Hello, I'm Silva! I graduated magna cum laude from Mount Holyoke College, where I focused my studies on Psychology and Education and Environmental Studies. I am also a Massachusetts certified teacher. I teach because I love working hard with students to figure out challenging concepts and then celebrating our success. I also appreciate that working with students expands my own knowledge and perspective. I believe that learning should be fun, inspiring, creative, individualized, and student-driven. As a tutor, I will do my best to understand where you are at, and then support you in moving forward. I am happy to provide traditional instruction and practice, but am just as ready to contemplate broader questions, dig for understanding of the concept behind the procedure, use movement to aid memory, or try what ever method we think will work best for you.

I have experience supporting learners from kindergarten through undergraduate. Through my formal teacher training and classroom work, I have developed a diverse array of strategies for making content accessible to students. I also have six years of experience working with all ages as an environmental and agricultural educator. I believe my varied background helps me to approach tutoring creatively and draw on many ideas to connect content with my students' lives.

As an educator, I believe that everyone can thrive as a learner given the right environment. I will work with you to find a structure and tutoring style that work best for your learning. Please reach out with any questions and to schedule a lesson! I have a very flexible schedule and am happy to work to accommodate you.
