About Andrea

As a tutor, my goal is to provide a student-centered learning environment.

In addition to my work as a writing tutor, I teach English as a Second Language. Before moving to Frederick, I taught composition and creative writing as well as tutored for ten years at several colleges in South Florida. My teaching experience honed my ability to present lessons to students with diverse skill levels, backgrounds, and needs.

No matter where students start their writing process, my intention is to allow them to find their voice. We collaborate to find their work’s direction. Students often benefit from this pedagogy because they build confidence in their abilities as a writer. They learn to make decisions, to own their writing. I use open-ended questions to guide sessions, and I instruct students on how to practice effective study strategies such as taking notes and outlining. The goal is to get them involved in the learning process. Most importantly, I try to respond to what the student needs.

I am available for tutoring in several subject areas including English as a Second Language, Spanish, computer literacy, and research skills.

Sessions generally take place during weekday afternoons.

Starting rate is $50/hour for in-person tutoring and $25 for an online session.

I look forward to supporting your academic 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. 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.

Literature

I have a B.A. in Literature.

Proofreading

I am a detail-oriented and knowledgeable proofreader with 15 years of experience.

Spanish

I am a native speaker of Spanish. My professional experience includes working as a translator in nonprofits, social service organizations, and academic institutions. In addition, I have also traveled to South America where I further developed my language skills. Tutoring experience includes working with students to improve pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar.

Writing

My educational background includes an M.F.A. in Creative Writing. As a graduate student, I taught creative writing courses. In addition, I taught composition for almost a decade and worked with students to improve their essay writing skills. I can support students at any stage of the writing process. We may work on brainstorming, outlining, note-taking, research, thesis statements, development of ideas, topic sentences, transitions, paragraph structure, grammar, punctuation, and any other writing-related issues.
