About Javier

I am a native Spanish speaker with a PhD in Political Science and a solid multi-disciplinary background in History and Social Science. I have taught at multiple institutions (high-school, International Baccalaureate, universities), and in very diverse environments, both in the United States and in South America. My most important tutoring experience has been with undergraduate students at the University of Pittsburgh.
As a general rule, I always adjust my approach and strategy to the goals set by students and parents. I do as much as possible to make the most of students' strengths focusing my support on overcoming their weaknesses. I believe the best tutoring should be efficient in the attainment of immediate results and short-term goals, but also contribute to reach more long-term educational goals. In other words, not just get my students to pass the next exam, but help them to improve their study skills, so that in the future they will be able to make it without tutoring.
