About this tutor

Literature:  

For children:  I will allow the student to read out loud individually or read out loud with them. If a text is difficult I will ask the student to break down the text and not rush them. I will also ask open-ended questions such as "what did you think of the story/characters?" 

For adolescents and older: I would lead a discussion on a written piece. The student will be given the chance to share their opinions or beliefs. However, they will be asked how they came to their conclusions. It is not to put them on the spot, but to practice using text examples as support for their ideas. Questions and commentaries in the discussion will involve symbolisms/themes and the overall plot of the written piece.

Art:

I have taken an art education course, a new media art class, and graphic design/art courses. I have recieved two awards for my artwork in high school and had my works featured in student shows at Sacramento City College and Sacramento State.

I give sincere critique to those who show me their artwork. I will say what I like and what I think can be improved. For example, "it seems you need to work on line smoothness."

What fascinates me about literature is that there can be many analyses and responses involving one book.

What I love about art, is that it acts as a form of self-expression and a lifelong challenge (it's fun as well).

  • Maria Vallejo

    She helped me with my college essays. She read and revised my drafts with me. She also looked over the prompt and rubric to see if my writing met the proper requirements. I would recommend her for a variety of writing needs. She also guided me in my understanding of symbolism and other literary elements in various works of literature.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Start with a simple introduction. Ask the student their name, preferred pronouns, and ask if they would like to share any feelings they have (concerns or hopes).
