I am a young, aspiring math
teacher and a veteran tutor. My undergraduate degree is in International Studies-Economics
from UCSD. I am a currently studying at San Diego State University working toward my Dual Language
Math teaching credential. In about a year, I should have my own bilingual classroom. I have been a tutor for seven years now and an intern teacher at Sweetwater Union High for two. I have taught Math 7 and Algebra
as long-term substitute position for 3-12 weeks at a time. I was also a homeschool
math teacher for an 8th grader (Algebra), and a 10th grader (Algebra 2
). I am very comfortable with the standards and I know the level your student should currently be in given his or her age. I will be able to let you know if your student is behind, advanced, or ready for some of the pivotal subjects such as Algebra or pre-calculus
Along with math tutoring, parents find themselves asking me for help with any of their student's subjects. My undergraduate major was very interdisciplinary, so not only did I have to take numerous calculus
classes, but I also had to write lengthy research papers. I have worked with almost every subject in the middle and high school level, so whether it be your student's social studies
homework, or if they're new to writing
papers, I would be more than glad to help with that as well. This is not to say that I do not welcome your elementary school child! I love working with younger kids and am more than willing to help them improve as well.
The key to a successful student is the ability to be organized and disciplined. If you're having trouble with your student finishing homework and/or fully preparing for tests and exams, I will be able to teach your student great skills and organization
methods to be a competitive candidate for college, whether that be 2 or 7 years down the line.
I have very high expectations for my students, so I will also have high expectations for yours. I push my students, but in a nurturing manner. I have worked with special ed students and English
language learners. Students feel at ease with me and I continually am told that I teach them better than their teachers.
Unlike many tutors, this is my craft and I feel very passionate about the acquisition of concepts, especially mathematics
. Hopefully we could build a relationship to not only improve your student's grade but to improve their outlook on school and education.
