About Magdalena

Hi, I'm Magdalena. I'm a senior at Fordham University.

I have mentored middle schoolers for three years. I taught civics in a New York City high school classroom, and I also tutored and mentored high school students this past summer.

I have tutored my sister in advanced middle school math, social science and a little Spanish for two years.

I am most knowledgeable and passionate about social science, history, language arts and Spanish; however, I have solid foundation in science (biology and chemistry) and math (from arithmetic although advanced algebra and geometry).

I have a flexible schedule. I can often be available for short notice school emergencies in person, by phone or online. As a tutor, my focus is on both the immediate school concerns (ie. homework and exams) as well as on developing students' strong study habits.

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.

Algebra 1

I have been tutoring my sister since high school and more intensely in college. This has kept my math (especially Algebra and Geometry) skills very sharp.
Additionally, I have been preparing for the GRE (the standardized test for graduate programs). This has also helped me maintain my math knowledge.

American History

I love history!
I took AP History in high school, Latin American History in college and I am constantly reading up on new histories books like: A People's History of the United States of America, Ebony and Ivy, and The Harvest of Empire etc. I especially love the history of people of color in the Americas.

Art History

I am an Art History Minor at Fordham.
I have taken: Introduction to Western Art, Aztec Art, Modernity in Asian Art & Gender and Modern Art.

I earned a perfect score on the AP Art History Exam.

English

I took four years of advanced English language literature at a competitive high school, and I consistently received As. I took AP English and earned a perfect score on the exam.

I have taken several literature courses at the college level at Fordham University and received an A (the highest grade) for each of them. The literature courses I took include: Contemporary African Literatures, American Literature Survey, Feminist Histories and Texts & Women & Independence in African Literatures.

Sociology

I am a sociology major at Fordham University.
I earned a summer research grant and I will begin writing my thesis this Fall.
I took Introduction to Sociology, Basic Research Methods, Social Science Statistics, Sociological Theory, Mass Incarceration and Mothering and Motherhood.

Spanish

I am a native Spanish speaker. My family is from Cuba, Panama and Ecuador.

I also studied in advanced Spanish courses for native speakers all four years of high school. I took two AP Spanish classes (Language & Literature); all taught exclusively in Spanish.

I was a member of the Spanish Language Debate Team in High School. We won best in our category all three years I participated.

Writing

I am a believer in many, many multiple rough drafts and an aggressive editor for each of them. I have a lot of experience writing for academic settings including college opinion papers, research grants and research papers.
