Hello there!

My name is Virginia and I'm currently pursuing my Master's in Business Administration and working in Troy. I've been involved in the tutoring field since middle school as I was a struggling student that was trying to balance all my courses and have a social life. My mentors that helped guide me through the courses were the ones that encouraged me to learn and to teach others so I can learn even more. This means that knowing the answer is not enough. You need to be able to understand the concepts and be able to teach another student so everyone can understand. This is how to become a successful student and tutor. With this mentality, I have been tutoring middle school - college students for about 10 years, so I can fulfill my duty to give back to society. My favorite part about tutoring is witnessing a student's confidence evolve as they try on new learning techniques and it pays off in the classroom and at home. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing students succeed and knowing their hard work is worth it!

By partnering with Wyzant, I hope to show students they don't have to be afraid of the material and that with some time and effort, they can achieve the grade they want and how they can inspire fellow students as well. I hope to also work with parents so they can understand their role in the tutor-student relationship because they are just as important. I look forward to working with everyone and making an impact in our community!

Math is not just about knowing how to use a calculator to get the answer. I always work with students on the train of thought and why stating all the steps are important for the long-term. For other courses, like in Science or Reading, I follow similar steps to help the student prepare for any hw and quizzes/tests. My objective in tutoring is not just giving answers so students can pass a class. My methodology of tutoring is helping the student gain confidence, explore new learning tactics, and apply what they learn so they can excel on tests and for the rest of their student career.

Currently, I tutor high school kids in Biology and it is very important for us to create a study schedule every time we meet. That way, they understand their responsibilities at home and can review what we covered during our session as well. I usually follow up later in the week to make sure the student is on track with the schedule and to make any updates as necessary. Let's work together for him to succeed.

I was not a math whiz myself throughout my academic career. Therefore, my tactics and study skills are much more detailed and easy to understand when I do hw assignments and study tests. When I go through math problems, I don't just have the students memorize answers. I walk them through the problem so they can understand the steps and process in order to apply that knowledge to classwork, quizzes, and exams, including for Prealgebra. Practice makes perfect when students can understand the process of how to study and display confidence in/out of the classroom!

Excellent tutor, organised and knowledgeable

I am struggling with high school Biology. She has helped me organize information into manageable chunks. Friendly and flexible. I had to move our session time and she was willing to do so. I recommend her.
