Hello, my name is Elara. I am a college student trying to make money by tutoring. Learning is one of my favorite things!
I've taken French for 16 years, and am fluent! I am available to help at almost any level. I'm also available to help with/teach Spanish at beginning and intermediate levels.
I was born in Uruguay and raised in Argentina before moving to the United States for college. While I was here, I tutored Spanish to a variety of learners varying from ages 5-70. I have taught over 100 students privately, have led over 10 small group classes, and have taught for the public school system for three www.*** ;I find languages to be fascinating. Each language is shaped and formed by its culture. The culture infiltrates its grammatical structure, pronunciation, and idiomatic expressions. I love discovering how each language represents the culture it was born in, how it evolved over time, or how it is currently changing in its sub-cultures. I have a love for my language and want to impart it to others who desire to learn it. I want your experience to be enjoyable and profitable. I want to encourage you in this process, to encourage you to go a little farther than you have before, and to help you understand and make sense of this beautiful language. What I love most about teaching this language is when I see students’ eyes light up because they have grasped a new concept and are naturally excited by this new understanding. I love watching my students be proud of the work that they have done and the ways in which they have improved. I hope to be able to provide a dynamic in which you can fully grasp the Spanish language.
I have been tutoring for 2 years for free at the federal way library. I volunteer at the children's museum in Tacoma and I have an internship at an elementary school. I have experience with AP classes, honors, and pre-ap classes in high school. My schedule is very flexible.
I can help with English essays, improving punctuation, grammar, etc. mathematics up to algebra 1 (I have taken pre-calculus), homework, standardized testing prep and can also teach piano. I am Vietnamese and have also taken Spanish 3, so I can help with basic Vietnamese and Spanish. I tutor peers at my school during lunch and am able to explain concepts to help them understand. As a high school student, I am able to easily connect with people and will do my best.
I would like to teach Spanish, take care of children, playing games and help with homework.
I am 24 yrs and I have 4 years of experience (babysitting and tutoring) in different subjects.
Hi, I’m Colleen!
I recently graduated cum laude from Princeton with a BA in Sociology. I'm open to traditional tutoring for grades 3-12 as well as providing oversight while your kids partake in virtual schooling. I'm patient and willing to try a variety of different approaches, as I understand that we don't all learn the same way!
-One-on-one or groups up to 3. I can work directly your child, or can instead provide oversight and guidance as they navigate distanced learning.
-I believe communication is important! I’ll provide informal written progress reports to parents every few weeks so that we’re on the same page.
-Open to virtual tutoring on the platform of your choice. If you’re in or near Capitol Hill, Seattle and think in-person tutoring would be best, let’s talk-- maybe we can come up with a safe arrangement!
-My schedule is flexible!
When I was in third grade, I delighted in creating homework packets for my younger sister and parents. Now, I am a recent Princeton grad with a major in Sociology and a minor in Spanish Language & Culture. I have experience tutoring one-on-one lower-level math (fifth and ninth grade), and always loved watching a concept finally click when we drew a visual representation of the problem together. I have also volunteered as a homework helper for an after-school program in which I worked across a variety of subjects, mostly with first and fifth graders, and have mentored a local eighth grader through the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. Related experience involves living with a three-year old (who honestly tutored ME in Spanish) when I studied abroad two years ago, and facilitating entry into college life for first-year Princeton students through guided conversations and community service as an orientation leader.
