Hello!

My name is Camira and I am a graduate of Stanford University with a dual bachelor's degree in Communication and French.

I have extensive experience in working with students to bring out the best in their academic performance. When working with students, my goal is not to tell them what to do or do their work for them. Rather, teach them how to use the skills they already possess to help them improve. For me, success is seeing a student I'm working with no longer in need of my help, and then I take that as an opportunity to challenge them to do even better than before.

I have worked with students of all ages –– pre-K to college -- over the past seven years and I worked both for myself and for reputable tutoring company in Menlo Park. I specialize in language arts, essay writing, general study skills and prep for ISEE (lower and upper) exams. That said, I have taught various subjects over the years, so please feel free to reach out if you would like to know more about other topics I've covered or more details on anything above.

i look forward to working with you and your student!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked with students for over seven years through academic programs, in groups as well as 1:1 sessions. I spent two years working as an instructor and instructor-trainer with ThinkMath, which developed math skills for students K-5. I also worked with a Menlo Park-based tutoring company where I helped K-6 students by reinforcing concepts learned in school (math, spelling, history, etc) while teaching fundamental study skills.

ISEE

I taught lower and upper ISEE exam prep to large groups and in 1:1 settings. I focused on preparing students by improving grammar, covering important math skills and acclimating them to the time given for the test. Additionally, I used a variety of resources outside the test prep book to prepare the student for the exam and helped build their confidence in their abilities.

Study Skills

I've helped students for over 7 years and they've ranged from elementary to college. When working with students, I spend a significant amount of time building fundamental study habits, such as managing time, using available resources and knowing what questions to ask when stumped. I focus on individual needs and make a unique study plan for each student to help develop strengths and improve areas of weakness.
