About Neva

I am a young, creative, passionate educator. I have been teaching high school history for the past three years in South Los Angeles. During this time, I've mastered explaining and simplifying complicated material to students. My classes are very engaging and interactive. In other words, it's not unusual for me to use movement or music in my lessons. I am a multi-faceted and energetic person. I think outside of the box. In my spare time, I weightlift and DJ. I am in graduate school furthering my career in the field of education. I've spent the past three years helping my students through all aspects of the college application process. Thanks for reading through my profile. Please message me with any inquiries. I am flexible with scheduling.

I have taught World History, U.S. History, AP U.S. History, Government, Economics, AP Government and Leadership.

Are you struggling to write your personal statement or document-based essay? I can help you improve all reading and writing skills! Please contact me for more information.

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.

American History

I have taught both US History and AP US History for three years. I majored in Social Studies Education at Boston University. I've taken many history classes to enhance my knowledge of how to teach history to all students.

Government & Politics

I have attended an AP conference on the Government and Politics course. I taught the course for two years. I have taught similar courses for three years. I graduated with a social studies education degree from Boston University.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have been editing and creating power points for the past ten years. In addition, I am an expert in Prezi, Google Slides and all of Google Drive programs. Some of these programs include Docs, Slides, Forms and Classroom.

World History

I recently taught 10th grade world history. My students were challenged to think critically about different aspects of the modern world. World history helps students better understand the world we live in today. I can help students grasp the bigger concepts so that it is easier to succeed.

Writing

I have been editing personal statements for three years. Many of my students have gone on to attend schools including UCLA, UC Berkeley, UC Riverside, UC Irvine, UC San Diego and UC Santa Barbara.

Excellent tutor!

Neva is great. She is very knowledgable and patient. She makes me think about analysis instead of telling me the answers. She encourages me to take my answers further into analysis. Neva has been very accommodating with hectic schedule.
