About Cecilia

Hello my name is Cecilia. I am a rising freshman at James Madison University. I was also accepted into the University of Virginia, but I preferred the ambiance of JMU. I have taken 9 AP courses and all honors classes during my high school career. I have also juggled quite a few extracurricular activities on top of my coursework. I would be willing to provide my resume and former test scores through email.

I specialize in English and History. I am also very good at algebra and statistics. I have taken all types of standardized tests, and I am willing to tutor your student for any standardized test. I am more than willing to help identify your students optimal learning style and to provide them with my treasure trove of study tips that helped me earn my 4.3 GPA and become 6th in a class of 431. I realize that I have an aptitude for learning, but I attribute a majority of my success to my study techniques.

I have been tutoring unofficially for five years now. It has included helping my friends find their optimal study and organization techniques. I have spent the past year assisting my peers in AP European with mastering the content material and learning how to master the AP Exam. My love of learning has transcended into helping others discover their love of learning. I am extremely patient and I won't stop until you are satisfied that your student has mastered the content.

Since I am going to be attending college I will not be available to tutor in person for the Virginia Beach area. Though I am quite familiar with the expectations of Virginia Beach City Public Schools. So I will be offering online tutoring sessions for the VA Beach area. However I will be able to tutor your child in person if you live in the Harrisonburg area. I also full heartedly believe that if you show a child what opportunities are out there (how awesome college is), that it will inspire them to be better students. I am fairly flexible and I will do all that I can to accommodate varying schedules. I will do anything I can to help your student thrive and succeed because I love helping people learn.

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.

Public Speaking

I have been a public speaker for 13 years. I am a two time state champion in Extemporaneous Speaking, Public Forum. I have won the 2014 Virginia Optimist Oratorical Contest. I also spend my spare time preforming speeches/presentations and reading on how to improve public speaking.

SOL

I am familiar with a limited number of SOL tests in Virginia. However I took comparable tests in Georgia. I spent this past semester tutoring students in World History 1, World History 2, US History, Earth Science, Virginia and US Government, and Civics and Economics. I have also taken the AP Courses in these subjects so I feel confident that I can help your child with these SOL tests.

Study Skills

Prior to entering high school I had no idea how to study. However after reading multiple books and consulting my mentors, I tried each study technique until I found the ones that helped me. I used these methods to help me obtain a 4.3 GPA. I will help you student determine their best method of study to help them maintain a high GPA and master the content.
