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.

Send me a message, and we can begin finding solutions for you today!

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.
