About Camara

I have been tutoring and mentoring kids between the ages of 6-18 for the last 10 years. During my matriculation at Spelman College in Atlanta, GA, I volunteered at the Marian Wright Edelman Center on campus as well as Woodson Elementary. I assisted the teachers with lessons, helped with special projects and served as an additional leader in the classroom. After graduating from Spelman, I started to tutor kids in the Atlanta area. I worked for several companies and tutored three kids simultaneously in various subjects. Once I relocated to the New Jersey area in 2008, I worked for WyzAnt tutors, where I tutored an 18 year old in American History and a 12 year old in reading and math. In 2010, I moved to New York City and tutored three kids at Democracy Prep in various subjects. I currently mentor 7th graders from Future Leaders Institute in New York by helping them connect to literacy through the art of media.
I believe my experience mentoring and tutoring kids makes me an excellent candidate for helping your child. As far as my professional experience, I work at HBO in International marketing as an Marketing Manager. I also graduated from New York University with my Master of Science in Integrated Marketing. I look forward to working with you and your child to help him or her achieve their full academic potential.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I graduated from Spelman College with a B.A. in English. I have been a tutor for the last six years and have helped kids between the ages of 8 and 18 in various subjects, including English, study skills, American History, math and elementary studies. All of the kids I tutored have seen vast improvements in their studies. Prior to tutoring, I volunteered at a daycare center for two years and first grade classroom. During those experiences, I would read to the children, help with activities and assist the teacher with lessons plans. I even had the opportunity to teach some of my own lessons.

English

I have a B.A. in English from Spelman College. During my tenure at Spelman, I served as the Vice President of the English Club and helped to bring recognition to the organization across the campus. I was also a contributor to the school newspaper. I believe it is essential to be able to read and write, both skills that are achievable with proper guidance and practice.

Marketing

I currently work at HBO as a Marketing Manager, where I implement international marketing initiatives to drive annual multimillion dollar sales goals to get HBO content distributed worldwide. I have worked at HBO for seven years, and have held four positions within that time. Some of my projects have included website redesign and management, social/digital project integration and global tradeshow management.

In 2012, I received my Master of Science from New York University in Integrated Marketing with a concentration in Brand Management.

Study Skills

Having strong study skills can truly make all the difference in how well a student performs academically. In order to effectively study it is important to develop strong time-management and organizational skills. It is also important to create an environment that is conducive to studying, so that there are little or no distractions. I was able to hone my studying skills while attending New York University part-time and working at HBO full-time.
