"I have now been teaching Spanish at the secondary level for 5 years, working at both the high school and middle school levels. I have recently become even more fired up about teaching Spanish due to a methodology called TPRS (Teaching Proficiency through Reading & Storytelling).

"I hope to pass this excitement on to my students, even if the subject isn't the easiest or the most exciting. I started tutoring during my Senior year in high school, and have been tutoring on the side ever since. In addition to tutoring on a regular basis, I also have a lot of experience helping out friends with subjects that they have difficulty with. I enjoy solving problems, so helping someone with an extra math problem or with editing their paper is always a welcome activity."

"I am currently pursuing a Master's of Education in math at Northwestern University, but my passion for learning and education long precedes my formal degree. Prior to returning to school, I worked in management consulting, where I often needed to explain complex quantitative analysis to clients unfamiliar with the math; this helped me develop the ability to understand and explain various approaches to quantitative concepts, which in turn enables me to identify and address causes of confusion.
