Kalamazoo College Grad (2020) and Current Masters of Education Student - Looking for Spanish Tutoring Position

Methodology

What is most important to me is that students enjoy what they are learning, and that they find intrinsic motivation to continue their learning. I am willing to work with any age of student and teach them whatever material they are interested in learning; what I think is crucial, though, is that they feel successful and engaged.

Background

I graduated from Kalamazoo College in June 2020 with a BA in Spanish Language and Literature, as well as in music. I am now pursuing my Masters of Education degree at Grand Valley State University, and plan to teach K-12 music. I have been tutoring Spanish students off and on since high school. I studied abroad in Ecuador during my junior year of college for 7 months, and I taught at a local school there. I also tutored at a bilingual Spanish/English elementary school in Kalamazoo during my senior year. I love working with kids, and I love the Spanish language, so I would love any type of Spanish tutoring job!
