I am a recent graduate from the State University of New York at Oswego with a BA in Spanish and minors in both French and International Business.
During my years at Oswego, I spent a lot of my time getting involved with the Modern Languages Department and finding opportunities to work with the language firsthand. In my sophomore year, I reintroduced the chapter of the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society on my campus and became president of the society that same year. In my junior year of college, I studied abroad in Spain at the Universidad de Salamanca for a semester. This past summer, I worked with many native Spanish-speakers from Mexico, Argentina and Spain at Concordia Language Villages in Minnesota.
I also have ample experience in tutoring and teaching. In my second year at Oswego, I worked for the Office of Learning Services as a Spanish and French tutor and was a Teaching Assistant for an elementary French class. During this time, I would frequently meet up with students both in groups and one-on-one sessions and work with them in a way that met their learning needs. My philosophy as a tutor has always been to create a comfortable learning environment for my students and build their confidence in speaking the target language. Foreign language has always been a passion of mine, and I am excited to work with students to help them achieve their goals with the language!
