I'm Carlos. It has always been inspiring to me to assist in a student's scholastic and personal development, and help them realize their unique potential. I enjoy contributing to a student's growth in this way. I am currently employed as an Educational Director and attorney, after having earned three university degrees, and am accustomed to helping people learn. I adopt a very flexible approach to tutoring and mentoring to allow students to open up and feel comfortable talking to someone outside their home environment to best determine and work on their greatest areas of need and growth. I help the student set goals, develop an understanding of the desired educational path, and focus on a tutoring plan to cover individual subjects and needs. I can also help students identify their strengths and desirable career path. I have tutored and mentored at-risk youth, elementary, high school, university, pre-graduate, law school and pre-medical school students on different subjects ranging from: English, grammar, reading and writing, public speaking, college, law school, and graduate school preparation, the basics of what it requires to run a business, marketing, advice on students' social interactions to best prepare them for personal growth and the expectations of their educational pursuits and professional lives.
I usually use at least a portion of the first session to get to know what your goals and needs are and to determine the best approach to take to meet those goals. I don't believe there is one way to tutor or help teach students, every situation is different and requires careful reflection with parental input.
For subsequent sessions, expectations, lesson plans, and execution of the student's goals are emphasized. I try to be as flexible as possible to the student's desired scope of the tutoring session while offering guidance and direction. The sessions can be very material-intensive, geared for specific considerations, or have a broader scope. My tutoring sessions promote a lot of enthusiasm, because learning and improving should be celebrated and enjoyed by the student.
I am open to negotiate something to fit a particular student's needs and costs. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in a tutoring/mentoring arrangement, or if you have further questions.
I look forward to meeting you to help you achieve your goals!
