Dear Parents and Students,
My tutoring/teaching experience:
I have extensive tutoring experience in a variety of fields. I'm certified to Tutor K-8, High School and Grad. Test Prep (e.g. GED, SAT, ACT, PSAT, SSAT, ISEE, GRE, MCAT, GMAT, ASVAB). Also certified to Tutor Biology, Ecology, Microbiology, Geography, Government & Politics, Economics, Public Speaking, Elementary (K-6), Elementary Math, Elementary Science, Prealgebra, Spanish, English, and ESL/ESOL. I have tutored in both English and Spanish to children of all ages, as well as college students and adult professionals of diverse cultures. Through these tutoring and teaching positions, I have learned how to best teach each age group. In addition to my Bachelors degree, I also have two Masters degrees (Summa Cum Laude & Magna Cum Laude) from UCLA and the University of Puerto Rico respectively.
What makes you a great tutor?
I am a highly motivated, enthusiastic and dedicated educator who wants all students to be successful learners. I am committed to creating a classroom atmosphere that is stimulating and encouraging to students. One of my strongest skills is my ability to effectively communicate difficult concepts in an easy to understand way.
My tutoring style centers on the fact that each student DESERVES THE BEST EDUCATION POSSIBLE. My teaching approach is very flexible and ADAPTS TO THE STUDENT'S NEEDS. Rather than fill the student with facts they will forget, I will help the student master a skill before moving on to more advanced learning. This ensures the student is truly understanding the content, and developing the skills to learn and solve problems independently.
Together, WE WILL BREAK THE FAILURE CHAIN by boosting confidence which will further strengthen the student's motivation to learn. Learning should not be boring! As a tutor, I will CREATE A LEARNING ENVIRONMENT THAT IS BOTH CHALLENGING AND FUN. Dear Parents and Students,

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.
I have personally taken this test a few times and scored OVER 90%. The last time I took the test I scored 99% out of a maximum of 100%. I can help you do the same; it is not that difficult!
I've been involved in teaching-related positions throughout my professional life. The K-6 and middle school age groups are particularly appealing to me, because students are very impressionable, interested in learning and open to new concepts. I enjoy tutoring students and helping them build confidence in their ability to achieve academically. As a Tutor, our challenge is to create a challenging and fun learning environment for students.
I am very well qualified and fully bilingual (English & Spanish). I have worked as a Teacher/ Tutor/ Mentor at different levels (from K-6 to university). I have earned a Bachelor Degree in Science and two Masters Degrees (M.A. from UCLA and a M.S. from the University of Puerto Rico) both with excellent GPA's. In addition, I have post-baccalaureate studies in Communications from the University of Miami also with excellent GPA.
The 5 STARS rating ( the highest given by WyzAnt ) I earned for teaching Elementary Math. To be successful, a tutor must be specially patient and creative with the children he is trying to help. I have a proven track record with WyzAnt in this regard.

I feel confident to be qualified to tutor the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) because of my academic and professional background. I have successfully tutored similar entrance examinations with great success (e.g., SAT, ACT, PSAT, and SSAT).
All of these tests are structured to test the student's abilities and knowledge in key areas: Verbal/Reading Comprehension, Quantitative Reasoning/Mathematics Achievement, and some may have an Essay section.
The key for me to being a successful tutor in this specific subject has been my effectiveness in communicating difficult concepts in an easy to understand manner. Also very important, is to adapt your teaching methods to the student's learning needs.
Thank you for your consideration.
I feel confident to be qualified to tutor the Medical College Admissions Test because of my academic and professional background. I have a Bachelor of Science degree with a Specialization in Biology. I also have one year of Medical School from Eugenio Maria de Hostos Medical School in Puerto Rico. In order to be admitted to this School, an entrance Exam (very similar to the MCAT ) had to be taken and passed. I accomplished it successfully. Although I enjoyed my medical studies, I decided to complete a Master of Science in Environmental Studies instead.
My experience tutoring and teaching problem solving, critical thinking and science concepts and principles (specially in the Biological and Physical sciences) have also prepared me well to
teach the MCAT.
Thank you for your consideration.
During most of my professional career as an educator and teacher I have effectively practiced public speaking in front of a variety of publics and nationalities. In addition, and outside of the teaching profession, I have more than 10 years of experience as a recruiter and sales associate with Nielsen TV Ratings and Mind Streams.
These combined experience and training has given me the knowledge and confidence to know what it takes to be an effective public speaker. I am confident I can help others do the same. Thank you.
I am fluent in Spanish, as it is my native language. I have been involved in teaching-related positions throughout my college and professional experience. I have helped students learn Spanish using either a person-to-person or group approach tailored to simulate a variety of real life scenarios. This is how we used to learn when we were children, and I have found it to be very effective.
