About Alvaro

Hello, my name is Alvaro and I am a recent graduate with a B.A. in geography. I was born in Brazil and moved to the United States in 2010 and lived in Houston until I moved to San Antonio for college. I discovered I liked teaching very early because even at a young age I understood that education plays a huge role in making the world a better place. I love learning new things and passing this knowledge to other people. My experience in teaching so far comes from my work in outdoor education, I am a rock climbing guide and a whitewater kayaking instructor.

I am very passionate about everything I do and am always seeking to learn more. I want to become a teacher, starting at the high school level and eventually become a college professor. I've been seeking every opportunity that I have to develop my teaching and public speaking skills. I have done that at my job as a guide at Outdoor Pursuits, as a coach for a Rock Climbing Club and as the president for the Geography Society at UTSA. At WyzAnt, I hope to be of service as a tutor for many students and continue developing my teaching skills.

I was born and raised in Brazil, therefore Portuguese is my native language. I am an avid reader and writer and am able to help with grammar, reading, and conversation. I have experience with teaching new languages, I have been is ESOL myself and later have taught English to other people; I can get by in Spanish and am a beginner in French. That has given me knowledge on the progression of learning a new language.

I have a love for geography which was born from my love for maps; It has been my favorite subject since middle school. I have just earned a BA in geography and served as president for the Geographical Society at UTSA for one year.

I have 11 years of guitar studies and have been through several teachers and conservatories. I have performed solo, in groups and in guitar quartets. I specialize in classical guitar and can teach beginner through intermediate levels.

I love drawing and specialize in graphite and ink drawing. I took 5 years of private art lessons which focused on realistic drawing. I can also teach with pastel, charcoal, and have experience with map making.

I am patient, flexible, and will design my lessons according to the students needs and styles of learning.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Drawing

I have five years of private art lessons which focused on realistic drawing with graphite. I have an extensive portfolio with works with graphite, ink, pastel and charcoal and had my work in public exhibitions. I also have experience with realistic fiction map making.

ESL/ESOL

I have been leaving in the United States for over 6 years now and have just graduated from college. I have strong communication skills including writing, speaking and reading. I was also in ESL and know the process of learning a second language very well! My native language is Portuguese, but I can help you if you speak Spanish and I can also do some French.

Guitar

I have over 10 years of guitar studies and have had several teachers. I have performed solo, with jazz bands, and guitar quartets. I specialize in classical guitar and can tutor beginner and intermediate students in performing skills and music theory.
