Exceptional interpersonal and communicative skills, looking for a job that allows me to work with people on a daily basis. College degree in English and work with languages in the home and abroad has given me unique ability and desire to understand people of differing cultural backgrounds. Hard worker who will go above and beyond to aid others. Looking for work more pertaining to my degree. Excellent editing skills. Fast learner.
Teaching experience is minimal regarding academia. Aided other students while obtaining my degree and continue to edit papers of family members and friends still in university. Grew up in a home-schooling environment which has led to an understanding of how to self-teach which could easily be applied to helping others. Was a weekend teachers' aid in high school for grades K-5. In my time as a Server, have more than adequately trained many other employees in varying roles.
