I am a self-employed tutor with experience helping children and adults with over five years experience. My most recent client is a native Spanish speaker, however with my additional support she was able to achieve A's in both algebra 1 and 2. I am more that prepared to teach in math, English, and any other general academic subjects.

Patience, humor, and flexibility are all key themes in how I tutor students regardless of any obstacles they are currently facing. Most times they are more than capable to succeed in struggling academic subjects, however they just need to unlock this potential. That is where I come in. I provide the foundation for a positive and enriching educational experience, that will leave the student feeling more confident than before they started.

My approach to tutoring is that people learn best in a relaxed and supportive environment in which they feel comfortable in challenging themselves. I am sensitive to an an array of learning styles and I am constantly adapting my tutoring methods to best fit the needs of students.

I am a recent college graduate that hails from San Diego. I am fluent in Spanish and my multicultural background perfectly complements my own educational endeavors and those that I tutor. This blend allows me to remain fluid and effective in my own educational philosophy.

I am more than excited to help you reach your academic goals so that way you can get back to the things that make you happy and fulfilled.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Autism

I am pursuing a Professional Concentration from UC Davis Extension in Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). It is a 3 course sequence that covers the characteristics of ASD, applied behavior analysis, and strategies and interventions for those with ASD. I expect to be done with the concentration in Summer 2014.

Spanish

I am a native Spanish speaker.

Study Skills

I have a Bachelor degree in African-American studies with a minor in Global Culture, which required extensive reading and writing. I have tutored independently children and adults helping them to sharpen their time management and study skills. Often times they need help organizing their study materials and homework in order to truly organize mentally the subjects they are struggling in.

Writing

I created my own independent study course and in culmination wrote a 20 page research paper that received an A. I received no lower than an A in all of my academic papers.
