About Cecilia

My love of teaching stems from my belief that education is "the great equalizer." I understand that not all people are born into the same standard of living and everyone comes from a different background. However, education is the one thing that can unite us all. By receiving an education and choosing to inform ourselves in different areas we are allowing ourselves to grow as people.

Thanks to my love of education I was able to graduate as the salutatorian of my graduating high school class and I am currently attending college without any out-of-pocket cost or loans. After graduating I hope to become a teacher in order to enlighten the minds of our future generations.

Some of my previous tutoring experience includes the tutorial of students under the supervision of a certified teacher (from 2014 to 2016) and after school informal tutorials as needed by my peers since 2012.

My favorite part about tutoring is being able to get through to a student and recognizing the moment when they have come to understand a new topic they have previously struggled with. When a student is able to do problems with minimal to no aid it means the tutor has done their job and that has to be one of the best feelings in the world.

From 2014 to 2016 I was a fourth-grade math tutor at my local elementary school. I tutored the students in mathematics for an hour and a half each week.

I scored a 690 out of 800 on the reading portion of the SAT and maintained an A in each English class I took throughout high school, two of which were honors classes and 2 of which were advanced placement classes. I also passed both the language and composition AP exam and the literature and composition AP exam.

I am an elementary education major in college and have been tutoring elementary children since 2014. I have also previously participated in the Junior Achievement program which teaches children about money management and other real-world scenarios.

Because of my schedule, I am generally available for tutoring only during weekends. I am available Fridays after 3 p.m. and Saturdays after 1 p.m. and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. I strongly prefer tutoring online but may be able to make other arrangements in extreme circumstances. My rate is $35 an hour. I am very excited to help students improve so be sure to contact me if you have any questions.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am an elementary education major in college and have been tutoring elementary children since 2014. I taught mathematics a majority of the time both in English and Spanish. My tutorials usually consisted of one on one time or a small group of 3 kids at most. However, I have also previously participated in the Junior Achievement program which teaches classes of about 20 to 30 kids about money management and other real-world scenarios.
