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! Hi!

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!
Astrid has been working with my 13 year old daughter over the past few months on math and some Spanish. She is patient, clear and kind. My daughter really likes her. Astrid was an integral part of her late turnaround at the end of the last school year and we have continued to use her services over the summer in preparation for 8th grade math. We highly recommend her!
I am currently preparing for the GMAT, and I couldn't have asked for a better coach than Astrid. Right away she made me feel comfortable with my understanding of the core concepts and never stopped encouraging me to push myself forward. Our meetings were casual, fun and relaxed, but super focused and challenging. I have come a long way in the last 5 weeks or so, and I couldn't have done it without her.
I'm a second year Harvard student and have studied Spanish as part of my curriculum. Astrid has tutored me in this subject and has been an amazing help. Her command of the language and her ability to present grammar in an understandable and easy to retain manner has been exemplary. She encourages conversational skill in a fun and relaxed way. She has great patience and a cheerfulness that has helped me get through the hardest of lessons. I highly recommend her to anyone trying to learn Spanish at any level.
Let me just start off by saying that I'm a court reporter (stenographer) and my job is all about grammar and punctuation. When I got out of school and got my first job as a stenographer, I was recommended by my teacher and boss to get a tutor for grammar. Throughout my years in high school and even elementary, I didn't have an ounce of grammar.
I found this website and looked at my tutors. I e-mailed a bunch of them and came across Astrid. She was very prompt and patient explaining how she tutors, which is what I needed. Mind you, I was starting from the beginners level of grammar and my whole career depended on it.
I met with Astrid and we continued my tutoring sessions for about a year. She is the most patient, smart, kind tutor you'll meet. She explains things in many different ways until you understand it. My schedule at the time of tutoring was very hectic, and she went out of her way to accommodate my needs.
All in all, Astrid is amazing. If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't have been able to be in the career that I'm in. I can't thank her enough for the knowledge she's given to me. I'll recommend her to anyone that's looking for a tutor. It's not an easy job teaching people having difficulties with learning something specific. She went out of her way to make sure I understood what she was saying even if she had to say it 100 different ways! I highly, highly recommend Astrid!!
First day was pretty good. Everything went well very and Astride was patient, I will admit to that. Then the second day we were supposed to meet at 10 a.m., but she was late. I waited 10 minutes but still no show. Then the third time we met for only 15 minutes, which was pointless. We also didn't get to the point of what I was actually trying to learn. Overall an, alright tutor.
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.
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.
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.
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 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!
