About this tutor

Where most tutors are looking to churn out hours with their students, I hope to build long-term mutual relationships. My ideal is to aid a student continuously across multiple subjects and school years/semesters, not simply for one exam.

I am incredibly flexible, which is why I recently returned to tutoring work. I am available, with advance notice, most days of the week and most times of the day, as long as it cooperates with my own course schedule.

I enjoy the ability to meet new people and to instill knowledge in subjects that I have plenty of interest in.

FAQs


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

I strongly value the importance of understanding a student as an individual in order to better instruct them. When working with a new student, I strive to obtain a full understanding such as learning his or her interests/passions.


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

I have worked in restaurant management for over 5 years working primarly with young adults. I am proud of my ability to connect with this audience and elevate them to success, especially in the fast-paced, stressful circumstance I am accustomed to.


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

My hourly rate is influenced by the specific assignment with a student. Example:

A short-term assignment such as helping a student for 15 hours across 3 days prepare for a final exam would most likely result in a higher rate compared to a more long-term assignment such as assisting a student for 5 hours a week across an entire semester.

Travel time/expenses affect my rate as well. If a student lives 20 miles away but is willing to meet me 10 miles away, I would offer a lower rate.

Of the subjects I tutor, I have a more advanced knowledge/expertise with some versus others. Those subjects begin at a higher rate.

All in all, I can outline my pricing offer clearly and am completely open to negotiation.


How did you get started teaching?

As young as 12 and 13, I was staying after school 3 days a week with my math and Spanish teachers helping students. This continued through high school and college as my knowledge and exposure to new subject matters increased.

I have recently decided to return to tutoring in order to:

1. Earn an additional income, as I recently returned to the university to finish my undergraduate degree and therefore am no longer working full-time

2. Stay sharp on particular subject matters, as well as continue to develop my skills as an instructor.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with primarily with middle school and high school aged students in the past, but recently I have worked with fellow undergrads in primarly 100-200 level courses.


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

My areas of expertise include Spanish at any high school level, Psychology courses at the undergraduate level, Social studies (History, Geography, etc) at any high school level, and Mathematics at a lower high school level (Algebra I and II and Statistics).

I would advise students to discuss with potential tutors the background evidence that supports their expertise.

I am fluent in Spanish because my parents are Spanish-speaking immigrants and have over 4 years of experience tutoring high school students in Spanish I through AP. I have studied Psychology extensively at the undergraduate level. I have a great interest in social studies, history specifically, that has been a hobby study of interest for many years. I have over 5 years of experience tutoring middle school and high school aged students in mathematics ranging from pre-algebra through Algebra II and Statistics.


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

Students should reflect on their learning styles and what their struggles have been with a particular matter.

A successful instructor will develop a full profile of their student as an individual.
