About Lidia

I have a MSc in Physics and my research experience is in astrophysics. Spanish is my native language. I started tutoring since I was in third year in college, my dad (who's also a physicist) worked as a teacher for 40 years so I guess I inherited his passion for teaching. The first student I had, a middle school student, who used to fail math every year, and then his mom contacted me and we started working together, by the end of the year he was one of the best students of his class and now he has a degree in marketing and is a very successful professional. Once he told me that the most important thing he learned by working together with me was to trust his capacity and never doubt of his intelligence and that's what I try to teach to my students, that they are capable of achieve their goals but we must work hard to get them.

Since that first student I have had a lot more than I can remember, I have also taught at college level the subjects of mathematics, physics and astronomy. Back in my country (I'm from El Salvador) we have a gifted kids program, I worked in that program teaching modern physics, general physics and electromagnetism. Because of my work in that program I was awarded with a Fulbright scholarship to attend WSU, where I used to tutor athletes and as a teaching assistant of the astronomy class.

If you need help to improve your knowledge in math and science, don't hesitate in contact me, it will be my pleasure to work with you. I have time flexibility just contact me and we can settle the best schedule for you.

She was patient and helpful.

She helped to find a easier way to multiply with percents, and helped in division. She waited until the problem was done she did not go immediately to the other one, she waited. She explains things very clearly.
