I am an alumnus of Johns Hopkins University, graduating in 2010 with a Bachelor's of Arts degree in Biology and a minor in Spanish. I am currently a graduate student at Drexel University pursuing a Master's of Science degree in Human Nutrition. My knowledge is extensive in the sciences, Spanish language, and Elementary English and Mathematics. For the biological sciences, I am able to tutor Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, and Nutrition. I am also ESL certified and have experience as an ESL instructor to Hispanic immigrants, making use of Spanish language when necessary for direct translations.
I am very eager to work with students who are motivated and ready to learn. I let the students' interests be my guide when creating a plan for the tutoring session because it is important that they are engaged. I like to use different activities and models that are practical to the subject and everyday life.
Having had prior teaching experience in a Montessori school, I understand the importance of guided learning, in which my students would engage in hands-on activities that enhance their social, cognitive, motor, and other developmental skills while I, along with the Head Teacher of the classroom “guided” them. The students were able to learn and progress at their own pace, but were also given individual attention if necessary. My other experience working with children involves being a tutor in third grade English and Mathematics for the 2012 fall term through Champion Learning Center in New York.
