About Jovantae

My name is Jovantae and I am 25 years old. I have graduated with my Masters of Social Work from California State University Beach, but my passion is tutoring languages, particularly Spanish and English.

In terms of Spanish, I grew up in a predominately Latino neighborhood, so I felt the need to learn Spanish.I took about 5 years of coursework in Spanish and knew how to study the language and my grades were great. However, I was not fully satisfied with my ability to maintain conversations with people outside of the classroom. I took it upon myself to self-study using YouTube clips and online resources, but I was not growing at a pace I desired; I wanted to be fluent. Finally, I decided to travel to Mexico and I ended up living with a native Spanish speaker who expanded my Spanish conversation skills and with whom I taught English. I then worked at a bilingual call center for a year, taking about 60 Spanish calls daily, which improved my listening and my formal verbal skills. Today, I consider myself bilingual.

The path I took to become bilingual was long and arduous, but I discovered several techniques that could have cut my time shorter. I desire to share those techniques with people who have doubts that they can become fluent in a second language, whether it is English or Spanish. I love learning languages, and I am inspired to help boost people’s confidence in language learning without having to go through the process I went through. I an aware of the “ins and outs” of being a student as well as a tutor of a language and I learned that patience, practicality, and personalization is the key for creative effect lesson plans. Whether you just want to increase your grades, pass a test, obtain a bilingual job, or just communicate with people from a different culture, you can start your language-learning journey with me.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I went to Viet Nam for six months to teach English to doctors for children with Autism common phrases and pronunciation. During this time, I also taught a kindergarten class the basic numbers, letters, and words. Finally I hosted an English club at a coffee shop to teach community members how to construct proper arguments in topics of their interest. Outside of Viet Nam, I have three years of tutoring English online for free to Spanish-speaking learners in exchange for improving my Spanish.

Spanish

I took three years of Spanish course work in high school and two years of Spanish coursework in my undergraduate years. I have tutored Spanish online for two years. I worked in the bilingual field taking calls in Spanish and tutored Spanish to fellow co-workers who desired to also take bilingual Spanish calls for one-year.
