About Moya

I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to tutor students again. I have experience working with students K-12 in the areas of Math and Reading. I enjoy helping students unlock their potential, gaining the skills and confidence to accomplish their goals. I currently hold a Master's Degree in Clinical Forensic Psychology and will soon have a doctorate degree.

I had the opportunity to work, for two years, as a senior tutor for Alternatives Unlimited, a private tutoring company. I tutored children ages K-12 with low standardized test scores in Math and Reading. This program utilized learning techniques and activities based on mathematics and reading concepts appropriate for each grade level. Each student's growth and improvement was measured using their pre-test scores in concepts associated with mathematics and reading. Each child was also given weekly assistance on homework assignments or projects currently being reviewed in their classrooms as needed. Many students made significant progress in their academic aptitude and standardized test scores. More importantly, each student gained confidence in their abilities with the help and support of their families. Each student was tutored in their own home which allowed parents and other family members to support the child in their problem areas and to be more involved in the learning process. It was a pleasure to see the children being excited to learn and to see parents proud of their children.

As an undergraduate student, I tutored high school and community college students in the areas of math, history, biology, psychology, and public speaking. I specialize in all areas of general and abnormal psychology, I have an easy going tutoring style and an upbeat personality, however I have expectations of each student. I will hold every student accountable to insure that they improve and progress at their own pace. I tailor my tutoring style to each student and recognize that every student learns in a different way.

I have a 24-hr cancellation policy; with the option of rescheduling within 48-hours at no charge. I am willing to provide in home tutoring in an quiet environment that promotes learning. I will also meet at locate libraries, or schools of the student's choosing.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope to work with you in the near future!

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.

Algebra 1

I like to use flash cards with students and encourage them to practice at home. I take the time to figure out what your specific needs are in algebra and I create exercises to match.

American History

I have taken Advanced Placement History and received credit for this exam. I have a fun way of understanding the progression of American History.

ASVAB

I have many helpful materials for students preparing to take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery. My current background and experience in tutoring general math, science, and English may be valuable for the following test sections: General Science, Arithmetic Reasoning, Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, Mathematics Knowledge, and Assembling Objects.

Prealgebra

I am comfortable with the following Prealgebra concepts:

Number Theory- divisibility, factors, least common denominator, ratios, etc.
Arithmetic- rounding, order of operations, multiplying and dividing fractions, mixed numbers
Algebraic Expressions- distributive property, simplifying expressions
Proportions, percents, multi-step word problems, plane figures, angle relationships, Pythagorean Theorem, polynomials, finding slope.

Psychology

I currently have a Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology and I am completing my doctorate in this area. I enjoy helping students to understand this subject and I can tutor students at all levels, including college level psychology.
