As an aspiring teacher, I have spent my whole life helping individuals through academic means. Besides having experience working with students, I also have a passion for teaching.
As a tutor, I have helped students prepare for the STAR tests that are administered at the end of the school year. Besides that, I have helped elementary schoolers build up their basic skills, such as language arts and reading. Additionally, I have worked with middle schoolers at Castillero Middle School where I gained valuable classroom experience.
I am completing a two year credential at San Jose State. Hence, besides experience, I am also learning different techniques on how to teach individuals in my classes. At San Jose State, I received my Bachelor's in History. As a result, I am very knowledgeable in the fields of World, U.S, and most especially, California History. My experience with elementary schoolers will also allow me to help children with their basic skills. Additionally, since I speak Spanish fluently, I can also help individuals improve their basic Spanish skills.
Why would I be a good choice for a tutor? Well, people feel comfortable with me because of my kind personality. Also, I get to know my students in order to know how they learn best. I am patient with my pupils and have the determination to make them succeed. I try different techniques until my pupils know the subject matter.
My hobbies include playing tennis and playing the violin. I am a family-oriented person. My goal in life is to become a college professor.
