Damara

I am a graduate of The University of Southern California where I received my Bachelor of Arts in
Print Journalism. I have worked with students from a variety of backgrounds and skill levels. I've tutored elementary school age children in their homes, helping them sharpen and retain the fundamental skills they have learned in class. I've tutored high school students struggling with math and English. Most notably, I've spent years working in class and on campus with community college students struggling with the college writing process. I can tutor a variety of subjects, but I am most drawn to English Composition and Literature. They are my passions, and, as a result, they are my favorite subjects to tutor. Being able to understand written word and being able to express yourself through written word are skills so essential to life that I really consider it a privilege to be able to help someone improve in those areas. My approach to tutoring is to help students see that concepts that might seem confusing or even at daunting at first, can really be broken down into smaller, easy-to-understand elements. And it's not a matter of being "smart" or not; it's a matter of being willing to dedicate the time and effort to truly understand something. Outside of work, one of my main interests is travelling. I've been to many different states and many different countries like Spain, Scotland, Nigeria and Belize, to name a few. I hope to continue adding more stamps to my passport. I also love seeing live music at local L.A. venues (my genre preferences vary from alternative or indie rock to hip-hop and neo-soul). I'm also a huge fan of detective novels of almost any sort, British television dramas and any movie based on a comic book.
