About Tamara

I am a Chemical Engineer, currently working towards my PhD degree at Villanova University.

I got my Chemical Engineering degree in Spain, where I am from, but after my year as an exchange student in Philadelphia, I couldn't help feeling that I wasn't done learning, and decided to come back to the states for Graduate School.

I started tutoring back home during my sophomore year, and in only a few months, I convinced a student who hated chemistry, to start a degree in chemistry himself. Since that first student, I've been helping many others who struggle with math and sciences, not only to pass their classes but to find the beauty and the interest in the sciences that they all seem to hate at the beginning. I've tutored different levels of calculus, algebra, statistics, physics and chemistry, from high school to a college level. As I became a PhD Student and started being a Teacher Assistant, I saw it clear: my passion in life is to teach. I love helping students, transmit them my knowledge. But I specially like making kids enjoy while they learn sciences and trying to convince them that science is cool. However, I cannot fulfill this only with my Teacher Assistant job, since the classes are big and the relationship with the students is not so close. That's why I am looking forward to start tutoring again, and have that one to one time with the student, when I transmit to them the passion I feel for science.

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.

Chemical Engineering

I got my Chemical Engineering degree in September 2013, and immediately started as a PhD Student in the field. Previous to my PhD, I tutored the introductory chemical engineering classes to students from younger years. During my PhD Studies I have been a teaching assistant for different Engineering departments, planning lessons, grading and having office hours and tutoring times.
I am currently building a tutoring program for the undergraduate students at Villanova, where I will help them improve their grades and help them to understand the concepts in some of their classes.

Mechanical Engineering

During my PhD Studies I have been a teaching assistant for different Engineering departments, planning lessons, grading and having office hours and tutoring times.
I worked for the Mechanical Engineering Department the first year of my PhD, covering different classes during the Fall, Spring and Summer semesters.

Very good tutor

Tamara is very patient, kind and warm, not to mention knowledgeable. Her style is a good match for my over-achieving daughter, who is hard on herself when she doesn't understand something. I'm so glad we found Tamara!
