Experience

I am a fluent Spanish speaker, having spent a good amount of time in South America, both working and traveling. I have tutored Spanish and English for more than two years, and prefer an immersion style. This means that our 90-minute sessions are usually taught entirely in Spanish or English. Additionally, having studied creative writing, I am able to help in all forms of essays and other writing projects. These include expository, research, persuasive, creative, and college admission essays. Structure is the primary concern with this type of writing, something that I excel at teaching. More than just editing students' essays for them, I like to teach them editing methods that they can take with them through the course of their academic career. I focus on strengthening their writing and helping them to find their voice. I have also worked as an anthropologist, traveling to Gujarat, India, to do ethnographic research. My research focused on religion and society. I am able to tutor on this subject as well, as I am very knowledgeable about Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Judaism, and Christianity, and can relate them to perspectives of social science.
