About Sonia

I recently graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a double major in global studies and Spanish. I have strong analytical skills as demonstrated by my scientific background as well as a strong humanities background in international studies. I have excellent written and communication skills with extensive foreign language skills, especially in Spanish.

I have always had an interest in education and teaching, which is why I am excited to help other students. I am available to tutor in a variety of subjects including math, English (reading and writing), science, Spanish, and test prep. I believe I have the skills to be a good, effective tutor. I have not only taken many standardized tests before, including the SAT, but have also taken multiple SAT subject tests and AP classes and received high scores in all of them. Thus, I truly understand the requirements of standardized exam prep, and will cater my teaching methods to help my students achieve at their highest level possible.

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.

Study Skills

I have acquired excellent study skills over my academic career. As a recent college graduate, I understand the importance of being organized and managing one's time well in order to succeed in school. I have excellent time management skills and this is a skill I feel that I could teach to other students in order to facilitate their success.

One important skill I would suggest to my students is making a schedule and blocking off times for studying specific subjects. This will help them organize themselves and make sure they get an adequate amount of studying done for each class. By helping them use a planner or google calendar to create a schedule and block off time for each class, this will help ensure they stay ahead in their classes.

Another crucial skill is organization. I would help my students organize themselves for each class by having a separate folder (or binder) and notebook for each class so they can keeps their notes and class materials organized. This will help them when preparing for tests and exams.

Wonderful tutor - recommend HIGHLY

We hired Sonia to help my daughter with anatomy, although I have no doubt Sonia would be an excellent resource in any science subject. My daughter's grades immediately improved prompting her teacher to ask, "What's your secret weapon?" It was Sonia. Sonia was on time for every session, came ready to teach, and had a great upbeat attitude my daughter responded to in a big way. he is the best tuto
