I was a struggling student throughout high school. I was an athlete with a strong work ethic but just needed more out of the box explanations. I used tutoring myself to help increase my grades and understanding that I found invaluable. Tutoring helped fuel my desire to continue my education and I graduated Cum Laude from La Sierra University. After college, I had the utmost desire to give back to students in the same way other tutors had done for me.
I have been tutoring now for the last two years. I am passionate about helping students to understand and overcome challenges they think they could have never achieved. I have unwavering patience and out of the box ways of thinking of ways to explain material. I pride myself on being able to explain what the teacher cannot. I also find it best to explain the material by applying the concepts to everyday life or specific interests of the students.

How do you adapt your tutoring to the student's needs?
I adapt my tutoring to each student on an individual basis. I find the student's weaknesses with the materials they are struggling with and create a plan that will best strengthen the student's individual learning style.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
If a student cannot find the intrinsic motivation to do well, then I like to provide incentives to the student for completing assignments and/or improving their grades.
