" More recent experiences include tutoring friends and college underclassmen in Spanish grammar and conversation. My teaching style is one very focused on detail.

A typical tutoring session with me typically involves as much talking as listening, particularly with my students learning Spanish. I enjoy building a good rapport and working towards goals I have for myself as a tutor, as well as those my students have for themselves.." ...
