I have a passion for tutoring and for providing academic support to students K-12th grade. In the past, I have had experience working in after school programs tutoring students k-3rd grade in all subjects, and most recently have worked with high school students, including students with special needs. During my time at UC Berkeley, I volunteered a couple of hours a week at the writing center helping out other fellow peers with some of their papers for subjects within the majors of Sociology, Social Work, Anthropology and English Literature. While working on my degree, I also spent six months in Argentina (my native country) studying abroad, and got to expand my tutoring skills further by working with people of all ages and walks of life as an English Instructor. I primarily worked with students 6th-12th grade and college students (ages ranged from 18-50).
In addition to academic support, I focus on developing successful study/homework skills. Organization and prioritization are just as important as understanding the content of the subject of study. I provide tips and guidelines as to how to approach a project, understanding what it entails--what one is being asked to do, and seeing it through until completion. I believe that embracing healthy study skills will not only make the subject a bit easier to tackle, but also help a student develop more self confidence in their work and ability.
My academic areas of strength include English (writing/reading/grammar), Spanish (I am a native speaker), and World History (with an emphasis on US history). I also feel very comfortable tutoring Science and Math for grades k-8th. Doing your work can be fun! Let's work together to understand it and get it done!
