Hi!

Thank you for wanting to do better in school.

I have been happily tutoring for almost 6 years and generally teach elementary to high school. I am fluent in Spanish, in addition to it being my minor in college. My major was a Science - based one, so I teach mostly Science, Spanish, and Math. Because not everybody is the same, I like tailoring the learning interaction to the learning style of the my student.

Having been a coach to kids in school, I have a love for inspiring. Patience is key with anything and I am committed to reaching our end goal!

This explains the 4 star rating. I appreciate the effort of the feedback; if only the same effort was put into bringing a pen and paper to the lesson, imagine the possibilities. I, too, can definitely make mistakes and will take the blame for miscommunication as far as meeting time; however, getting to the point of Math in one total hour for a 3 hour standardized test is pretty tough. I'm sorry that standard was not met. Thank you for the opportunity for me to learn from this and I hope you don't give up in the future.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

Having tutored over 20 elementary aged children in various subjects, from physical science and math to Spanish and English, I love doing it and continue to do so. Making it interactive and creative keeps their attention and allows them to eventually love learning that particular subject. They're sponges! Let's be a catalyst for that.

Piano

I played piano for 8 consecutive years with a private instructor and still play on a regular basis. From basic notes to chords and extensive flats and sharps, I can teach it and love it. I have a nostalgic passion for it and will continue to teach others until I am old. :)

Public Speaking

Public speaking in front of others is something I've done in high school (Model UN), college (class presentations and my thesis), and even in the professional world. I was hired as a consultant and public speaker. Knowledge is confidence and audience is key. From fidgeting to eye contact, I've conquered this area. Inspiring others while doing technical training, is what I do!

Best tutor EVER!!! — Astrid has been tutoring my 13 year old son for over a year now. It is amazing how she tutors so brilliantly in almost every subject, Math, English, Science and Spanish. A true professional, always on time and easy to reach. My son adores her, and has increased his GPA almost a full letter grade due to her dedication and understanding. A real gem! ...
