My name is Maria and I'm a senior Political Science student with concentrations in International Relations and American Politics at UC Berkeley. I started tutoring at the age of fourteen, helping classmates and neighbors with their homework and preparing for exams. Many years have passed since then and yet, I still do the same, helping others succeed in areas such as Spanish, Public Speaking, Art theory, Politics,History and more. Now, I would like to take my ability to help students achieve their true potential to the next level through WyzAnt.
Originally from Santiago, Chile, I moved to San Francisco over five years ago with the dream of attending college in the United States and be truly challenged. I taught myself English and moved up from Community College to one of the best schools in the country, where I'll be graduating this May among the top 15% of my class (and I have done this while also working part time).
Whether you want to get a competitive edge in a given subject, are struggling with it, or just want to increase your wealth of knowledge, I can help you. I'll be personally invested in your success, I'll do my best at keeping you engaged, and we will have fun in the process. I'm enthusiastic, patient, and supportive. I can look at a problem from multiple perspectives and I can express myself in simple terms. I always adapt my approach to the student and make sure to emphasize real understanding and a capacity to make connections, rather than the use of memory alone.
Thank you for showing your interest; I can't wait to hear from you to find out how I can help you succeed.
