Lesson Details

Spanish

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate

I have tutored roughly 50 students in my tutoring career. I specialize in language, writing, Spanish for beginners, reading comprehension, vocabulary, writing research papers, science, mathematics from grades k-12, as well as college geometry and algebra, and many more subjects.
I cannot emphasize enough to be patient with yourself when understanding a new concept. It's okay to not get everything the first or second time around. Take your time and enjoy the process of learning. You are actually exercising your brain when you are challenged, which is wonderful! I also want the people I work with to know that I am VERY LGBTQ friendly, and support minorities as well as understand some of the challenges they may face. Anytime you are in my presence, you are in a safe place, and you will always be treated with dignity and respect.
Being a fluent Spanish speaker, I make Spanish a colorful, engaging, fun experience and pay a lot of attention to the student's needs, questions, strengths, and weaknesses. I incorporate a lot of repetition in my tutoring sessions as well because repetition is a very effective strategy in engraving a concept or language in your brain. The same applies for any learned skill. I have a lot of fun with students and definitely make my clients look forward to tutoring sessions.

Hey everyone. My name is Staci and I love meeting different students of different backgrounds and personalities. I have an Associates in Information Technology and am now pursing my bachelor's in the field, with a focus on programming. I am from Chicago so have almost seen it all. I excel in the field of communications and writing, and am also a freelance writer with several blogs of my own, and write for other blogs. I love writing research papers on various topics, especially on topics I am passionate about. I do creative writing and really have a good eye for art and film. In my spare time, I like to go to the gym, spend time with my fiance, canvas paint, and yes I even like to knit. Don't laugh at me. Music plays a major role in my life and know just about every R&B, soul, or hip-hop song that was released between the 80s-2000s.

I am the eldest of my siblings, and have a passion for teaching as much as I have a passion for learning. I have been tutoring since I was 8 years old, but did not monetize my tutoring skills until I was about 16 years old. Today, I am 25 and never get bored of finding different methods of teaching for individual students to help them achieve their academic or personal goals. I have tutored roughly 50 students in my tutoring career, more or less. I specialize in language, writing, Spanish for beginners, reading comprehension, vocabulary, writing research papers, science, mathematics from grades k-12, as well as college geometry and algebra, and many more subjects.

I cannot put enough emphasis on being patient with yourself when understanding a new concept. It's okay to not get everything the first or second time around. Take your time and enjoy the process of learning. You are actually exercising your brain when you are challenged, which is wonderful! I also want the people I work with to know that I am VERY LGBTQ friendly, and support minorities as well as understand some of the challenges they may face. Anytime you are in my presence, you are in a safe place, and you will always be treated with dignity.

Aside from being passionate about science for a few personal reasons, I actually aim to pursue medical school because of my passion for health and medicine. In case, for some reason I won't be able to do so, I have my bachelor's in an applied science to fall back on. Ultimately I would like to become an M.D working in the field of Preventative Medicine or become a surgeon I have written extensive research
