EducationI am an English Education major with a minor in Spanish at Southern Utah University and I am a Junior. I took American Sign Language at SUU as well. I learned Portuguese in Portugal for a year and a half and I love learning and teaching languages.
ExperienceI have done some personal tutoring at SUU in Spanish 1010, American Sign Language 1010 and English 1010 and 2010.
My past experience includes mentoring young children (big brother/big sister program), working with a summer program for children with disorders such as Autism, ADHD and ADD. I also worked at a rest home for a summer.
I served a mission for my church in Portugal where I taught English to the Portuguese people, learned Portuguese and served the people there for a year and a half.
Right now I am working at TURN Community Services which is a support for people with disabilities. I work one on one with people every day to help them live normal lives and I love it.
I have taken EDUC 2000 (exploring education in society)and EDUC 3170 (Instructional technology). I have also taken SPED 3030 (Foundations of Special Education.
I want to be a teacher and the best way to become a good one is by learning how to teach. I have already learned a lot about teaching through studying and some experience, but I know that there is a lot more to learn. I love being able to help others where they need it and seeing them progress.
I want to tutor because I enjoy helping individual students to succeed at their own level through finding out how they learn and helping them understand the subjects that they may have questions about.
HobbiesI love the outdoors--hiking, biking, camping and just about anything else. I am willing to try almost anything at least once. I love the theater and have assistant-directed a few community plays in my home town. I love to read and write. I also enjoy singing, acting and speaking different languages.
