University of Virginia (Finance)
I have extensive experience teaching, speaking, writing, and learning Spanish. In High School, I got a 5 on the AP Spanish exam and a perfect score on the subject test (even native speakers struggle to do this). I am also certified by the Spanish Government's Department of Education, Sport, and Culture as a proficient speaker and writer of Spanish. As you can see I'm very passionate about the Spanish language. While learning Spanish, I read spanish news for fun (not kidding) and seized every opportunity I had to speak more.
I am an Echols scholar at the University of Virginia, and plan to study Finance and computer science. I am also proficient in Chinese and my mother tongue, Tamil ( a south Indian language) , and am currently learning French, so language learning is a huge skill and passion of mine.
Since I live on UVA's campus, I prefer to meet my students close to the University. We can meet in any of UVA's libraries, coffee shops, or any other place the student chooses. My students will get great Spanish tutoring and a chance to view UVA's beautiful grounds. If location does not work out, I can still tutor through a videoconferencing service like Skype.
For my AP Spanish tutoring - While I do provide effective learning techniques and useful resources, I will still assign a sizable amount of work. This is because I want my students to be "Spanish machines". I want them to be able to digest Spanish literature, listen to Spanish news, and write intelligently.

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.
