I have more than 15 years of experience preparing students to take the GED Exams, both in English and Spanish.
I have also been an ESL Instructor and Spanish Tutor, especially in the most difficult subjects like Math and Language Arts Writing as well as Composition.
I am very passionate when I teach and I pride myself on getting results above expectations. I am also involved in using online tutoring programs for prescriptive credit recovery as well. Even though I did not major in education
I got involved in teaching as soon as I graduated and that has been my life ever since.

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.

ESL/ESOL

After arriving to America over 20 years ago with a Bachelor in Chemical Engineering, one of my first encounters with the educational scenery was to take and pass the GED Exam in English. I was able to read and write in English, but lacked the ability to fully understand it or speak it. One of my greatest assets is definitely my own experience in learning and teaching the language; nothing can surpass that.

There is only so much I can say about myself; nothing can take the place of an actual tutoring session... Let's meet!

GED

After arriving to America over 20 years ago with a Bachelor in Chemical Engineering, one of my first encounters with the educational scenery was to take and pass the GED Exam.

For over 15 years, I have been helping GED candidates to take and pass this test. My greatest asset is definitely my Math skills, although I am also an experienced writer with a touch for creative essays.

There is only so much I can say about myself; nothing can take the place of an actual tutoring session... Let's meet!

Prealgebra

I have been involved in tutoring for most of my adult life, without even knowing it.

My actual involving in the pre-Algebra skills came after I starting including ono-on-one as well as small groups of students into my daily teaching activities.

Every year I involve myself into bigger and more demanding challenges but pre-Algebra remains one of my favorites and deeper rooted subjects in the whole Math scenery.

Nothing can take the place of an actual tutoring session; let's meet.

Spanish

I have been involved in tutoring for most of my adult life, without even knowing it.

Deep knowledge of the Spanish language was always an essential thing at home because my mother was an elementary Spanish teacher.

I grew up surrounded by books and grammar as well as punctuation rules.

It was my thorough knowledge of the Spanish language that made it so easy learning the English language.

Nothing can take the place of an actual tutoring session; let's meet..
