"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). This essentially means that learning is fun and more effortless for students and they are able to more effectively USE the language (read, speak, listen, write).."

" Chicago was suddenly too big and crowded for our tastes, and we wanted to live in closer proximity to the great outdoors. Since moving, I have continued to pursue educational opportunities. My current projects involve designing and teaching public speaking courses for Wedgwood children, providing volunteer homework support for refugees at the Somali Community Service Coalition, and working with Varsity Tutors. In the future, I hope to obtain my master's and doctorate, work in public education or museum studies, and teach History at the college level, for it is my belief that understanding our actions in the past is essential to ...

"I have developed a genuine love of learning and wish to ignite that same fire in other students through tutoring. Two of my favorite subjects are biology and French. Biology is the science of life from the tiny molecular interactions occurring in the body and atmosphere to the history of life on Earth, it fascinates me to no end. The French have such an established culture, so refined and known for authors, poets, chefs, fashion designers and so much more."

"One of the things I enjoyed most was meeting with these groups of students outside of the classroom to work on their business plans, practice their presentations, and help them work through any challenges and feel confident about their work and preparation for the competitions. I have a variety of teaching and training experiences in different contexts. After receiving my bachelors degree in Business Administration from Truman State University, I joined a team of trainers at a financial services company, Edward Jones. I worked with adult professionals to help them obtain their Series 7 licensure." ...

In addition, for the last nine years or so, I have studied Spanish. Since freshman year of high school, I have studied Spanish each year, building on the foundation I built in the previous year.
