" My favorite subjects to tutor include English as a Second Language, Writing, Spanish, Social Studies, Art, Computer Coding and Design, and Math. It is my personal belief that a tutor must adapt to the learning style of their student. I tailor each session to suit the individual’s personality, interests, and academic needs.

Through my own experience, not every person interprets and understands things in the same way. So I believe in being versatile in my teaching methods and approach with my students, as they are each their own person."
