About Dorian

Hi Everybody,

My name is Dorian, and I may be the ideal tutor for you!

I graduated from U.C. Davis with a B.A. in Spanish and a minor in Human Development, and I worked for one and a half years as a Tutor/Mentor/Advisor for the U.C. Davis Upward Bound Program. I am currently registered with WyzAnt to tutor Spanish, Math, and Test Prep.

In addition to tutoring, I worked for five years as a Child Development Teacher, one year as a Spanish Teacher, and taught two workshops through the Shasta College Community Education Program in Redding, CA (Spanish for Travelers and Time Management). I have experience with students of all ages and enjoy teaching and tutoring.

In general, I favor the socratic method of teaching, which requires a lot of interaction between the tutor and student, and involves the use of reading and asking specific questions, which allows the student to discover the answers to their questions. I will also model for the student how to complete tasks within their subject. I will also incorporate the student's learning style into how I teach. Through repetition, practice, and tips for future learning, I will show the student how to master their subject.
