I have been actively studying Spanish for ten years now and I have loved every step of this journey. Studying Spanish has brought me on a mission trip to Ecuador, a study abroad program in Chile, and now, a tutoring position. I am currently finishing my third year at North Central College in Naperville, IL and am pursuing my Bachelors of Arts in Spanish and Global Studies, with a concentration on developing states. After graduation, I hope to continue my education and receive my Masters in Spanish Translation and enter the field of international nonprofit work.

I love tutoring Spanish, especially in preparation for traveling abroad. I've had the opportunity to use my Spanish internationally, during a four and a half month study abroad program in Chile. I took Spanish language classes, conducted an independent research project, traveled all throughout Chile, and lived with a host family. Because of this trip, I have practical experience using Spanish in a real-life setting and feel comfortable preparing students to use their Spanish in daily life or an academic setting.

While Spanish is my primary subject, I also enjoy literature, English, and writing and have excelled in these subjects in my own academic experience. I currently tutor Spanish to fellow students at my university and have also tutored a wide range of subjects while I was in high school. I teach based on three main principles - patience, persistence, and practice. I believe in the importance of being patient and empathetic when tutoring because certain subjects do not always come easily to students. However, by approaching a topic with patience and empathy, students will see progress. I also believe that persisting even when a subject becomes confusing is key to mastery. I hope to support students with lots of practice - I aways emphasize the real world importance and application of each topic and use lots of examples and practice problems to guide students through confusing material.

When I'm not studying, I love to spend my free time reading mystery and travel novels, going on long bike rides, trying new foods, playing with my cat, and practicing my newfound interest in yoga!
