StevenI began tutoring while I was a junior. I tutored for two years at the Franklin and Marshall College Writing Center. I assisted students on a variety of writing assignments in many different disciplines. I am skilled in all stages of the writing process. I worked with students and taught them how to brainstorm different ideasÂ and evaluate the logic of their arguments, as well as taught them how to check for grammatical and spelling errors. From my experiences, I know that listening to my students first, before questioning them is one of the signs of a great tutor, and that is what I strive to be. Using this method, the student is allowed to show their exact understanding of the subject and the assignments before me, as their tutor, can make assumptions of what they know. As a result, I can create an individual learning plan that will focus on each student's individual needs. I welcome opportunities to work with new students and help them improve their writing skills. In addition to writing, I also offer tutoring in European and United States history. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing baseball, and traveling to new places.

JorgelinaI've taught in a bilingual classroom for nine years. During this time, I've taught prekindergarten, first grade, and third grade, and I worked with gifted students as well as students who were struggling below the current grade level. I've been able to work with many students from diverse backgrounds. When I work with students, I focus on their individual needs, and I encourage them to develop critical thinking skills. I also adapt my teaching strategy to match the way they learn, and I draw on many different resources to help students learn effectively. Being a teacher in a bilingual classroom is a special challenge, but it's very engaging and motivating as well. Bilingual students need special attention in the learning process, and I enjoy providing that. Some may excel in certain parts of their native language and need help in their second language with fluency. For example, a student may have very strong speaking skills in their native tongue, but they haven't mastered grammar or spelling. On the other hand, they may struggle to speak their second language while they are proficient in writing it. Every student is different, so it's up to the teacher to identify these learning needs and address them.

BridgetteI'm a Spanish tutor has had the opportunity to work across all age groups and all levels of ability. I've even assisted native Spanish speakers who needed improvements in their grammar and spelling. I most familiar with the Mexican variety of Spanish since I grew up around that, but I've also had the opportunity to study abroad in Spain, so I'm proficient in Castilian Spanish as well. I attended UC - Riverside for my undergraduate degree in languages, literature, and linguistics. I then went on to Webster University where I earned a master's degree in international relations. I enjoy helping students improve their understanding of anything in Spanish, including test preparation, conversation, reading, preparing for a trip, or even distinguishing accents. I'm here to help students with whatever it is they need. I also speak some Korean thanks to my experience as a Marine Corps linguist, and can help students with that.
