I graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio in 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice/Forensic Science. I have been tutoring since 2006. My tutoring experience includes students from grade levels kindergarten through freshman college. The subjects I have tutored include reading comprehension, basic math and algebra, chemistry, and physics. I also have been hired as a study coach which involves teaching study skills, time management, and organization. My favorite subjects to tutor are the hard sciences-- chemistry and physics. My professor in college made chemistry extremely interesting, so I found the subject easy to learn. However, I am passionate about every student I take on, regardless of the subject. I consider it is my personal responsibility to make sure the students achieve their main goals. If necessary, I take the initiative to contact my student's teacher(s) in order to have a better understanding of their situation. Basically, my teaching style is to tailor my lesson plans according to the student's learning style (audio, visual, kinetic). For example, for children with special needs, I believe the best way to reach them is by staying flexible and allowing the student some leeway when he/she is experiencing a problem related to their disability. Some of my personal hobbies include reading, volunteering, riding horses, being outdoors, and spending time with family.
