My name is Walter, 25 years old. I graduated from the University of Portland in 2009 with a degree in Political Science
and competed as an NCAA Division One athlete in the sport of Basketball
. I am from West Los Angeles, fluent in English
, Spanish, German
, and graduated from Venice High School in 2004.
My tutoring career started as peer mentor/tutor in High School and continued through college in the Portland area for middle school and high school students. Since 2009 I have served as a mentor and tutor for students in the community of Venice. Tutored in History
, English, Writing
skills, Writing skills and Sports. I am currently taking classes at UCLA and will be available to tutor until August. I have been playing professional Basketball in Latin
America and traveling around the world since graduating in 2009 as well as studying for the LSAT
I was told about the chance to tutor through a friend and I found that it could be a rewarding experience to be able to help young people achieve their educational goals. I come from a very educated family, both of my parents are Professors at the University level, so I know what it takes to accomplish and set to out to achieve academic success. My tutoring methods are very simple. I believe that every student has an untapped source of potential, sometimes all young people need is a way to find motivation and guidance. Through hard work, positive energy and a collective effort there can be a great deal of success for any student. I am in my mid twenties so I know how to relate to younger students on a very genuine level.
Currently live in West Los Angeles, in the Mar Vista area. I have access to a car and willing to drive to any location. Looking to hear from any students and families who are ready to excel
and enjoy the educational experience of being tutored. Cheers!
