About Carla

I love tutoring and helping students reach their highest potential. I have been working as a tutor many years. My areas of knowledge are Spanish, math (all levels), English, Chemistry (only the first two college levels), and Biology. I honestly love learning, this is why my interests are so diverse. I am currently working as a teacher at Sylvan Learning Center, I mostly prepare students for SAT/ACT tests. I also tutored two students recently to take the ASVAB. My goal is not only to teach content, but to build up confidence and passion for learning.

I am a computer engineer. My math courseware was pretty extensive.

I was born and raised in Argentina. My native language is therefore Spanish, but my Spanish is very advance as well.

I work with my neighbor sometimes, who is an Army recruiter, and volunteer to prepare high school students to score high in the ASVAB. I just do this for fun.

Whoever feels the need to learn something all over again, the right way, and feel passionate about it, just talk to me. Don't let anyone make you feel you cannot do something. We all can do and be anything.

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.

Algebra 1

I have taken way too many courses on math, especially algebra. In college, engineering students must master algebra. This was a rushed test, so please do not think this reflects on my knowledge.

ASVAB

I volunteer to help high school students pass the ASVAB when deciding to join the armed forces straight from high school. I also tutor privately college students who have decided to join the military, as well.

Elementary Math

I am teaching kids to work with word problems right now. I tutor kids and adults of all ages.

Geometry

I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering. I have taken extensive courses in math. Geometry was extremely necessary to develop programming algorithms.

Grammar

I attended an English institute for a year where I learned the English grammar and proper syntax thoroughly. Additionally, I took English Literature in college just for fun, which helped me polish essay writing, editing, and structuring.

Spanish

I have experience tutoring. I am a native Spanish speaker. I have a great creativity to design learning activities.

Vocabulary

My vocabulary knowledge comes from reading a lot and also having studied at an English institute for a year. There, I learned English grammar in depth, and prefixes and suffixes of many complex words to help me understand definitions. I also took one year of Latin, which helped me understand the etymological roots of a myriad of words.
