About Lucero

Why do I tutor? When I attended elementary school, I struggled with basic division and multiplication. With some help from the manager where my parents rented an apartment, I slowly began to understand the concept of division and learned to memorize my multiplication tables. Tutors and tutoring is essential for the growth and development of a child or adult. No matter what age we are now, having someone to guide us through the academic challenges is what keeps me in the tutoring field.

Prior to tutoring, I often ask a student what their needs are and where they would like to improve on. Knowing one's weaknesses and strengths allows me to build an agenda that suits the student's capabilities. Pedagogical teaching is a method I use throughout my tutoring sessions. Pedagogical teaching is teaching certain skills and fields of knowledge while using an array of teaching mechanisms. Some strategies are better suited to certain student backgrounds, learning styles and abilities. Effective pedagogy fosters intellectual engagement and supportive tutoring environments.

My hours are flexible.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Handwriting

Have many years of writing in cursive. Methods used include traditional and more modern, such as constant practicing, tracing, and memorizing. More modern practices include making up stories using handwriting and speed games by guessing the correct little cursive letter that matches a big cursive letter.

Sociology

I am currently obtaining my master's degree in sociology at CSU Long Beach. I am familiar with prominent theorists (Marx, Durkheim, etc). I have previously tutored students on the "Sociological Imagination" by C Wright Mills. I have written extensive in-class research papers on matters of race, class, and gender. Tutoring sociology requires a basic foundation that I can go over in detail. The purpose of tutoring sociology is to create a link between micro and macro phenomenon that impact our everyday living and global interactions. To teach sociology, I use my own notes from previous undergraduate classes, all taught by professors and master students, PowerPoints, and I use real-life situations or examples.
