Hello,I am a senior English major and French minor at Willamette University. I will be living in the Lake Tahoe area this summer, specifically Incline Village, and I am searching for a summer job. I have a passion for education, administration, and community service and would be very happy with a job in any of those fields.I know how to be flexible to work with individuals with strengths and weaknesses in a variety of disciplines, adjust my teaching process according to the individuals' learning styles, and to ask question (rather than simply give answers) in order to help someone understand a new concept or perspective. I can prioritize tasks, manage a system by creating different phases and modes of organizations, and be attentive to details. I act efficiently and effectively in a professional environment, attend to team building qualities and growth, and utilize the power of individual's and group's passionate ideas to create successful events for the community.Please feel free to contact me if you have, or know of, any opportunities, I might be able to pursue. Thank you.

My family lives at Willamette Landing Apartments, just 2 miles from campus. We are in the smaller size apartment right now and will be moving to a river side apartment early to mid August, before school starts. We're not moving just for the view, but for a little more room too (there's 3 of us and we're a bit cramped.) We'll be taking over someone else's lease and so we're hoping to find someone able to take over our lease which is up next April (management may be able to adjust that to coincide with the end of school.)Our apartment is pretty ideal for all the smaller apartments. It's on the second floor and stays pretty warm in the winter if someone is living below. It's also on the end of the building so you only have neighbors below and to one side, and it's at the end of the property so it's pretty quiet, right next to the community garden, shaded, and even has a small view of the river from the living room. It's easily within biking distance, probably 15 min, to the University, and even walking distance too. I walk it about 3 times a week, it takes me about 35 min. one way. There are quite a few Willamette University community members living here too, staff and students both. There is a club house available with weight machines, big screen TV, piano, and pool table that can be reserved for parties as well. There is also assigned parking which is covered, and uncovered resident parking and guest parking as well. The other nice thing about these apartments is they are pet friendly, but they don't smell or look like it. The management team is pretty awesome, and also tries to be environmentally friendly. This week, for example, they have a herd of goats taking care of the blackberry bushes down by the river. Anyway, they will clean the apartment after we move out but we're pretty clean anyway so it's still a great apartment.If you are interested let me know or contact Melodie directly at Willamette Landing Apartments and tell her Elaine Goff sent you.
