The Spanish Tutoring Program is a resource for 100 and 200 level students who would like additional support with the language. Tutoring sessions constitute the ideal environment to study for tests, as questions and concerns can be discussed one on one and are addressed on the spot. This semester we will be meeting on Wednesdays or Thursdays from 5 to 7 pm in Keiper 100. Each session will be staffed with at least two tutors who will help students as they need it . Interested students should feel free to show up (no appointment needed).
If you plan to show up late, contact our tutors and let them know so that they wait for you!
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 Diego Flores, and I am a junior at F&M from North Bergen, New Jersey. I am majoring in Animal Behavior and minoring in French. Even though it is more challenging to travel abroad given my choice of study and how much time I have left, I plan on studying either in France, Spain, or Argentina. I am fluent in Spanish since my parents are originally from Ecuador.
The reason why I became interested in being a tutor is because I know how hard and rewarding learning a new language can be. As a French minor, there has been many times where it took the help of tutors and classmates in order for me to succeed in understanding certain concepts I struggled with. Thus, in the same way, I want to help others learn and practice a new language that ultimately will benefit them throughout their life.
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.
Hello! My name is Emma Richman, and I’m a senior at F&M. My major is English Literature and my minor is Spanish Literature. I studied abroad in Sevilla, Spain during the fall of my junior year, and I led a group of forty 16-year-olds all over Spain this past summer.
I became interested in being a tutor because I have a passion for teaching and also a passion for Spanish. I also, unfortunately, will not be taking a Spanish class this coming semester and tutoring will be a way to make sure that I do not lose my abilities to speak with ease, while helping others.
In addition to group tutoring, I also meet students one on one, if my schedule allows.
My name is Templeton Timothy and I am a rising junior (class of 2015) double major in Psychology and Spanish but I am also on the Pre-Law track. In high school I took AP Sanish and I traveled to Zaragoza for a few weeks, which I really enjoyed. At F&M, I have taken Spanish classes every semester and I am planning to study abroad in Madrid as part of the IES Spanish Language Program.
I became interested in tutoring because I believe that I can be of help with common probles such as commands or the subjunctive Also, it will be very helpful for myself, as a Spanish speaker, since it will help me to review these points as well.
Foreign language has always been my strong suit in academics, and I want to be able to help people for whom language isn’t as easy. Not only do I like helping people, but I also find tutoring my fellow peers in Spanish (or French) to be a lot of fun. In high school, I often helped other students who were taking Spanish or French with their studies, and I’d like to be able to do that here as well.
