About Victoria

Hello! I want to take a few moments to share with you some of my background and my approach to tutoring. Graduating with highest distinction from the University of Illinois at Chicago, I received both my Bachelor of Arts and my state teaching certification. I have experience working in Chicago Public Schools. I also have worked at three universities, in both academic and administrative positions. Throughout my career, I have worked as a tutor and have over fifteen years of experience.
As a tutor, I have had the opportunity to work with a wide range of students, meeting a variety of goals. I have students from all over the world. Some of my students are gifted, special needs and English second language. I tutor for math, reading, writing and science from middle school through college, and I also tutor for standardized exams, such as the ACT, SAT, GED, GRE, ASVAB, TOEFL, TOEIC and TEAS. I also have experience structuring curriculum and working with both homebound and homeschooled students.

What is adaptive teaching?
Whether you are pursuing a specific goal on a standardized test or in a class, you need a suitable learning environment. All too often, we are in an setting that supports only one learning style, and this can cause us to miss critical information or foundational concepts. My approach is simple: adaptive teaching. As learners, we all have a unique learning style, and we learn best when concepts are provided in a way that best fits that style. I work with each of my students to identify what their learning style is and help them to understand it for themselves. I then adapt my teaching style to better suit their needs. This not only assists in long term retention of material, but helps each of my students to better understand their studying needs.

As an educator, I have the priviledge of helping people to realize goals that they once thought were impossible, and I look forward to getting to know you and helping you achieve your goals!

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.

Microsoft Access

Microsoft Access is a relational database management program, which allows users to create and manage their own databases. This database can then be used to create reports and track ongoing trends. I am highly versed in multiple versions of Microsoft Access, including the most recent version of the software. I have utilized this program in a professional setting, creating databases to track multiple aspects of company statistics, clients, and finances. I have also utilized the program to create company financials and track ordering trends.

Microsoft Outlook

Microsoft Outlook is an email client that has grown to become a personal information manager. It can work as a stand alone application or it can be linked with a network. The program allows users to access emails from multiple sources, track schedules and tasks, enter contact information, and utilize journal and note features. I am highly versed in multiple versions of this program, including the most recent version. I have utilized Microsoft Outlook both professionally and personally for over ten years.
