I will love to become your personal tutor. I have been in the tutoring world since 2003 during my first year of college. I have worked as a language, and art teacher as well as an independent tutor for and with friends between the ages of 12 and 50 years old. Yes, according to me, my students are not my clients, but my friends based on the type of work relationship that I have always developed with them. I also work as a substitute teacher for the Arlington ISD school district and have two beautiful children that help me keep my teaching abilities always sharp and fun. I have not only became better at it, but as any other professional, I created a great method that will not only benefit you as my student, but will keep you interested in the subject.
One thing is to need help in a subject, but another thing is to have true interest in learning that subject. These several years of experience taught me one very important thing: you can never succeed in anything if your heart is not attached to it.
One of my roles as your tutor is to help you connect with the subject, reveal to you the hidden things about what makes the subject important and how you can relate to it as a person.
A tutor is like a close friend that you can trust and share your problems with at all times. In addition, a tutor is the only one person that can understand your problems better than yourself. As your tutor, I will always make sure that you feel comfortable with the subject and my tutoring methods.
Learning does not have to be serious and boring. My personal style is to make it as fun as possible with tools such as audios, videos, power points and many more. One thing about our subconscious is that it retains quicker when is less stressful and friendly material.

What is your teaching philosophy?
Learning does not have to be serious and boring. My personal style is to make it as fun as possible with tools such as audios, videos, PowerPoints, and many more. One thing about our subconscious is that it retains quicker when there is less stressful and friendly material.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Create a friendly study atmosphere in order to connect better with the student. In addition, I will make sure the student sees the importance of having a tutor and help develop an interest in the subject that was not there initially.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I will provide the student with tools that I personally used to help me succeed in classes or subjects that I always had a hard time with. There is always a solution to every problem. The difference is that some people have the key to solve the problem, and others do not. My role as a tutor is to help provide that hidden key.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
I will always keep the class or sessions fun and very interesting. I love including happy materials such as videos, audios, images, designs, visual materials like PowerPoint, and many more. My several years of experience taught me that the human brain learns better when all these aspects are used as a study tool.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
I will first take time to understand and locate where the hardship might be coming from and help the student overcome it. Everybody has creativity, so I will help use that internal creativity to connect with the problem and change the student's vision about the subject matter.
How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?
Reading comprehension is all about picturing what is being read. My way of dealing with this problem is helping the student picture the text, and help them connect with it.
What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?
To make the student not only sees but knows and believes that there is nothing too hard to achieve in life. I always make sure the student starts believing that it is actually not as hard as it seems. Then, I start creating a total different and fun learning atmosphere that had always kept every student interested.
