About Olivia

When I was fourteen years old, I made pamphlets advertising my interest in tutoring children in Spanish, and distributed the ads around my neighborhood; I have been teaching ever since. My Argentine father spoke with me in Spanish, so I grew up bilingual. After spending summers in France, I became fluent in French as well. My zeal for languages comes through in my teaching and my work history-- throughout my time at Dartmouth College, I taught Spanish to my own class of undergraduate students, working with them on pronunciation, grammar, and establishing a relaxed environment where learning was fun.

For the past two years, I have worked as a tutor in Manhattan, primarily focusing on standardized test preparation (SAT & ACT), and helping students with the college application process. I know how stressful test prep and college applications can be, and I have a talent for making the process feel much more manageable-- and even enjoyable! I love many unpopular subjects: grammar, chemistry, and biology, for example. My enthusiasm for the subjects that I teach is contagious, and my favorite part of teaching is helping students realize that, once they get a handle on the tricky aspects of a topic, they can have fun with that topic. As a tutor, I love helping my students see their own potential and understand what they can do to help themselves the most.

I graduated with honors in the neuroscience major from Dartmouth College, and I have taught all types of science classes: biology, chemistry, neuroscience, and psychology. While you might think that you dislike equilibrium constants, just wait until I make some vivid analogies for you. My success as a science teacher is based in my passion for narrative; I try to explain science like it's a story and relate it to topics that genuinely interest my students.

As someone who grew up speaking Spanish at home, I love teaching Spanish. In my ten years of experience teaching Spanish, I have helped more then 80 students master the language.

Please send me a message if you would like to hear more about my teaching background, or if you are interested in setting up a lesson with me!
