something new their enthusiasm makes the sessions a lot of fun. The sense of accomplishment this provides is also great.

My schedule is flexible and I am willing to discuss your needs in detail in order to know exactly what you want and expect. Let me know what do you wish to achieve and together we will come up with a successful plan. Do not hesitate to contact me for more information and to let me know what are you looking for.

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.

Anthropology

I did five years in college, B.A., in Anthropology in Colombia and my undergraduate thesis became a book about the history of Anthropology in Colombia and South America. My master´s degree was obtained in the University of Cambridge, UK, in Social Anthropology with special emphasis in Museums. My master´s degree thesis is also published in a Colombian magazine.

I´ve been an Anthropology teacher in several Colombian universities, four, so I can help people understand what this subject is about. I have taught Anthropology to Architects, Biologists, Historians, Anthropologists, Nurses, Psychologists, Journalists, and many other careers. I have also taught Anthropology in high schools.

I have published several papers about my career and currently I am invited to participate in two international congresses of Anthropology.

I can teach history and development of Anthropology and all the aspects related to methodology and fieldwork, also why and how Anthropology is a different area from Philosophy, Sociology, and Social Work.

Social Studies

As an Anthropologist I have s strong background in Social Sciences.

Since I have been a teacher for many people with different knowledge of what is Anthropology I have had to find the most effective way to let them know what this subject is about and why it is different from the other Social Sciences. For this reason I have had to adapt Anthropology to the specific needs of other areas. I can make people understand how Anthropology will be a great tool in their work and lives. I have done this at a high school level and at a college level.

I have been a lecturer of Anthropology for seven years and I also am frequently invited to give special talks about the nature and object of Anthropology for non anthropologists. I have been a teacher of Cultural Diversity and Pre-Social Sciences for students that don´t know what to study yet and need more information.

Spanish

I am a Colombian Spanish tutor, I can teach either children and adults. I am very patient, easy to understand, and will make the lessons fun so people can learn Spanish easily.

Spanish is very easy language to learn you just need the right tutor to guide you and tell you the best way to get where you want to be.

Very Effective and Innovative

I'm very pleased with the progress our daughters have made with their Spanish lessons and they both display an increased level of confidence in their ability to understand Spanish. Jimena's teaching method is very effective for them because she invested the time to understand their personal interests. She also incorporated their interests in her lesson plans and she assigns homework regularly; w
