Jennifer "...I also tutor in reading, language and social studies up to 8th grade and some selective high school courses. I am completely bilingual and am able to tutor in Spanish through the high school level. My tutoring style is focused but understanding and very patient. I really take the time to make sure the student understands what he/she is working on. In my spare time I like to read and spend time with my family..."
Giselle "I am currently a grad student at HBU and I taught Kindergarten last year. I am dedicated to learning, and my educational philosophy is that every child can/will succeed given the right tools and encouragement. I have a significant amount of experience in elementary education; particularly in: reading, reading comprehension, and phonics as well as upper level ELA (English Language Arts): essay-writing, proofreading, and editing. My teaching style is very interactive and hands-on, my most important goal is to meet your student's needs..."
Judith "...This makes me specially qualified to share a wide range of cultural undertones and nuances from an insider's perspective. My tutoring method is to make language mean something to the student: make it relatable and practical. What is more relatable than speaking? What could connect people in a more effective way than language? Language makes love, art, science, sport and life possible. I teach language as a key to experiencing life itself..."
Rachel "...The experience I had with Varsity Tutors inspired me to return two years later as a tutor with the hope of assisting students in reaching their full potential and attaining their ultimate goals. I have ample experience with test preparation as I have personally taken the ISEE, HSPT, PSAT, SAT, and ACT. I am an avid reader and a passionate writer and am confident that I can help students improve in these areas given that I have already helped many friends and classmates with these subjects and have had experience tutoring as a member of The National Honor Society at St. Agnes Academy. My Human and Organizational Development major, which is designed to teach students how to find solutions to human problems in organizations and communities, has helped me cultivate and expand upon both my problem solving skills and my interpersonal skills..."

Jan "... I have found that what I truly love is helping others to succeed in any way that I can. I truly believe anyone can comprehend, speak, read and write Spanish. It is perfectly phonetic and it is spoken exactly the way it is written. It can be learned quite easily as long as it is explained properly. I travel as often as I can..."
Genine "...I also believe technology is an important part of learning Spanish and I utilize it whenever possible. Through the use of the worldwide web, a student can visit any country and even communicate with a Spanish native in a live Spanish chat room! Through the incredible world of learning Spanish, one gains an appreciation for another language and culture. My enthusiastic, cultural approach to teaching Spanish helps students acquire language skills in a way that keeps them motivated, interested and determined to continue learning the language. Not only has Spanish increased my ability to communicate and broadened my capabilities, my awareness of other cultures has made me a well-rounded individual who is capable of comfortably assimilating to almost any situation. Like Quintus Ennius, I also feel as if I have been blessed with having two souls through my bilingualism..."
Elizabeth "...I am also working with the Bonner Leaders Program and have certification in leadership through the Ted Bauer Leadership Certificate Program. I am volunteering at the Texas Children’s Hospital at the Medical Center learning about the practices and day-to-day work. I am currently developing a service-learning program called Honors in Community Health for the greater Houston area. My goal is to help inspire a passion and goal for Houston residents through the power of education..."
Mirna "...I have not stopped since. I specialize in Spanish because this is what I'm most passionate about. I love absolutely everything about the Spanish language and culture. I see myself as a facilitator of learning, and although I take teaching very seriously, I like to create a learning environment in which the students have fun and feel comfortable..."
