My name is Fernanda and I am a Bergen Community College graduate who is now pursuing a Bachelor of Arts at Columbia University. I am currently employed at the Cerullo Learning Assistance Center in Bergen Community College, which is an award-winning tutoring center.

I have over four years of experience in tutoring all levels of writing, literature, contemporary math, and film analysis/criticism, and I am also certified and trained as a Supplemental Instruction (SI) Leader. I recently received the Stephen Gold Memorial Tutoring Award as a result of demonstrating commitment and compassion towards students, especially those enrolled in English Basic Skills classes.

My philosophy is to always put students’ needs first and to make sure I have answered all their questions by the end of appointments or study sessions. In addition, since I realize how hard it may be for some students to ask for help, my top priority is to treat them with respect and compassion. No matter how challenging a student may be or how many hours I have worked any given day, I maintain a positive attitude and I consistently give my best effort. As a result, several students specifically request appointments with me, are eager every time I meet with them, and maintain positive relationships with me. Moreover, whenever I am working with a student, I always remember to give them positive feedback and increase their confidence by complimenting them when things are done right. This makes them have an optimistic outlook, which benefits them beyond their academics.

In addition to working with people enrolled in EBS courses, I have also tutored a wide variety of students, including those with special needs and those enrolled in the English as a Second Language program. Not only have I held one-on-one appointments, but I have also offered Supplemental Instruction sessions, where I have the freedom to design my own lesson plan. My areas of expertise include literature analysis, research, argumentative and persuasive essays, as well as personal statements for college admissions. Not only is it important to proofread and correct grammar when writing, but I believe that an outstanding essay should consist of a strong thesis statement, quality arguments, and make use of transitions.

I am a very approachable, empathetic, patient and committed person who continuously works toward improving her tutoring skills. For that reason, I am open to suggestions and I can adapt to any learning style, especially if it enhances the learning experience. A motto I have taken from working at the tutoring center is to make students become independent learners.
