Hello! My name is Cecilia. I have experience tutoring students between third grade and college in English Language Arts, Social Sciences, Spanish and study skills. I have taken credential classes and have completed several hours of field work in high school classes. I am patient and enthusiastic in my approach and find that kids respond best to someone who is positive but diligent.

I have worked for California State University Northridge and the University of Southern California, and am now an analyst for the government. I considered teaching but found that I prefer working with kids on a one-on-one level and seeing their progression.

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.

American History

I have a Bachelor's Degree in History and graduated Magna Cum Laude. I have experience tutoring children from elementary school to post graduate.

Elementary (K-6th)

Last year I tutored six students in elementary school, grades three through six. I tutored in spelling, reading, comprehension, critical thinking, analysis, phonetics, interpreting information, and writing. Taught sentence structure, proper tense usage, and grammar. Though I mainly focused on ELA, I did some tutoring in basic elementary math. I would make a great study coach. I can help with homework and prepare students for tests. I understand they need the right measure of motivation, encouragement, and discipline.

Social Studies

I have a Bachelor's degree in History. I graduated Magna Cum Laude and was a member of the History Honor Society. I tutored a college student in the Social Science CSET subject tests and he passed. We worked on American History, World History, Geography, and Economics.

Spanish

I come from a Spanish speaking background but also studied the language for four years.

Writing

I have experience writing essays, book reports, and bibliographies.
