My greatest passion in life is teaching. I was born and raised in Texas, and experienced great success at school due to amazing and unforgetable teachers. Similarly I want my students to experience the same path of learning, where they can encounter success. This is the foundation of my commitment to helping out my students, whatever their abilities may be. I have a strong passion of learning and hope to instill that same passion in my students.
I enjoy helping others and making them realize that learning can be fun and easy, no matter what it requires. For 3 years I have been a part of Helping Seniors, Key Club, and Red Cross. Learning is a very important part of my life, as it aspires us to explore more and I would love to share my knowledge with others.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
When working with a student, the most important aspect of the entire process is building a rapport. At this point in time, students have potentially struggled with various topics, so the importance of instilling confidence in them before any tutoring begins is essential to their success. Nevertheless, prior to scheduling sessions, I like to meet with the student and/or parent(s). We work hand in hand to build their specialized plan of action. Students create a detailed description of their current situation and their desired results. Next, we come up with a set of goals and how to implement the plan of action apprpriately in order to accomplish said results. This plan depends on the immediate needs of the student, but many plans include some sort of accommodation to pre and post- session communication in order to track progress.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have tutored at other institutions like Eye Level Tutoring Center before, where I have tutored elementary and middle school students in various subjects. I am proficient in elementary math, reading, science, and social studies, Algebra I & II, Geometry, English I,II, & III, Biology, and Chemistry.
