Hi there! My name is Mia, and I am a professional educator who loves learning and supporting learning in others. My professional experiences in education range from working as a full time tutor at a community college to working as a private tutor for elementary aged students. I enjoy working with students of all ages in several different subjects. However, the most rewarding aspect of tutoring for me is the relationships that I build with students as they grow into mature readers, writers, and thinkers.

  • Amy Johnson

    She was friendly and very down to earth. She communicated with my high school daughter very well. She was very patient and provided her with numerous studying tips that have significantly boosted my daughter’s confidence. Her demeanor is very professional and motivating. My daughter has made significant progress and I would definitely recommend Mia to other parents and students.

    Ms Gonzalez was extremely helpful and patient with my 6th grader. She explained everything in a way that he understood. Very nice young lady with a bright future.

  • Julie Hackbarth

    Mia was wonderful with our 2 kids ages, 9 & 11. She was patient, thorough and helped keep our children engaged with each lesson.



FAQs


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

The first session for a new student is a little different than repeating sessions. I like to discuss the student’s and family member’s goals for tutoring. I also like to ask questions about a student’s experience in education, after school interests, and academic strengths. I also provide students with a brief learning styles quiz so that we can structure future tutoring sessions to match a student’s learning style. Depending on your pre-tutoring consultation, the rest of the session will either focus on assigned classwork or an activity that I have prepared.


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

My professional experiences in education range from working as a full time tutor at a community college to working as a private tutor for elementary aged students. I enjoy working with students of all ages in several different subjects. However, the most rewarding aspect of tutoring for me is the relationships that I build with students as they grow into mature readers, writers, and thinkers. 

In my role as a full time tutor in a community college setting, I supported English Language Learners, non-traditional students, student veterans, and first time in college students with grammar, writing, reading, and content clarification for humanities courses. As a private tutor, I have helped students with everything from beginning reading and writing to college application essays. I additionally work as a freelance editor and writer where I regularly practice the lessons I teach to students.


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