About Lucero

Hello! My name is Lucero and I graduated from Rutgers University with degrees in both English literature and Visual Arts. I've worked as a writing tutor at Rutgers University, an ESL Instructor for Woori Tutor, and I attained my TESOL Certification at TEFL International in Tokyo, Japan, so I've had plenty of training and experience teaching English to students of various backgrounds and skill levels.

Teaching is one thing, and being an encouraging teacher is quite another! Most people known me as a happy, positive person, someone who always tries to inspire people to be the very best they can be. I have a lot of patience, and I love people, so many students have enjoyed working with me in the past. Just to say a little more about me, I love creative writing, drawing, comics, piano, nature, superheroes, Jesus, and video games.

Feel free to contact me at any time and we'll work something out. I'm pretty chill and happy, so there's no need to be shy or nervous about having me as a tutor. I'm happy to serve any way I can!

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

I was leader of Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship for 2 years at Rutgers University, so I led Bible studies regularly, and often study the Bible in my spare time. I also did a campus ministry internship in Tokyo, Japan through Chi Alpha, where I led and participated in Bible studies a bit differently since many of the students didn't speak English well. In order to be accepted into the program in Japan, I had to fill out an application and was able to get a reference letter from my campus pastor.

English

As an English major at Rutgers University, I studied American and English literature for 4 years, analyzing the mechanics of the language in order to gain a deep understanding of the texts and a greater appreciation of literature as an art form. Because of my command of the language, it was easy for me to articulate my arguments in every paper, so I was able to achieve a 3.9 GPA in the major. I applied my studies to my tutoring lessons at the Plangere Writing Center at Rutgers University, teaching my students to write more efficiently, with greater clarity and power, and to think critically about the texts they were reading.

ESL/ESOL

I studied English at Rutgers University so I have an advanced level of understanding of the English language. I also worked as a Writing Tutor at Rutgers where I was trained in tutoring skills and gained experience teaching advanced English to college students. I received my TESOL Certification in Tokyo, Japan by completing an intensive course that included supervised practicum and the study of communicative language teaching methods. Finally, I have gained further experience by working for Woori Tutors for 8 months, teaching ESL to adult Korean students in North Jersey.

SAT Reading

My highest SAT Reading score was a 680. Since then, I studied English literature as my major at Rutgers University and thus acquired better critical reading and analytical skills. I also took classes in high school with the Princeton Review, so I can also teach about strategies specifically for scoring high on this exam. I believe my command of the language and my experience tutoring essay writing to college students will enable me to generate the most effective lessons for scoring high on the SAT Reading section.

SAT Writing

My highest SAT Writing score was an 800. When I was in high school, I partook in a program with the Princeton Review to score high on the SATs, so I also teach about strategies specifically for scoring high on this exam. Since then, I studied English literature as my major at Rutgers University and graduated with a 3.9 GPA. I also tutored college students in writing essays for their English classes and learned different tutoring strategies from the writing center there.
