My name is Karina and I have a BS in Physics and a BA in Math - Advanced Studies Orientation. I am currently a Physics PhD student at UC Santa Barbara. I am also a native Spanish speaker from Argentina.
I really enjoy tutoring because it gives me a chance to be creative. Each person is unique, and so is the way they understand things. That's why I try to understand the way my students think about the subject they are struggling with, so I can explain it in their terms. I am also very patient and don't mind going over something many many times. It just makes it more interesting, because it means I have to come up with a new way to explain it.
I have lots of experience tutoring. In math and physics, I have tutored mainly high school and college students. In Spanish, I have tutored people of all ages, from middle school to adults. I have also worked for test preparation companies teaching SSAT and SAT preparation and know lots of 'tricks' to improve scores.
