About this tutor

As a tutor, I approach my time with each student differently, custom-tailoring sessions according to my client's articulated goals and learning styles. I work through homework with students and incorporate mini-lessons into the sessions to review concepts or clear up any confusion. Many students appreciate my ability to create content on the spot, whether math problems to refine a certain skill or written Spanish scenarios to prep for an upcoming test.

​The method of instruction I practice is inquiry. Rather than offering hints or placing the focus on getting the right answer, I ask guiding questions to engage the student in their own thinking processes. 

In my experience, a great student is dedicated, hardworking, and organized. I believe academic success takes so much more than rote memorization or a brilliant mind. A culture of encouragement and accountability motivates students to stay organized and study effectively. By equipping students with fundamental tools for success, I ensure they can reach their personal and academic goals.
