About Andrea


Bilingual Professional and Knowledgeable Spanish-English Tutor

I was born in Peru. My native language is Spanish. I am Chemical Engineer with an MD in Computer Applied to Chemical Engineering. I have more than 25 years of teaching experience.
I have taught 5 years old through 80 years old students from elementary to undergraduate to engineering students to teachers and professionals. I am passionate about teaching students and forge relationships with them that help build a sense of confidence and enable them to grow as learners.

As a student teacher, I created lessons that engaged all learners by applying a variety of teaching methods and utilizing technology resources always. Classroom computers present unique opportunities to help each student achieve success. I formed cooperative learning groups, organized individualized projects, created learning centers and implemented learning style research in every lesson. Alternative assessment methods, such as portfolios, rubrics and performance assessments, in combination with traditional tests, enabled me to evaluate the students individually and comprehensively.

Besides teaching, I conducted research in engineering projects, wrote books, developed formulas to produce chemical products. I am always interested in learning more and more.

I've started tutoring students in elementary school in my country. Then I tutored students in middle and high school in Barcelona, where I studied my master's after receiving a scholarship awarded by Instituto de Cooperacion Iberoamericana in Spain.

My career as educator continued here in the United States of America when I started as a substitute teacher in Hillsborough County Public Schools. Then as a certified teacher I taught Spanish to freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior students. I was recognized and received the Certificate of Excellence for outstanding performance and lasting contribution during the 2007-2008 school year by Sunshine Committee. I still remember those days in the school when my students enjoyed learning a foreign language and applying in every real situation in their lives.

In both my student teaching and tutoring experiences, I met with parents to keep them apprised of their child's accomplishments and areas needing extra attention.

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.

English

I have received the Certificate of Excellence for outstanding performance and lasting contribution during the school year by Sunshine Committee. And I have developed a unique interactive teaching methodology directed to a multicultural audience with a diverse ethnic background to prepare the interview to obtain their American citizenship.

Spanish

After teaching Spanish successfully for several years in different levels, I was recognized and received the Certificate of Excellence for outstanding performance and lasting contribution. I maintained a high student retention rate and I am valued by students. In fact, one senior high school student said, “I hope the college Spanish teacher starting next year is just like you.”
