Maya Gardos - Writing, English, And Math Tutor
Hi! My name is Maya Gardos and I am currently a humanities student at Yale University. I have worked as a tutor for the past five years. I have experience tutoring a wide variety of students and subjects. I've done everything from 3rd grade reading to high school geometry! My priority is meeting the needs of the student and I will adapt and prepare in any way possible to do this.
Here is a list of subjects I am prepared to tutor:
- Math: 2nd through 8th grade, Algebra 1, Geometry
- English: 2nd through 12th grade, AP English Language, AP English Literature, Essay Writing, College Essays
- Spanish: BASIC Spanish
I have always loved solving problems. Through these past years as a tutor, I have learned that even more rewarding than solving problems myself is helping others to do so! I strive for that moment where the solution just clicks for a student.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
First, I work with the student to see where their areas of weakness are. My initial goal is to get a good idea as to why the student sought out a tutor and the best places for me to help. Then, going forward, I maintain contact with the student in order to better prepare for sessions and address their needs. I typically teach using a white board or by going over preselected worksheets and readings.
