About Carlos

Hello everyone!

My name is JC and I am a graduate of the University of Califonia, Riverside with a BA in History with my concentration in European & U.S. history. I have 6 years of tutoring experience both in the public and private sector. I was a Public School AVID Tutor for Jurupa Unified School District from September 2010 to September 2012 and I have been an In-Home Private Tutor for a private company from December 2012 to the present.

As an AVID Tutor I worked with grade levels 9-12. I conducted tutorial sessions with collaborative learning and the practice of students teaching other students through discussion of class and text notes. I worked with students in any phase of the writing process, such as: brainstorming, clustering, read arounds, revision, and editing. Assisted students in any subject area, by being familiar with students, textbook, and materials. I assisted in teaching study skills and other aspects of college preparation. Lastly, I set an example of personal excellence and high expectations for AVID students to follow.

As an In-Home Private Tutor, I tutor students in K-12, (one on one and up to two students at a time). I tutor in Reading, Writing, and Mathematics. I create customized learning plans for each individual student which were aligned with the curriculum used in the student's classroom.

I am native in Spanish and English and enjoy tutoring via conversation. I have also basic skills in German.

From August 2013-December 2013, I studied abroad at Freie Universität Berlin in Berlin, Germany and completed the European Studies program there.

I am really interested in the following: languages, maps, flags, travel, basketball, baseball, and soccer.

A personal goal of mine is to travel to every country and territory on planet Earth. So far I have been to 11 countries: U.S.A., Mexico, Germany, Czech Republic, France, Poland, Sweden, the Netherlands, Belgium, China, and Thailand.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
