Tutoring sessions are intended for 100 and 200 level language students and offer a low-anxiety environment in which to ask questions, prepare for exams and discuss concerns one-on-one with a peer tutor.
Some of our peer tutors offer individual appointments! See below for more information.
The fine print: Please be aware that tutors cannot help you write your compositions, as receiving help from a more advanced student for written work constitutes a violation of the college's honor code
My name is Stephanie Karwacki and I am entering my junior year at F&M with a double major in Spanish and English Literature. Though I was originally going to minor in Spanish, I decided that I would rather continue and challenge myself further, and so last year I took SPA472, Modernity, as my Spanish-language seminar.
I wanted to be a tutor because I believe that it would be a great opportunity, not only to help others improve their Spanish, but also to help them understand their own learning style. I believe it is most important to listen to learners explain their ideas so I can understand how they approach a language issue and provide feedback accordingly.
In addition to the group tutoring, I also meet students one on one, if my schedule allows.
My name is Dylan Gordon, and I am a senior double majoring in BOS and Spanish. During the spring semester of my junior year, I studied in Madrid and thoroughly enjoyed experiencing Spanish culture. Just a quick shout out…¡Vamos Atlético de Madrid!
Learning a new language (or simply perfecting grammar or conversational skills) can be rather difficult, and I remember benefiting from the help of others along the way. Hence, tutoring provides me with the ability to give back and help others conquer certain material that may be universally puzzling. Most importantly, learning Spanish is fun, and I would love to contribute towards this goal!
Hi! My name is Jen and I am a sophomore double majoring in Spanish and Chemistry. I studied abroad in high school in Spain and grew to love speaking Spanish. Learning Spanish was extremely difficult for me and therefore I would love to try to make it easier and more enjoyable for others. It is extremely helpful to know another language and I would love to show others why and help them learn not only Spanish but how they study/learn and apply it to everything else.
Hola! My name is Justis Wright, and I am a sophomore here at F&M. I am double majoring in Spanish and Sociology. I have been taking Spanish classes since 6th grade, which has fostered my deep interest and passion for the Spanish language. In the past, I have volunteered as a teaching assistant for a Spanish Immersion program at a local school, and I have volunteered as a mentor/tutor for students whose primary language is Spanish. With that being said, I am so excited to work as a tutor this year, and I look forward to helping you all with your Spanish studies!
