About Isabel

I have over six years of professional tutoring and instructional experience in community college settings, with high school students, and at Cal State L.A.'s Writing Center. I have a passion for English, writing, and literature as well as experience assisting students with writing in a variety of courses and disciplines.

I have a B.A. in English Literature and am currently pursuing a secondary school teaching credential in English as well as an M.A. in English.

I have taught writing and tutored students ranging from Ph.D. candidates writing dissertations to undergrads in developmental writing courses as well as high school SAT prep students. I have also worked to develop both classroom and supplemental material to improve students’ writing and critical thinking skills.

I consistently receive outstanding written evaluations and verbal feedback. Students tell me I am patient and explain things in ways that are easy to understand. Throughout my work in education, I have found nothing more satisfying than seeing a student comprehend and truly enjoy his or her coursework.

I have a sense of humor and want my students to have fun while learning. I pride myself in my ability to make material relevant and also to show my students how to be successful and to earn high grades in their courses.

Let me know if you think I would be a good match in helping you achieve your academic goals.

Best,
IJ

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.

English

I have over four years of experience tutoring English and a B.A. in English Literature. Throughout my years tutoring in a writing center, I worked closely with professors and their students and know how to mediate effectively between the two. Whatever the assignment, I can help.
