I truly love tutoring. My tutoring career began back in 2005 when I would tutor my fellow classmates in Math, History, Spanish, and SAT prep. I received my Honors B.A. in Spanish in 2012 and my M.A. in Spanish from the University of Colorado-Boulder in 2015. During the past ten years, I have tutored college-level Chemistry, Math, Spanish, test prep, and various other subjects. I have always loved academics and excelled at the SAT achieving a 2260/2400. I have also successfully taken many AP tests (Chemistry, Spanish, Calculus, US/World History) and the GRE test. My love for teaching and learning, and my personal experience of deeply studying and tutoring a wide array of subjects, has made me into a truly exceptional tutor.
Tutoring and teaching are what I love, and my students have always expressed very positive feelings towards me and our sessions. They have described my tutoring style as effective, patient, and fun with individualized plans for their learning style. Rather than telling students the answer or putting them through lengthy theoretical explanations, I always make it my goal to help the students reach their own understanding of the material. This gives them the necessary skills for success throughout their entire academic career. I hope to continue to grow in my understanding of education and the subjects I devote my time to teaching. And, I hope to get to help your students succeed and become all that they surely can.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe in student-centered learning where the tutor is a guide to help when the student needs. I like to let students always take a stab at the problems/material first. This helps students build confidence in their own abilities to grow as learners.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In a first session, I would normally assess the student's background with the topic, talk about their goals, and work some initial problems or material to identify their strengths and possible areas for improvement.
