I recently moved to Oakland for graduate school after living/working in Houston, TX for three years. I am currently studying in a masters program in nursing (I will receive my MSN and Family Nurse Practitioner license). While I studied musicology in undergrad, I have since changed my career path to the health sciences. I primarily tutor high school math, science and Spanish students, but have also tutored middle school students in the past.
My style tended to be one of encouragement. My primary goal is to nurture a sense of accomplishment and pride in the student, so that they may eventually find themselves engrossed in their studies with little to no need for a tutor. In essence, I try to impart my own passion for learning on the student. Of course the strategy varies with each student: perhaps an athlete student would be better driven by competition, while an artsy child may enjoy discovering that mathematics can really be looked at like a beautiful foreign language.
Outside of math and science, I do also speak/write in German and Spanish and would of course enjoy tutoring in either of those subjects. I grew up speaking Spanish and took some Spanish Lit courses in college, and as for German I studied and worked in Austria for a year and then came back to college where I took a few more semesters of German lit courses.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to working with you!
