About Iria

I have a BA in Creative Writing from SF State University. My undergraduate work includes an AA in anthropology and an AA in creative writing. My educational background is mostly private school experience that, by choice, transitioned into public school in junior college. My teaching style is one of near total honesty, dedication to the job, and yet to be determined, if we're being honest. Opportunities for more experience would help me have some experience to describe. I've tutored an adult student at Foothill College when I went there for about two quarters. She took English 110 and Spanish 1. While I'm working on my novel, I'm able to tutor part-time hours. I take the time to get to know people. If you want a creative approach, I can give one. The current educational system is not designed for creative people. My students will hopefully be people who understand this. I want to work with people who understand certain things, who think in a certain way. Only this way we can understand each other. I finished my computer repair course at Job Train in September 2011.

Also, as a note to those who expect me to write papers for them, it is spoken that I only edit papers for people. I never write papers. That is cheating. Write your own paper. I can edit over email but I will not write your paper for you. I believe in doing your own work. I will refuse to write papers for people. Thanks again.

Also, I have moved to San Jose. I am planning my travel radius accordingly.

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.

I have a BA in creative writing from San Francisco State University.

Grammar

Grammar is necessary to write well. A foundation of good grammar allows a student to piece together sentences that are constructed well. Grammar allows language to form in a cohesive manner. Grammar means that you can understand a written sentence.

Knowledgable, patient tutor — My son had a English lesson with Iria. My son said she understand me. Sounds like she tries to listen what students says and make their feeling comfortable. ...
