I graduated from the University of Georgia with a B.A. in Spanish and am passionate about helping other students learn the language! I have tutored student-athletes through the UGA Athletic Association, and have seen dramatic improvements in students' ability to understand Spanish grammar, mechanics and usage, as well as read, write, and speak in Spanish. I love seeing students get excited as they grasp the language and no longer find it frustrating or confusing!
I am also passionate about helping students improve their SAT scores (specifically the Critical Reading and Writing sections), and I love editing essays. I have edited countless essays throughout my academic career--essays for specific classes, college applications, and even job applications. I love taking someone's writing and helping them rephrase sentences, fix grammatical errors, and ensure the most effective communication of ideas. When tutoring for the SAT, I help lessen students' anxiety by teaching them proven test-taking strategies and material specific to the SAT Critical Reading and Writing sections. I will continue to review the material and practice strategies with the student until he/she feels fully confident! I am very conscientious and thorough, and no matter what subject I'm tutoring, I will do everything in my power to help a student understand the material and gain confidence! I will put in time and effort to stay up to date on applicable material/ information, and I will work with each student to tailor my teaching to his/her learning style. I look forward to working with you!
