Dear Parents and Students,
I believe it is important to know a little bit about a tutor so you can decide if they might be a good fit for you so I would like to share a little of my background with you! I am from The Bay Area where I attended Carondelet High School and earned my B.A. in Communication from Saint Mary’s College of California while maintaining a 3.75 GPA. My studies included a Major in Communication with a Minor in English. During the summers, I attended The University of Wyoming in Laramie, Wyoming for Summer School studies in Geology. Recently, I attended The University of Iowa's renowned Summer Writing Program where I acquired more writing skills in Fiction & Nonfiction.
I believe patience, a great sense of humor and strong communication skills -- listening, especially -- help make an excellent tutor. I believe it's about understanding the needs of the student and what subjects they are requiring help in so they feel more confident in their skills and abilities to master these "challenging" subjects!
By nature, I am personable, a hard worker with drive and ambition that help me to be an instrumental tutor. I am gifted with a fundamental work ethic that supports a deep desire to succeed -- I will give 100% towards helping any student become self-confident in their "challenging" subjects.
I have a tremendous experience in tutoring students of all ages. As I lived in Sacramento for a couple years, I tutored children in 3rd-8th grade where I constantly helped with their homework assignments. Subjects ranged from English (Composition, Grammar, Literature, Proofreading, Reading and Spelling), Vocabulary and Writing, Math (Elementary and Algebra), Science (Elementary and Geology) to Social Studies. Being involved in these students' education, I saw vast improvements in their grades where they began achieving “A’s” and “B’s.” Too, their overall attitude was better and they had more confidence! Since moving back to The Bay Area over a year ago, I have continued to work with students from all ages with various needs in certain subjects -- grade school through College and Graduate School.
With every student I have helped, I strive to have them gain an understanding of the importance to time-management and using a "planner" to stay organized and be aware of deadlines.
I would enjoy helping you with any subjects you are "shaky" in so you become more confident in the curriculum. I can do this through a good sense of humor, actively listening and having a fun and outgoing attitude! I really look forward to working with you!
