About Terry

I am a graduate of Christopher Newport University (CNU) where I majored in Spanish and minored in Philosophy and Religious studies. All four years at CNU I competed on the Varsity Soccer Team and I learned the important skills necessary to excel in the classroom and on the field. I feel that success in academics and athletics is easily relatable and that one does not have to compromise the other. In my third year at CNU I spent a semester in Sevilla, Spain where I had my first real taste of linguistic immersion. I enjoyed the experience so much that I moved back to Spain following graduation to be an English teacher. When I look back on my time learning Spanish in the classroom and in Spain I understand the key elements of language that do not always get taught in the classroom or from a textbook.
As a tutor I can help students that may need more in depth explanations than what is available in a Spanish course. One of my strengths as a Spanish tutor is my ability to relate to the student in their journey to understanding Spanish because I have climbed the mountain myself. The level of fluency in Spanish that I have reached through my studies and travels have not come without much work and frustration and I love to help students get over obstacles that I once faced. I also currently work part time tutoring ESL students in my county school system. Outside of tutoring I love playing soccer or golf and learning the guitar. I love reading and find my reading list split between random Spanish literature and philosophical and religious texts. Education is something I care deeply about and I believe it holds tremendous power in who we are and what we will become. I take pride in being able to be a part of a student's education because I know the importance that all my teachers and tutors played in my education and my life.

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.

Religion

I minored in religious studies at Christopher Newport University. I studied western and eastern religions as well as ancient and modern philosophy. My strength is in abrahamic religion but I am also knowledgable in many other religions.

Series 63

I have passed both the Series 6 and 63. I can provide proof of passing. My tutoring abilities are based on having study materials and experience studying and taking the exams. I also use the knowledge in my full time position as a financial representative at a financial planning firm.
