I have tutored for as long as I can remember. In elementary I was in buddy programs with the younger grades. In high school I volunteered to help younger students who were struggling. I opened a summer tutoring program in my home to help the neighborhood kids. In college I was involved in Big Brothers Big Sisters and Boys and Girls Club helping students with homework and mentoring them. I also was tutoring college level students.
After I graduated from undergrad I was working as a family case manager and found a part time job working as a part time teacher and tutor after school at the elementary level.
Now after graduating with my master's I am a school counselor at a school with students from pre-k to 8th grade. I tutor them after school or during school to help them in the areas that they struggle in.
I am interested in being a tutor because I have loans to pay off from graduate school and I know tutoring is flexible and I know I am good at it. I have worked with children my whole life.
I always excelled in this level of Math.
I am a bilingual Spanish speaker. My parents are from Peru. Besides that though I took up to AP Spanish in high school where I scored a 5 on the AP test (the test is scored from 0-5). I took the Spanish test at UIC and tested out of it so they gave me credit hours for the language requirement.
I work close with the teachers at my school so I know the requirements. I work at a pre-k to 8th school so I tutor the students now and know what to expect. I excelled in this area of history. I have taken American History college courses at undergrad level for fun.
Please contact me if you are looking for an understanding, friendly, knowledgable tutor. I love working with all types of children. If you feel the teacher is not paying attention to your child because they process information slower than the other students, or if their attention span is short, or if they have special needs, whatever the situation is I am sure this will be a positive experience for them. I think it is so important that children see that they are capable of succeeding and that is always my goal when I tutor, not necessarily for them to get all A's but for them to gain confidence in their academic abilities.

Raquel was very patient with my son. She is very knowledgeable and explained his Spanish and Spelling homework very well. My son seemed to enjoy spanish. He has not liked this subject because he felt it was too challenging.
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.
