EducationBFA Swarthmore College, May 2012: High Honors
English-Spanish Interpreter Certification, October 2012: Nationalities Language Services
ExperienceI graduated from Swarthmore College, May 2012 with high honors.
I have fours years experience tutoring in a diversity of subjects including SAT prep, English language, Spanish, writing, history, social studies, and theater. I am also a nationally certified English-Spanish interpreter. I have privately tutored individuals locally, including specialists at Barry Callebaut Inc and Campbell's Soup Company. I have lead full classroom workshops at Bak Middle School of the Arts (FL), and acted as mentor to the 2008 Future Authors Summer Writing Workshop in Palm Beach County.
Learning by rote is a waste of time. Instead, I teach you how to learn better and to make connections with the real world. Above everything else, I believe learning should be interactive, fun, and individually tailored to the student.
I am happy to share more details about my credentials upon request. Please do not hesitate to ask.

Lori is an excellent teacher. I am learning Spanish for work related reasons and she tailored my lessons perfectly to suit my needs. She makes learning interesting and enjoyable—I highly recommend her to anyone who wishes to learn Spanish.
Lori was great to work with! I contacted her to work on my conversational Spanish in order to better serve my clients, and she was able to meet with me promptly. We had three lessons over two weeks, and by the end I was able to communicate (and understand) much more than I had before tutoring. Lori is very talented, and she was able to figure out new ways for me to retain what I had learned through exercises and practice. Before this, I had trouble with some of the different accents of Spanish speakers, but I'm much more comfortable now, thanks to the tutoring. I would highly recommend her!
