I have been teaching Spanish
at the college and high school levels at schools such as DePaul University, North Park College and Loyola Academy for 16 years and have a PhD in Hispanic Literature
from the University of Texas at Austin. Moreover, I hold a Bilingual Type 29 teaching certificate from the State of Illinois.
My tutoring students have met with success, including one at New Trier who went from a C
last year to an A this year, and another who was getting Ds on his exams and who now consistently gets 90s on assessments and who received a B on the mid-term exam.
Currently I am enrolled at Northeastern Illinois University in the Education program, which has required that my background (using fingerprints) be checked twice in the last 12 months.
Along with Spanish, I enjoy teaching math
to girls, especially Pre-Algebra
and Algebra, because I like to show them that women ARE good at math.
Standardized tests have been easy for me to take and explain, and I have received very high scores on many standardized tests (GRE
, Basic Skills, etc.) For example, when I took the Basic Skills test I scored a perfect 300 in both Math and Writing
. Because I have taken that teaching exam, I enjoy tutoring potential teachers and social workers for the TAP test.
I look forward to tutoring you or your child!

sense if you think about it. You find the area of the circle, and then multiply it by the height of the cylinder. This...
