About this tutor

I like to get to know my students a little bit, as I know it can be awkward the first time sitting down with someone you don't know.  I want to let the student know that I am there to help, but they can feel very comfortable around me because I am patient, understanding, and eager for them to succeed.

I like that I get to meet many people.  I enjoy being able to help others, and I really like seeing that progress has been made.  It is great to see a student excel who was once struggling.  I like being able to lead students the correct way without just giving them the answers.

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

I like to evaluate the student's current comfort level with the material, then devise a game plan from there.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I studied Italian for 2 years in college, and was an Italian tutor for 1 year while there. I also have years of experience with the French language, having studied it from elementary school through college. Recently, I completed intermediate and advanced-level Spanish courses at a local community college. I would be comfortable tutoring elementary and intermediate levels of these languages.

I also have taken math courses from basic arithmetic, through Calculus, and have tutored students of various math levels.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Generally, based on previous tutoring for my services, I would expect to receive at least $15 per hour.  The price would go up for things like traveling outside of my set travel range, and last-minute appointments.

How did you get started teaching?

My first experience with tutoring was in college when I started tutoring math.  My mom recommended me to a friend because she said I was good at math and could probably help.  I gave it a shot and really liked it, so I knew it was something I would want to continue doing to some extent in the future.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with elementary school students, all the way up to college students.  

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Recently, I started tutoring a student in Precalculus who was struggling, even failing.  His mother informed me that after a couple of sessions with me, his performance dramatically improved.  She expressed much gratitude, and I was very happy to hear that.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure to be prepared.  Have any materials you think would be useful in aiding and facilitating the learning process.  Also, have an idea of what you are trying to learn or improve, how you want the teacher to help you, and what your goals are as far as learning.  This will allow a potential teacher to decide not only whether they will be able to provide all of the help the student needs, but also will help the teacher to better devise a strategy in advance of a solid method for learning, based on that particular student's needs.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Students should be able to clearly indicate what they are struggling with.  They should explain the methods they have tried to solve problems, and ask if there are better methods to find solutions.
