About Edgar

I've recently graduated from BYU-I with a B.A. in Literary Studies. I have also received Associate Degrees in English and Spanish. I believe that in today's world, too many of our rising generation are putting down books and picking up tablets. One thing that I love to do is read and to inspire others to gain a love for reading as well.

My tutoring experience includes tutoring college level students in the Spanish language as well as in many levels of English courses offered at my former university. I have also tutored elementary students who were primarily in the 1st or 2nd grade in Language Arts. Along with tutoring, I volunteer teach bi-weekly at a local elementary school.

My method of tutoring includes positive and negative reinforcement. By that I mean praise and disapproval. I've found that the people I tutor tend to excel when they are praised openly for their improvement and strive to excel when they are made to feel shame for not performing to the level that they know they could.

My goal is not just to help students improve their grades, but to gain confidence in themselves and be able to achieve their full potential.
