About Destiny

As a sophomore liberal arts student at Rollins College, my love for learning has also blossomed into a love of teaching. A double major in English and Philosophy with a Pre-Law emphasis, I plan to graduate with honors and move on to an Ivy League Law School upon graduating. I have been a consistent Honor's student and maintain a record inclusive of A's in the majority of my courses. I'm also an active debate team member, people person, and often tutor my peers in Logic, Philosophy, and English courses in my spare time. I have been a practicing musician for 12 years and my principal instrument is the flute. A dedicated student in all of my courses, I aim to excel in order to succeed in the long term, regarding my present grades and achievements and the law schools and therefore career opportunities they will open up for me.
I enjoy helping others, which is my foremost reason for wanting to become an attorney in the future. As far as the present is concerned, I enjoy being able to aid others in a range of subjects that I am comfortable with and enjoy talking about. I have a love for language and philosophical concepts, like logic, and take pride in being able to share that with those who would like to understand the subjects further. For the past two years of my college career as well as during high school as an NHS member, I tutored other students in my classes. I find that tutoring in a one on one setting promotes comfortability for the learner and allows a personable relationship to ensue that makes the learning process most beneficial for both parties. I use a guiding, Socratic method in my tutoring that consists of questioning the student in order to prompt a realization of the mistakes they have made, or understand a better way in which to approach a proposed problem. In terms of speed, I prefer to move at a slow pace and make sure the lesson at hand has been fully comprehended before moving on to the next question or focus, so the foundations of each subject are well lain to be built upon later.
In music lessons I focus on the ability to read music correctly and easily, identify tone and notes quickly, presentation when playing in a concert situation, and technical precision in terms of how to correctly double tongue, vibrato, present a depth of sound, and convey emotion. As both flute section leader and field sergeant in my High School marching band I understand the varying needs of a musician who plays for a concert audience versus a the crows of football games, and can cater their techniques to fit each situation accordingly. Additionally, I understand the level of stress as well as discomfort that can often accompany performing in front of crowds, and take great pride in my ability to tell hopeful soloists of my tricks for success in competitions and events such as Solo & Ensemble.

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

During the school year I tutor many of my peers in their English classes helping them to understand the nuances of the literature they read in class as well as aiding them in writing essays and honing grammar skills. Towards the en of each year I edit my classmates theses in order to help in the writing process, and constantly am working to better my English skills in studying for the LSAT as well as casual reading. If you have any questions I would be more than happy to answer them. Have a wonderful day!

Flute

I have been playing flute for the last 12 years, and in high school I earned superiors (the highest possible achievement) in both solos and ensembles at state competitions. My senior year of high school I held the positions of both flute section leader and field sergeant. As field sergeant I, along with the other field sergeants made sure that the formations of our field show looked as they were supposed to during football season and that our music sounded great. During concert season I would meet with each of the flutists and conduct lessons on our music so they each could perform their part well.

Logic

I took a formal logic course fall of my first year of college, and ended the class with a 110% grade. As a result my professor recommended I tutor his course in future semesters at the Rollins tutoring center, and for the last 3 semesters I have done so. In tutoring students since then I have improved my logic skills and continue to do so as I am now preparing for my LSAT exam.

Reading

As an English and philosophy major at Rollins College, I am constantly reading, writing, and analyzing literature to hone my skills. I tutor my peers often mainly in writing, but also in reading comprehension for those taking English classes. I have also helped my younger sister who is now 13 years old with preparing for reading tests, spelling, and writing papers since grade school.

Spanish

I am partly of Puerto Rican and Spanish descent, so I not only speak Spanish but have knowledge of the cultural aspects of Hispanic American living. I took Spanish up to AP Spanish language, then one advanced semester in college in order to expand my knowledge of the grammar, sentence structure and intricacies of the language in reading, writing and speaking. In school I often helped my peers with their Spanish assignments, and am now teaching two young boys how to speak, read and write Spanish as a second language.
