About Isabella

One of my favorite aspects about tutoring, mentoring and teaching is seeing the 'light bulb' in the other person - what I like to call it the 'I got it' moment. My sister always told me she wasn't good in math and she could never pass her class. I told her: "you have to believe that you can do it". We studied for weeks and soon she learned that she could not only solve the math problems, but that she was quite intuitive! My passion from teaching comes from believing that you can do anything you want if you put your mind into it. Whether is to meet a class requirement and finish the assignment, or is to pass that exam to lead you to your dream school or simply learn something new I believe we all have what it takes to learn new things.

My areas of expertise are include Algebra 1 and 2, Portuguese language, Microsoft Excel and Piano. This is quite a mix :) In the next paragraphs I will share a little bit of my experience and exposure to these fields.

I am a Structural Engineering degree and hold an MBA. I have experience practicing engineering, running budgets and data analysis. I have always loved both math and music from a young age, and although it may seem unrelated, music is quite mathematical, and solving mathematical/engineering problems can be quite creative.

I used to tutor my friends in high school and helped my sister in college as well. I love teaching and helping people realize that they can do it! Math can be fun :) In addition, I use Excel for nearly everything: from making tables, to charts, budgets, and analyzes. It's an incredible program and I enjoy the problem solving aspect of it. One weak point: pivot tables! I know the basics but not advance, so I won't falsely advertise. Everything else on Excel though, I can help.

I can also teach Portuguese Language (Brazilian Portuguese). I am a native of Brazil (born and raised). I have experience teaching Portuguese to adult professionals both for professional and leisure purposes. Whether you'd want to learn for a vacation, or for work, I can certainly help.

In addition, I can also teach piano lessons. I am a classically trained pianist since the age of six. I've taught piano for the past 15 years, and I have been playing piano for over 25 years, both jazz and classical. I love teaching, and performing. I have taught all levels and all ages. It's never too late to learn!

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out. I am new to Wyzant, but seems like a great way to find new students!

Thank you kindly,
Isabella
