About Lorena

I understand that my students would rather update their Instagram accounts than work on their homework. They can spend hours looking at a blank page and not know how to get started. And they have tried so many times with few successes that they are now frustrated and discouraged.

As a tutor, I help my students understand the difference between tone and mood in a story, develop a step-by-step guide for completing their research essays, complete a reading comprehension homework packet on-time and with ease, and practice test-taking and essay writing strategies for the SAT. And with many other skills and strategies.

Having tutored numerous students (from K-12 to college) for a total of over 750 hours, I know that every student needs an instructor, a mentor, and an advocate. As a tutor, I juggle all three roles for my students to guarantee that they are provided adequate support for each situation they encounter.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Study Skills

Through my tutoring experience, I have helped students of all ages with basic study skills. I have worked with them on setting a study schedule, providing tips on note-taking, explained how best to organize their information and studying resources, and used resources, such as flash cards and books, to improve the effectiveness of studying.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor. Excellent!

Although I have only met with her once, I have learned an incredible amount. She's approachable, wise, and down to earth. I would recommend her for any reading/writing test prep. Excellent tutor!
