About Adriana

My kindergarten teacher's description of me was simple: "She likes to teach the other kids." From age 5 to now, there have been plenty of changes in my life but one constant has been my desire to help those who want to learn. In elementary school, I was the teacher's special helper and assisted her in grading classwork and helping other students with assignments. By high school, I served as an academic tutor and as a Big Sister to a neighboring school where I tutored a young boy. During college, I was the unofficial Expository writing tutor among various friends and associates because I was the only one that actually enjoyed the writing intensive course and excelled in it. Fast forward a few years, developing and managing an entire tutoring program with one of the nation's most notable nonprofit organizations, and a Master's degree, this is where you come into play.

Who are you? You are a parent, aunt, uncle, brother, sister, or friend. You may be a student or know a student who needs help. You are someone who needs assistance in anything relating to writing or reading. Perhaps you want to update your resume and cover letter. Maybe you need help with history, law, or government.

I have undergraduate degrees in both Communication and Political Science and Master's in Public Administration.

My method of tutoring: I am no-nonsense in my approach. There is always a way to integrate fun during the lesson but I am extraordinarily focused when it comes to getting through material. Prepare for our first session to be lighthearted but I will be asking key questions to understand your needs. Let's succeed together!

Hope to hear from you soon!

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.

Bible Studies

In addition to being of the Christian faith, I also took a college level theological class on the New Testament. I took the class because I was the top ranking child in the Nazarene district of New York for Bible quizzing. I held this position for 3 years and in order to be at this position, I had to know the books of the bible, verses of specific books, and historical context.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored elementary children and have tutored younger children for the past 5 years. I have a high success rate and am always willing to work with the parents for scheduling. In addition to my years of experience, I have worked closely with an elementary school teacher in developing activities and lesson plans for children ages 6-13. Through these plans, I worked one on one with children during their homework. I recently held a position as an academic tutor to 300 children in an after-school program.

Social Studies

I have a degree in Political Science and consistently scored in the 90th percentile in Social Studies standardized exams during elementary school. I also was in AP American History in high school and am pursuing a law degree.

Study Skills

I am an effective study skills tutor. I've assisted students from elementary to college level with tips on how to study and have yielded positive results. I have a organizational system of getting tasks done. Students that I've helped have passed classes, improved in skills, and one was recently accepted into medical school.
