About Sophia

I'm originally from California and graduated from Imperial High School. I got accepted into 5 out of 6 universities I applied for with the goal of becoming a Forensic Pathologist and a degree in Fine Arts. I believe in the fact that knowledge is power and understand the struggle of reaching such high standards in today's schools. But most importantly I understand the feeling students get when they feel like they're are drowning. I've fought for my knowledge by myself for years and I do not wish that upon any student. If I can help them feel that sort of invincibility that comes with success then I will try my best to help them finally breath clearly. I have brought students up that felt there was no chance of success to bounding over students they feared they could never amount up to. This what I love to see from my help.

I have been tutoring since the beginning of my freshman year. In middle school I was placed into advance math and English classes and once entering high school I finished my mathematics in Calculus AB. I begin my tutoring career in music, instrumental, and music theory. I become one of the youngest section leaders in my band, The Pride of Imperial, and was very meticulous on my sectionals (teachings). I play several instruments- Clarinet, Alto, Soprano Clarinet, Base Clarinet, Baritone Saxophone. I taught Colorguard, which is flags, rifles, and saber work combined with several dance styles. I become Co-Captain of my school's Winterguard team in only one season without even auditioning. I am trained in several martial arts and helped girls learn basic self defense tactics for their own protect. I am an artist with multiple scholarship awards. I begin my freshman year in art and by my second year I had already sold four art works, presented pieces at the local community college, received multiple awards by professors, and the school paid for me to attend several college classes to strengthen my knowledge. I tutored many students and was later hired by my school district as a tutor for the homework center on campus.

I have an understanding of MANY subjects. I encourage development and the idea that math is power.

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.

Clarinet

I have been playing the clarinet, as well as it's family members, for 8 years. I have privately tutored and administered 15-25 clarinet players in my band teaching beginners music to helping them audition in honor bands and orchestras. I have performed at the Disney Concert Hall, Festivals, Solo and Ensemble Festivals, and auditioning into Honor Bands, Orchestras, and Choirs. In all the auditions I have been a part of I have always received high chair placings as well as solos.

Public Speaking

As a band section leader and drum major, you speak to large bodies of students, parents, and teacher, promoting ideas, inspiring, and directing to success. I have also been a speaker for Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA), this program promotes the medical field and is used to recruit members into the medical field by hosting benefits and fundraisers to get more students into the medical field.
