Ohio State University (Education)
University of Akron (Master's)
Hello! I am a certified teacher (BS in Edu from Ohio State University) with 20 years of experience in the classroom from 7th grade - university level. I graduated with specializations in English & Spanish. In addition, I hold a masters degree in Spanish (University of Akron), and have taught Spanish at the high school & college levels. In addition, I have studied in Spain, worked with people from all over Latin America & worked in Spanish in industry for 12 years. How did I rank as a teacher? I have always received top performance evaluations from students / administrators for being able to connect with students, explain the material clearly & tie it to real life. In addition, I like to bring humor into the lesson & I always help students understand how they must think to learn the material better.
Although I take joy in helping anyone succeed, I take particular joy in helping students who are capable of learning the material but need help in learning how to do so.
I hold myself to high standards, and always have. In order to help you better, I expect you to tell me exactly where you think you need help. I would expect you to do that before we meet so we can use tutoring time profitably. And, I will ask for your feedback at the end of each session. Finally, I expect you to make a good-faith effort to pull yourself along. I cannot push water up hill! You must be willing to listen, learn & do what you need to do. You see, I want you to succeed!
My cancellation policy is 24 hrs. And, I expect you to cancel (or work via Skype) if you're sick.
Know that if you're interested in learning & are willing to do what it takes, I can help you.

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.
