About Lawrence

I am a 24-year-old college student (and I will always be a student) studying Business Administration - Marketing. I recently completed Cambridge's CELTA course, giving me an understanding of how to help English learners effectively. We taught classes to people actually trying to learn English. In one of our assignments, we had to focus on one of our students and recognize lingual differences and help our learner overcome a pronunciation problem and a grammar problem. My learner was from Venezuela, so after great research, I was able to identify problems typical for those who speak Spanish and Catalan. I also have other resources available that can help me identify problems typical to those from other backgrounds (i.e., Russian, Chinese, Punjabi, et cetera). I took Latin for two years in high school and recently began learning German in college, so I understand the difficulties that a new speaker is undertaking and can help break things down for them easier.

I participated in many sports in high school and was part of the student council. I created an organization in college called the All Student Alliance and helped tutor peers. This means that I have experience tutoring and an understanding of organization. I have a strong understanding of chess and can teach the basics of it (rules, piece moves, special moves like castling and en passant, and the like) along with general strategy. I have some experience with photography and photo manipulation with photoshop, though I didn't place these under my profile as I don't yet understand all of the nuances of photoshop. If you would like to see if my understanding is sufficient for your needs, contact me asking for some samples and I can e-mail you some. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to ask. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
