My name is Jose Omar Gutierrez. I am a recent graduate of Case Western Reserve University going into medical school in the fall. I have worked as a tutor for four years at Esperanza, Inc, a non-profit in Cleveland OH. This environment exposed me to all grades levels and therefore, I have experience with all ages and with all subjects.
Because the organization serves to meet all the educational needs of students, I also am excellent at college counseling, career prep, test prep (ACT, MCAT, OGT). In my spare time I like to draw, write, and go salsa dancing (which I can also teach). I have witnessed the performance of all my students improve throughout the time I have worked with them, and many who did not have intentions of going to college, are now enrolled in a four-year institution.
I have a unique philosophy when it comes to tutoring. I believe that it is essential to get the student comfortable enough to talk because this makes working with them easier. This is equally important because it is necessary to gauge the students' learning style so that I can develop an appropriate way for them to learn best from our tutoring sessions. Lastly, I am very patient and especially excited to work with students who may not have the best confidence and are struggling in school.
