"I love tutoring English because helping students to organize and write essays allows me to share with them my love of literature. While English is my favorite subject to tutor, I also have extensive experience studying Spanish.

"Also, I have tutored students to prepare for specialized and placement exams. I moved to California in January 2012. I wanted to establish my tutoring career here as well. I love one-on-one tutoring because it helps to focus on one's individual weakness and make it a strength.."

" However, I am currently working with a 5th grade student who needs to catch up with two years of math and I find myself really enjoying helping this young lady fast forward to proficiency at her grade level. I approach tutoring with much creativity. I am dedicated to finding out precisely where my pupil's skills are at and to build from there, step by step with much patience. I love to spark joy in learning and I am committed to help establish a long term structure of habits and methods for your child.

"I believe one cannot teach without passion. Aside from growing up in a Spanish-speaking family, I have been studying the language for ten years and recently arrived back from a trip to Spain with the help of my university, for the sole purpose of improving my language. I have proudly been an undergraduate writing tutor for three and a half years, and because of my ability to relate to and help students, I was elected last semester to teach a writing studio to groups of ESL, international, and incoming freshmen students. I have worked with tutees of all age ranges, from several backgrounds, and with various skills and weaknesses." ...

" I enjoy teaching the Spanish language as it pertains to grammar and syntax, however, my focus not only encompasses Spanish grammar. I can also help you to communicate and improve your listening comprehension in the language as well! In addition, I am well-versed in Spanish literature and can help you to understand the meaning of short stories or novels and write papers on them by assisting you with your critical thinking and analytical skills. I understand the difficulties that come with learning a foreign language from a personal and professional point of view. If you feel like you can't get through your Spanish class without some extra ...

"I am not satisfied with simply having my A students (gracefully) slave through each school day or having a client begrudgingly raise his or her C- to a B+ after poking his or her anemic brain repeatedly with a stick. For me, the biggest reward as a mentor is seeing the look of awe in their faces after kindling the fire that fuels their curiosity and inspires them to learn about the world that surrounds them (while still managing to boost them up to the top of their class by cultivating discipline and superb study and test-taking skills!). I take pride in knowing that most of the clients I have worked with can now see learning the way I see it; and I look ...

" I worked with AmeriCorps at a high school's tutoring center and after school program. As a teacher, I taught pre-algebra to one hundred and thirty 7th graders in East Oakland. Then, after school, I would tutor some more math! Underlining all of my experiences is my passion for teaching and learning. I love to understand my world better--through learning a different language, delving into the human mind, or looking at amazing, mathematical patterns."

"For four years I have mentored middle school and high school students at a local learning center in subjects like math and chemistry. I often come across students who believe that they are not good at certain subjects, not "meant to be" for it, or they simply hate it because they find it difficult. I like to make students believe that understanding and mastering a subject is possible through dedication, patience and hard work. This is a belief that they will ultimately prove to themselves as they improve their performance on the subject. Another thing I emphasize when teaching math or chemistry is the importance of ...
