Hi! I am also a student myself, currently in school going for a post-bachelor's degree in nursing. I've been tutoring privately on and off for about ten years. I tutored math, Spanish, sociology, and some science courses for six years at a community college and I have also tutored middle and high school students either privately or through after-school programs. I've passed the CBEST as well as the Spanish language proficiency test for the Culver City Unified School District.

With elementary school, middle school, and sometimes high school students, I like to use games and puzzles every now and then. It helps me determine what learning style the student is comfortable with, and it can also help students solve problems from multiple perspectives, and it can just be a nice break from what the student usually does.

Whatever's ailing you, I'll try to help you get through it to the best of my ability. I look forward to working with you!
