Rapport with the student is crucial in tutoring. I love to know students interests, sense of humor, and about his/her day. Knowing the learning style is important to find the best way to teach him/her. Flexibility, to change the lesson or repeat the concept several times for the student to learn it. Expect that the student will do his/her best work. Positive reinforcement to increase students self confidence. I believe all students can learn and achieve beyond what they think. I received my Masters in Education from Lesley University in May 2012. I also have an undergraduate degree in Architecture and Urban Design from La Universidad Nacional de Colombia (South America). I taught and tutored one-on-one Spanish all levels and ages since 1990. In 2003 I started tutoring Spanish Speakers with limited English. Later on, due to this experience and my daughter's ADHD, I decided to pursue a degree in Special Education. I enjoy tutoring any aspect of language either in English or Spanish. When teaching to a non native speaker, it is rewarding when the student makes connections between the language and the culture. It opens new worlds! When teaching reading to native speakers who have a disability it is very rewarding seeing they progressing, understanding, and being able to express themselves better. I enjoy teaching math and learning how the student understands the problem or exercise and arrive to the answer in an unexpected way.
