I have been tutoring elementary and high school students since 2012. Professionally I am an Information Technology Project Manager. In addition I worked as a Bilingual Translator for an embassy in Latin America and also taught English Language Arts and Essay Writing for the Continuing Education program. Currently I tutor English, Math, Project Management, Spanish as well as College Essay Writing. My main goal in tutoring is to assist the student in gaining self-confidence and raising the student's grade level in the particular subject matter.
It was a pleasure working with Ms. Allison as a tutor for my son Mario because her communication, excellent skills and ideas let my son focus and do his work easier.
Typically on the first visit I assess the student by giving them a simple spelling test, grammar and comprehension test. This allows me to get an understanding of what the problem is. I design a program to upgrade their skills to where it needs to be before we move forward. When I tutor an Essay Writing course I similarly try to assess the basic grammar skills of the student before we move ahead to start writing complete essays.
I excelled in my English Language courses in college. I am a trained Bilingual Translator and in order to excel as a Bilingual Translator, one has to have a good command of the English and other language. As a Project Manager I have written many business case documents. Again one has to have a strong oral and wriiten communication skill set. In addition I write professional documents for people as a side job. I am currently working on two books. One book deals with teaching kids a foreign language.
