EducationI am excited to spend this summer teaching others before I begin law school at UNC-Chapel Hill in the fall of 2017.
I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with an International Studies major and Spanish minor. I graduated with honors (Cum Laude), distinction, and a 3.6 GPA. I was on the Dean's list from fall 2009 - 2012.
ExperienceI am passionate about helping others achieve their learning goals and always adapt my teaching style to the needs of my student.
-I have studied Spanish for 14 years and completed a Spanish minor in college.
-I studied abroad in Spain, obtaining 12 credit hours from la Universidad de Oviedo.
-I have worked as a Spanish bilingual healthcare advocate, and I have expanded my Spanish vocabulary to communicate with local Latinos of various countries.
-I have provided over 80 hours of volunteer Spanish interpretation for local non-profit agencies.
-I have tutored over 12 students in Spanish from ages 7 to 31.
My approach to Spanish tutoring: I am a strong believer in helping my students developing their reading, writing, and speaking abilities through interactions and understanding of Spanish and Latin American cultures. I hope to offer well-rounded Spanish tutoring to my future students by helping them explore not only language but history and culture through their language practices. I am also very flexible in my approach and can tailor my sessions to my students' needs.
English and writing experience:
-I successfully completed an undergraduate honors thesis.
-I received a 730 on the Verbal section of my SAT and a 5 on my AP English exam.
-I tutored Spanish university students in English.
- I tutored recently immigrated Latino adults in English.
-I was raised speaking Farsi and completed 7 classes of reading and writing in Farsi, some of which I studied in Iran.
-I have tutored 4 students in Farsi ranging from ages 11 - 33.
HobbiesI love physical fitness of all kinds including: yoga, tae kwon do (I have a black belt), and capoeira (a Brazilian martial art).
I love learning languages. I am fluent in Spanish and Farsi/Persian. I have basic proficiency in French and I am currently studying Portuguese.
I love to travel. I have travelled to Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, Canada, Portugal, England, France, Ireland, the Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic, Hungary, Greece, Turkey, and Iran. I studied Spanish during my travels in Cuba, Mexico, Colombia, Chile, and Spain. I recently visited Brazil and studied Portuguese.
Although I am a proud native Charlottean, I have learned the importance of having diverse language, cultural, and travelling experiences. I look forward to sharing this with you or your child.
