Private tutor in Oak Park, MI
Southern University and A & M College - BA, Spanish , Wayne State University - MA, Teaching Foreign Language
I am a student with extensive experience studying and teaching Spanish and English. I graduated from Southern University with a bachelor's degree in Spanish. I also received a master's degree in teaching a foreign language from Wayne State University. I have over twenty years of experience teaching in the Detroit Public School system. I struggled with Spanish all throughout high school, but I decided to try it again in college. This was a great decision because I was finally able to learn the language in college. This experience has helped me a great deal because it allows me to encourage my students even when they are struggling. My philosophy as a tutor emphasizes developing a personal relationship with my students and then finding out what learning style will be the most effective for them. I also focus on helping my students build confidence and providing an environment where the student feels comfortable asking questions. I believe that languages are a unique part of our society. Thus, it is not surprising that each student has a unique way of learning new languages. In my free time, I like to travel abroad, collect Barbie dolls, cook, entertain guests, and watch the news.
