As an honors Graduate from Georgia State University, and having learned 3 new languages (more like 2 and a half but 3 sounds better!), I have realized the importance and seen the results of studying effectively and working hard. I enjoy making a difference in a student’s grade and changing their attitude about a subject (although their impression of their teacher may not improve), I have been tutoring for over two years, and started coaching soccer about one year ago. I find it very satisfying and it’s the best job I ever had!!
I have specialized in tutoring math for high school students. But I graduated with an Economics degree and would like to start helping college students as well.
I enjoy teaching math related subjects because I find that many people struggle with it. I focus on finding the students’ best learning style (visual, auditory, reading-writing, etc.) and try to teach in the best way the student will learn. Students may feel overwhelmed or lose confidence when they struggle with material they are actually very capable of learning. I simplify the lessons, patiently explain confusing subjects, and provide my own tips and advice for students. I am very practical: I teach my students in order for them to learn the material well, but also give advise on how to improve grades and performance.
Foreign Language is another one of my strongest subjects, my mother tongue is actually Spanish although my English is just as good. I learned Italian studying abroad in Venice for a year, and can have advanced conversations. I also studied abroad in France, and minored in that language, but French is my weakest and can only teach that to beginner students. Having said that, I know what it takes to learn languages, I have been there, lost, confused and frustrated many times. I know what works and what will slip from your brain 30 minutes after learning it. Practice makes perfect, but motivation and self-confidence are crucial, and I provide that along with the material.
Please do not hesitate to contact me!
Thank you and have a good day!
