I gained extensive experience teaching children, youth, and adults in both classroom and informal environments as a Peace Corps Volunteer. I prefer using interactive lessons rather than teaching directly from a book. I am highly adaptable to the needs of individual students and am happy to modify lesson plans to best fit the learning style of the student.
I have an excellent command of written and spoken Spanish, as demonstrated by my ACTFL certification as a Superior Spanish-speaker. I am also a strong writer and editor, having scored very well on the SAT Writing test. Furthermore, I received a prize for best Senior Essay in my major at Wesleyan University. I truly enjoy passing on my strategies and advice for academic and test-taking excellence to others. As a tutor, I explain problems and concepts thoroughly and treat students with patience and understanding.
