About Divya

I love teaching, tutoring and working with children. I love it when the light bulb goes on, and I will be as patient and encouraging as I can to make that happen. In college, I have worked as a reading/math tutor and Spanish tutor for the past three years. Spanish, Psychology, and Writing are definitely my favorite subjects to teach and tutor. I majored in Psychology and Spanish while at Penn. As someone who had to work to be good at math in school, I have, ironically, also been told that I am good at teaching geometry, algebra and pre-algebra because I am often able to anticipate students' struggles for they were once my own.

My tutoring philosophy is that every child is different, and I will work to figure out what teaching style works for the individual student. While some students learn vocabulary words in lists, others do better listening to music, learning the lyrics, and learning words that way. When it comes to developing good study skills, some students function better filling out surveys about their own learning while others just need to keep practicing different methods in note taking until they hit upon the right one. I will make one promise: I will keep trying to help you (your child.)

I was a strong student in high school and continued to be a strong student in college. But, I also know what it is like to struggle sometimes when course material gets challenging. I am here to help you through those times. For students looking for a Spanish tutor, my oral proficiency is at the Advanced-mid range on the ACTFL (Association of Teachers of a Foreign Language) scale. I also have a sponge-like memory, absorb a lot of what I learn and love to learn!

I look forward to working with you and hope to learn about you and your background as we work together. Above all, I am your cheerleader as you succeed in climbing academic walls and hills!

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.

English

I am a native English speaker and studied English in the American pubic school system. I am also a published writer and poet. I minored in Creative Writing while in college. I love to read and hope to share that love of books and words with my students.
