About Valencia

I love helping others meet and exceed their education goals. As a college graduate and one that is planning to further my education, I am one that received many hours of tutoring in elementary school and middle school, and that ultimately allowed me to exceed my goals. It was the tireless effort of ones that cared to help me find efficient ways of learning subject matter that worked best for me. I know that hard work pays off, but it also involves having someone that has personalized attention to understands how students learn best.

I tutor history (European and world history) and Spanish. I also have spent many hours helping students prepare applications for college and help with establishing study skills.

My first goal is to meet with the student(s) the first class and understand what works, and what doesn't. I enjoy keeping each student engaged in each class and encourage parents to be equally involved and engaged (if applicable).

I generally available as per my profile unless otherwise stated. My base rate is $40 but will provide discounts - contact me for additional details. I look forward to helping you (or your child) reach their goals.

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.

Handwriting

I am extremely qualified in this area as I have spent many volunteer hours to improve students handwriting and cursive. Many times it is repetition and understanding specific habits of each student. Once this is identified there is an opportunity to correct habits and utilize this as a teaching point.

Political Science

I was educated and spent 4 years studying international relations within my international studies degree at VT. I received high marks at school and was required to work with political science classmates as our classes were 70% the same courses. Tutorial methods is to identify the objective of the class, methods of understanding material and grasping material to ensure proper understanding.

Soccer

I have provided personal one-on-one lessons to elementary, middle school, and high school soccer players based on proven techniques in Europe. I have experience provided tactical coaching for interested soccer players that are interested in transitioning to defense which was my primary position for over 20 years. I am able to work on proper conditioning with interested students to make sure they minimize injuries.

Study Skills

I have a BA in international relations and I have experience helping students exceed their goals by planning their study schedule accordingly. I've had success with study skills because I focus on the student and figure out what works best for them and what allows them to retain the information in order to be successful. Previously, my observations were that students were not effectively utilizing their time to pinpoint important topics within a subject, items that the teacher/professor wanted them to study, and focusing on what methods are efficient for a given subject.
