Hi! I'm an energetic, patient, qualified tutor with a B.A. in English and a Spanish minor. I have over eight years of teaching and tutoring experience:
Teaching private piano and guitar lessons for 8 years
Have sung with both volunteer and professional touring choirs; private voice lessons in college
Teaching elementary Spanish grades 1-8
Teaching a private Spanish class to four elementary students
Leading private conversation sessions with intermediate Spanish students in college
Private Spanish tutoring on the intermediate college level
Tutor in college writing center
Online encouragement/critique of teen writing for Scholastic, Inc.'s website WriteIt
* T.A. for an integrated humanities class focusing on literature, visual art, philosophy, and history; I work as a liaison between professors and students, grade quizzes and essays, lead discussions, and tutor students.
I have also taught first and second grade phonics and worked as an elementary classroom aide.
In college, I've been recommended as a tutor for Spanish, biology, humanities, and linguistics classes.
My SAT math score is 690, critical reading is 760, and I scored an 800 on the writing both times I took it, so I am happy to help prepare students for especially the verbal portions of the SAT.
I'm sure that you know as well as I do that mastery of subject material and even extensive experience does not necessarily mean someone will be a good tutor. I can tell you that what matters most to me is seeing the 'light bulb' go off in a student's eyes, and becoming not just a teacher but a friend and cheerleader as they seek to improve. My passion is finding a way to make something that seems scary more accessible and understandable - what I think of as translating a subject into learn-able terms.
