Hello! I am a current 3rd year PhD Student in Clinical Psychology and a teaching fellow at my University. As clinical psychologists we become experts in learning styles. Part of our training is to evaluate, both clinically and through assessment instruments, how people learn, think, and understand. This makes me an expert in how people perceive academic material! That is what technically makes me an exceptional tutor. Really though, I am a great tutor because on top of my skillset, I am warm, kind, patient, and most importantly, I take things all the way from the bottom and believe in building on the fundamentals. It's not just about getting homework done, it's about understanding the core concepts!
Math, Biology, English, Spanish, Writing and organizational skills are my strong suits.
Who am I? A creative mind with serious goals. I make a great role-model and love working with children. My experiences include, psychoeducational evaluations for IEP placement, treating adolescents as a psychologist in-training, and I work in a private school in Manhattan as an admissions evaluator.
I am trilingual, my languages are Spanish and Danish. I love linguistics and have excellent language abilities.
I have been through the higher education process. I have first-hand experience- I know what it takes and how to do it.
Ah! Algebra is a specialty of mine. I believe that the key to learning how to navigate all math is to really understand the fundamentals. My experiences as a child were that math was taught as a series of steps and an order of operations. I had an excellent tutor who taught me how to look at every problem in different ways, who showed me that algebra is about how to represent the unknown and solve for it. It is an abstraction, with a method!
I was a Biology major- and YES! I did well. I took my high school Advanced Placement Biology exams and scored a 5. I switched my major to Psychology because it was the best decision for my future goals of becoming a Clinical Psychologist. How did the biology manifest? I have worked for years in fMRI research. Yep! I am fascinated with both the physical and emotional brain! Biology is still a huge part of my everyday.
I was lucky, I grew up speaking Spanish. But that doesn't make a good Spanish tutor, it just shows that I am a native speaker. I scored a 5 on my high school Advanced Placement exam. I decided that I wanted to make sure that my Spanish skills were as good as my English skills. I have worked as a translator in various capacities, and currently I work bilingually in psychology. I know my grammar very well, but specifically, it was because I had an amazing AP Spanish teacher in high school. He taught me how to take my skillset to the next level.
I currently work with adolescents who are studying for regents. I understand the process and how much stress these children are under! There are great ways to work hard and still manage the stress well. This is a difficult stepping stone, but manageable!
I worked in research for 3.5 years with high-functioning autistic participants. It is also part of my training in clinical psychology to work with children who have symptoms of Aspergers. Patience! Patience! Patience! It feels really good when you can reach a child who really needs your help.
I am used to working with children and their families in a "treatment team" model. This is what it takes to get good results! Let's meet and work together to find out what your child's goals and needs are!

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.
