About Nalda

I have a great passion for both teaching and learning that has grown with me as I have pursued two Master's Degrees and raised four children to be passionate learners themselves. I have learned to accommodate all of the learning styles through my years as a professor in community colleges and universities. I have worked with students from all walks of life, and I have counseled individuals, families, groups, and challenged populations. I have worked as an statistics tutor when pursuing my MA in sociology and as an athletic tutor at Arizona State University while pursuing my MC in Counseling.

I pride myself on my flexibility and ethics. I do not take a job I can not complete satisfactorily, and I will not continue in a tutoring position where I feel I am not doing the student sufficient good.
I have a warm and open nature which allows me to build a ready rapport with most people, and I find that my easygoing nature encourages students to set individualized goals that they can reasonable achieve with the right support and encouragement.

I look forward to helping you be successful in your educational adventure.

Sincerely,
Nalda
