Alfonso

I am a graduate of Denison University. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with a minor in Sociology/Anthropology. Upon graduation, I joined an educational non-profit called City Year, an Americorps program where Corps members willing give up a year to serve in effort to bridge the education achievement gap. In this role, I serve as a mentor and tutor to students while working alongside a partner teacher to give students the resources and tools they need to succeed. City Year works in English and Math classrooms and I have the pleasure of serving in an two adaptive math classrooms. While I'm open to tutor English and History and/or Social Studies, I am most passionate about Math. In my experience, helping struggling students think logically and developing procedural fluency, conceptual understanding, and productive disposition, we always seem to have the most fun connecting these skills to other aspect in life. In addition to this, its a pleasure seeing their confidence level boost when they answer a set number of problems correctly. Nothing warms my heart more when a student jokingly tells me, "Mister, back off, I got this." I am a firm proponent of education, believing it to be absolutely necessary for an improved quality of life, and I try to impart this appreciation to all of my students. In my spare time, I enjoy reading that which enriches my life, binge watching my favorite tv sitcoms, hanging out with friends, and contributing to a cause greater than self.
