I am a tutor who wants students to understand what they are studying. I have worked with students in the Supplemental Instruction Program at Georgia State University and most of them complained with my requirements at the beginning, but at the end of the semester, most of them got A or even A+. They usually come to me and say, sorry we were complaining, but your method was helpful.

Working with younger students is very good and I want them to be engaged. My incentives are all centered in what they are studying in school. I want them to understand what they are studying and be able to clearly discuss the topic with their teachers/professors.

I recently had a student who wanted to improve her Portuguese because she would be leaving to Angola. When she arrived in Luanda and started talking Portuguese with her local colleagues, they were all surprised she could communicate that well. That is what she told me is the email she sent me from Angola. That is what I want my students to be. My students are my focus.

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.

Microsoft Excel

I started using MS-Excel in the 1990s when I was 17 years old. After a huge flood in my province in Mozambique I worked for Caritas as a coordinator for food distribution and later as a coordinator of a work for food program. That's when I realized that MS-Excel was a powerful tool for my work: planning, management, reporting.

In my current PhD program, Excel is the best program to build datasets before I transfer the data to Stata.

Qualifications:
- build datasets
- manage data
- use formulae and compute (calculus)
- create graphs

Portuguese

I am a native speaker from Mozambique, where I did my undergrad in International Relations and my first masters degree in Governance and Public Democracy. Besides my own regular op-eds, I have edited several publications in Portuguese. I am currently a PhD student at Georgia State University.
