Top 10% of over 17,500 Wyzant tutors in 2019.
I have a Master’s degree in economics from the University of Arizona and have tutored in the Washoe County School District (WCSD) for over 10 years logging over 1,000 hours with students from 7 to 18 years old. I work with students in a class setting and after school on an individual basis and in groups of three or more. The tutoring sessions offer assistance in homework coupled with reinforcing concepts that were introduced in class.

My tutoring approach is tailored to each student’s learning style with the goal of building confidence and the love of learning into the student’s academic life. For those students who prefer a visual learning style, I break down the assignment or concept into visual steps using diagrams and images. For the student who prefers an aural learning style, I offer concepts using music and sound. For those who enjoy a more physical learning environment I use a kinesthetic approach with games that offer a sense of touch. With each step, my goal is to give them the tools and desire to produce results on their own!

As a parent of two WCSD graduates, I acknowledge different learning styles and realize that are many ways to approach an assignment or a new concept and as a tutor, I need to find the method that works for your student.

Over the last 10 years, I have seen any number of the students I have tutored grow from a (sometimes) struggling student, to a proud high school graduate walking across the stage to receive their honors diploma!

I am qualified to tutor math through Algebra 1, English, French and Spanish. Through attending school in Switzerland, I am fluent in French. I have worked with any number of ELL students, mostly Spanish-speaking, but other languages as well. I have found often role-playing and games help student enjoy learning another language. I relate the learning to everyday situations to provide cues that allow for easier recall.

In English, I focus on essay writing, the rules of grammar and learning to enjoy

I grew up speaking French and have tutored for many years. I have been fortunate to tutor elementary through adult students. Elementary school students are often in the early stages being exposed to language. My adult students are studying to take the exam to become high-school French teachers. In all tutoring sessions, I enjoy making learning fun and practical by introducing concepts using visual, tactile and aural techniques!

I love the Spanish language. I studied Spanish in college and have traveled frequently to Spanish-speaking countries.

I have been tutoring for over ten years. I enjoy working with students who are struggling with putting words on paper.
