About Myra

Hello! My name is Myra. I have experience working with tutors as I was part of the AVID program in Wenatchee High School in which I would also lead certain tutorial groups for my peers. After I graduated from high school in 2013, I decided to become an AVID tutor. During the 2013-2014 school year, I tutored 7th, 8th, and 9th graders in the Wenatchee School District. I also tutored for Sunday school in the Holy Apostles Church over the course of the year helping students with their lessons and prayers before receiving their first communion.

What I really enjoy about tutoring is being able to help students understand their difficulties and overcoming any challenges they seem to be facing. Asking for help is hard as I have also had to deal with this issue personally, but with the tutoring experience I carry and the knowledge that I have as a college student, I know I can help others too. Learning new subjects in school is so crucial in our society today, so many do not have the advantages we have and being able to get students to love what they do or inspire them to try again is what makes tutoring such a passion for me. I hope to receive a teaching degree for History as I enjoy working and helping others in any way that I can.

The last level of math I finished was during my freshman year of college and it was Calculus 1. While I do retain most of the subject, I am not too fully comfortable tutoring other students as the class presented its own unique stresses for me. However, helping children at a young age with math up to Algebra is something I have a lot of experience with since tutoring for the AVID program. It's knowledge that is still in my head as I personally tutor my 15 year old sister in high school as well.

My first language is Spanish but I grew up learning English as well. I am bilingual and speak and write both languages perfectly well. My parents speak only Spanish, so I know how to work with students struggling with their English. I am a great writer who pays a lot of attention to grammar as well. Being able to translate helps me communicate efficiently with my students.

As previously mentioned, Spanish is my first language but I am just as fluent in English. My family originates from El Salvador. I have practiced my Spanish since a young age and continue to do so in order to speak in the most clear and precise way. Spanish is very important to me and tutoring students in this subject really means something to me in a very personal level. Spanish is not just another language to me it is also a culture.

Please, contact me and I will work around my academic schedule to help you. I work very hard and feel that education is a necessity in our modern society. My job is to make sure students are receiving all the help they need without feeling embarrassed about asking for help. We will work together and find the best studying methods for you to succeed in school and achieve anymore goals you have yet to unveil for yourselves.
