About Sofia

Hello! My name is Sofia. I recently moved here from Florida. In May 2016, I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Florida State University with my degree in Psychology and Sociology and a minor in English. While in high school, I passed the tests for 7 AP courses while taking college courses at my local community college and scored a 2020 on my SAT.

I strongly believe that building a strong relationship with students is a crucial part of being a tutor. That's because when tutoring, the most important thing is to understand the student's perspective. What are the obstacles in this course for this student? How can we teach this in a way that avoids those obstacles? Often times, you have to be very creative! Which is perfectly okay, because learning is not "one size fits all".

I have previous experience tutoring psychology courses (from cognitive psychology to neuroscience), as well as literature courses but am open to tutoring other subjects that I am competent in. In addition to that, I am currently working in higher education and am sometimes tasked with proofreading and editing professional statements and entrance essays, so I am available to help with writing as well.

Please feel free to contact me and ask as many questions as you want. I will be more than happy to see if I can be of some help to you! Thank you for reading!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Public Speaking

I am currently working as an actor and have been involved in acting (including a multitude of group projects which required extensive guidance and leadership) since 5th grade. Additionally, in both middle school and high school I excelled in public speaking and student government. I also did well in the public speaking in college. I understand that public speaking is 80% preparation and 20% confidence. I believe that assisting students with their preparation is the key to building confidence and improving public speaking skills.

Reading

I scored 5's on the reading portion of the FCAT for five consecutive years.

Sociology

I have a degree in Sociology. While achieving that degree, I was involved in several group projects which involved creating a lesson in which you were tasked with teaching the class new material using what you learned in the class. Through this, as well as assisting professors in class, I have developed a sense of how to assess students' obstacles and working together toward finding the answer.
