Hello. I have been a tutor since high school (over 10 years, over 14 if you include high school) and have tutored in fine art, algebra, (including pre-algebra, algebra 1 & 2), geometry, and have also helped students with upcoming tests such as the STAARS, TAKS, GED, ASVAB, SAT and ACT. I am currently tutoring students in the following courses: Criminal Forensics, psychology, physical science, mathematics, physics, and research methods. I am proficient grammatically and am able to help with the writing of papers, essays in all subjects, as well as research papers and labs. I am on my way to getting my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology, following three years of majoring in Astrophysics. I am also able to tutor in courses such as physics, and calculus. My minor is Anthropological Linguistics, so I am very adept at language structure, and have a high proficiency in the English language. I have taken 6 years of German and 1 year of Latin. I have tutored students who did not speak English, and if it is a mathematical based course, I am willing to do so again. If ESL is requested, I only ask that the student have a very basic understanding of the English language. I understand a bit of Spanish and can communicate in German so ESL in either language would not be a problem at all. I also have a translator available for Spanish students, if needed.

I believe that the greatest problem students face today is the approach teachers take towards teaching various subjects. I prefer to show the student multiple ways to understand a given concept. This way they can look at the problem from a new direction. I strive to not only help a student with their current courses and upcoming tests, I also focus on the student's retention of the material and confidence in their abilities.

I am available 24/7 for any questions and am very willing to help any way I can, whether by phone or through email, to supplement my tutoring.

The ability to instill confidence doesn't come from the teacher, it comes from the student. When the student understands a subject, and that light goes on in their eyes, it is awe inspiring. I have been working with a wonderful young woman. The only thing lacking in her studies was confidence. She is intelligent, has a sharp wit, quick to understand complex concepts, yet she lacked confidence... read more

Back in high school, my first tutoring assignment was for a young Spanish boy, who did not speak a word of English. I come from a mixed background; my mother is Spanish and my father is British. Now I have heard the Spanish language spoken by my mother and her family, but I never really learned and only understood a little, spoke even less. Luckily, the subject he needed help with was algebra... read more
