About Rocio

Dear Student:

Welcome to my home page. My name is Rocio M. I have been a teacher for more than 20 years; I have taught Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, and for almost 10 years, Spanish, SAT/ACT preparation and English as a second language. I have also translated a couple of books and manuals into Spanish.
I earned a master's degree in Education after an undergraduate degree in Biochemistry. As for my teaching philosophy, I do my best to to make the subjects fun, applicable and interesting!
I also hold a yoga teacher's certification.

If you are interested in my services, let''s get in touch via Wyzant e-mail. Please send me a note with information about the location for tutoring (I have tutored in public libraries, homes and even cafes,) time and days that would suit you best. Giving me some options and the complete information will help me get back to you faster.

Here is the cancellation or no-show policy that you need to take into consideration if you decide to hire my services:

Cancellation policy:

If the cancellation is the same day of tutoring, 4 h before the tutor arrives to your location there will be a 30 min. charge.

If a student reschedules for a later day or time within the same week, there will be a 20 minute charge.

If tutor is in the proximity of the student's house (place of tutoring) and the tutoring cannot be held for whatever reason, the cancellation charge is 1 h.

Thank you for your understanding, I will locked the schedule every week to give the student continuity and respect for their time.

If you would like to chat before meeting, that is free! Just set up an account with Wyzant and we'll be able to exchange phone numbers, no charge and no compromises.

I would like also to accommodate also small groups of students, this helps with the fee as long as everybody commits to the schedule.

I look forward to assist you in the best possible way!

Sincerely,
Rocio
