"The best compliment a student gave me was "I feel much more confident speaking English now than when we started." That confidence will make the student a lifelong learner and will transcend into other subjects. I am also an experienced learner! I have a degree in biochemistry and Spanish from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. This means I am qualified to teach biology, chemistry, algebra, geometry, and Spanish.

"In the more immediate future, I hope to achieve a master’s degree in international relations. My studies have provided me the knowledge and skills to be a useful tutor not only in political science and international studies, but also history, English, writing, American politics and government, research, and literature.

I have recently become even more fired up about teaching Spanish due to a methodology called TPRS (Teaching Proficiency through Reading & Storytelling).

" 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 ...

"Mainly I worked with high school students and adults, but outside of schools I have worked with children of all ages. My main tutoring subjects, in addition to being my biggest interests, are German, Spanish, History, Geography, and Earth Sciences and I'm always excited to help others learn about them.
