I am currently a dual-degree law and public health student studying at the University of Wisconsin. In 2010, I graduated cum laude from the University of Miami as a double major in Political Science and Sociology. I can provide tutoring to elementary, high school and college students in a number of subjects due to my extensive academic history. Subjects in which I am best qualified for tutoring are elementary and high school math, social studies, US government and politics, english and studying skills. For a more detailed description of these subjects please refer to my profile. Through my academic years I have accumulated experience as both the tutor and student, the upshot of which makes me an effective and well-qualified tutor.
I believe the most effective tutor-student relationship is one that consists of open communication and a well-balanced exchange of questions and answers. My goal is for the student to leave each tutoring session with self-confidence and improved study skills in the subject matters covered. My approach to tutoring is to first understand the educational needs of the student, then to communicate the lesson plan, and to use effective questioning techniques throughout the session in order to assess the student's progress.
My availability is fairly flexible throughout the week, and I am available throughout the weekend. The only two days I am unavailable are Monday and Wednesday; however, I could arrange for tutoring sessions during the evening. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

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.
