Learning is a daily endeavor, no? I have always been a student. I was, in fact, a student who needed one-on-one instruction throughout high school. I had the same math tutor for all four years and I think of her every time I tutor a student. She was kind, patient and empathetic. She was not arrogant and she welcomed my learning style by modifying her lessons so I could grasp difficult concepts without the stress of a noisy classroom--she taught me how to reduce distraction, listen constructively and to relax and allow the learning process to reach my brain. I began tutoring writing, English and Spanish my first year of undergraduate studies and I have been tutoring every since.
I first taught Spanish to university students in 1998 while serving as a teaching assistant at the University of New Hampshire. Independently building and instructing a novice Spanish class while being challenged as a student transformed my perceptions of both roles. I am committed to studying my student and/or audience and its distinct character, especially concerning its studying methods, strengths, weaknesses and frustration levels. These efforts result in a comfortable atmosphere that promotes active participation. Students engage in relevant discussions and respond to new material with enthusiasm sparked by personal interest.
Whatever your struggle or endeavor, I am open to helping you succeed and I look forward to it.
