I am a Senior at Montclair State, currently studying Spanish Literature. I come from Peru, so Spanish is my first language. I decided to pursue a college education in the language to master it in an advanced level. My passions in life are writing and teaching. I discovered my skills in teaching when I started tutoring children in English and several other subjects every vacation that I went back home. I've also tutored adults in ESL classes and some classmates in Spanish. Languages are my forte but I enjoy helping kids with their homework as well. This past summer I covered for a TA in first grade and helped the students in every subject. I personally liked every situation in which I was able to encourage artistic activities such as painting, acting, and singing. I am a fan of theatre and have studied acting before, and I am confident that it is essential to every child's learning experience to find a space for expression.
Teaching is a job I truly enjoy doing because I find it so rewarding to share my knowledge for the benefit of another person. It also comes naturally to me because I am a very patient person. Since elementary school I've always been on the other side and I have a very clear picture of how the tutor is supposed to act towards the student. I am constantly refining my teaching skills. My philosophy is to explain as many times as needed and not leave until it is all cleared; usually I rely on visual aids. Also, I believe it is important for students to realize the information on their own instead of giving them the answers easily. However, I adapt according to the circumstances, depending on the age, subject, and special needs.
