About this tutor

I am experienced in tutoring children from ages 4 to 18 as well as Adults. I've been tutoring since 2015 in English, Spanish, Writing, Sociology, Social Studies, and Study Skills. I was also a high school Color Guard Instructor for 3 years. I am computer proficient, particularly with Apple products. I taught both children and adults to use Apple software and hardware for 3 years when I worked at an Apple Store's Genius Bar. I worked as a teaching assistant to college professors for 3 semester courses. I have a Bachelors of Science in Sociology; graduated Summa Cum Laude; 3. 9 GPA. I earned my Master of Arts degree from the University of Michigan in Instructional Theory and Practice with a focus in Social Studies; 3. 8 GPA. I am currently working as a training coordinator for IT/Technology at a foster care agency. I have a passion for teaching and a lot of experience. I am originally from Miami, Florida. I am fluent in English and Spanish. 

I enjoy the "aha" moments. The scaffolding that I put in place for students feels like solving a puzzle to me. I make things work for my students so that they can learn effectively and with as little frustration as possible. Figuring that out takes a few lessons, but I know I've got it once I can see things clicking for students. Those are the best moments.

FAQs


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

I chat with the student and have them do an activity with me to assess their current proficiency with the subject. I then plan a course of action, sometimes including them in the planning process if they are of an appropriate age. After each planned lesson is executed, I re-evaluate the effectiveness of my plan and adjust as necessary for the next lesson. Sometimes, I make adjustemnts during the lesson, if possible and necessary. I always encourage feedback from students and parents, and keep both updated regarding progress and opportunities for improvement.
