The University of Massachusetts Boston (Psychology)
Hi! My name is Sandy. I am a recent college graduate from the Boston area. During my time in school I spent three wonderful years as a tutor at the Boys and Girls Club. I fell in love with the atmosphere, energy, and overwhelming sense of pride as I watched many of my students grow day after day. I tutored in all the major subjects for kids K-8 and even directed an end of the year children's theatre production! I like to make learning fun, and more importantly, I like to help kids realize their own potential and help them figure out how they learn, individually. I believe each student is capable of achieving what they want, and I love helping them get there!
Books are my passion. I spend virtually all of my free time reading. As someone who has also tutored english in the past, I am aware of how students, especially younger children, grasp new words, concepts and grammatical rules. As a researcher during my undergraduate career, I also assisted in writing some published work in the field of cognitive neuropsychology, specifically in the Journal of Child Development. While collecting data for this project, I had the chance to interact with many kids at the Museum of Science in Boston and speak with them one on one about how they learn.
As an avid reader and curious scientist, history is very important to me. Along with history being my best subject in highschool, I also helped teach history to many students in the Boston area as a part of the Boys and Girls Club Afterschool tutoring program.
Please do not hesitate to get in contact with me! I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge with eager students, and I of course cannot wait to learn from them as well. School can be pretty hard. And the material can get frustrating. But sometimes all it takes to grasp the information is to learn how to learn :) Hi! My name is Sandy. I am a recent college graduate from the Boston area.

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.
