About Miguel

Hi! I am currently a senior year at UCSC. I am a History major concentrating on American history with an emphasis on Mexican, Chicano, borderland, and labor history. I have been a writing tutor for almost two years with the Oakes college and UCSC writing programs. I have been trained to work with students from a wide array of backgrounds and special circumstances. Specifically, I have primarily worked with first-year students struggling to pass the university level writing requirement. In my first year at UCSC I also struggled with writing until I was encouraged to go see a tutor. After several sessions with them I began to enjoy writing much more and began to understand the necessity of writing as a skill. Since then I decided to give back by becoming a teacher. Whether it be American history, writing, or the occasional coaching job, teaching has become my passion.

In my work as a tutor I have also developed my practice as a teacher. A typical session will revolve around the needs of the student. The session will follow at the pace of both of us in a manner of a conversation and discussion. The most effective way to learn how to write is through discussion and practicing the act of writing itself. I have learned how to tutor a multiple of subjects at different levels. They include mostly high school and college levels but I can also assist at an elementary level.

Join me so we can both continue learning!
