About Alvaro

Hello,
My name is Alvaro. I am a native Spanish speaker with a multicultural background. I hold two science degrees from the University of California, a bachelors in aquatic biology and a masters in environmental science and management.
I have over ten years of experience tutoring, and I enjoy helping people develop their learning skills in a fun and interactive way. During my college years I worked as math and statistics tutor for the Santa Barbara City College math department, and as a private tutor I helped many students with their learning process. During my graduate training at UCSB I served as teaching assistant for two environmental science courses.
Learning is a process and I believe that the role of teachers and tutors is to help facilitate that process. My goal is to motivate the learning process of the students I work with by making the material relevant to their life experiences, and by creating a fun and challenging environment that engages and promotes their assimilation of the subject at hand. I encourage students to identify mistakes as feedback, to celebrate success, and above all, to have fun learning.
If you are curious about the benefit you receive by working with me, please contact me. I welcome questions and the encourage you, without commitment, to explore if working with me is the best fit for you.
Best,
Alvaro

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.

Spanish

I am a native Spanish speaker with a multicultural background with a passion for reading Latin American authors. My multicultural background, which extends through out the Americas, confers me the skills to understand the different ways Spanish is spoken.
I will help you understand how to structure your sentences and how to improve your modulation and and pronunciation. Students who work with me have fun while being challenged, and their learning process is long term and expedited by having a full immersion experience into Spanish speaking.
