I am a former student at CSU Channel Islands as a psychology major, Bachelors. I have always been a student who took the extra mile to get to where I needed to be; I graduated high school at the age of 16 with a "Most Outstanding Senior" award.
I have experience in tutoring with subjects across the board, with students who are in elementary, middle, high school, even peers at college. I have mainly been a help to those with Math struggles, Sign language, English grammar and essay editing, and psychology as well as helping those with learning and/or physical disabilities.
I am a patient and kind tutor, I promise to do everything in my ability to help you succeed and strive to your maximum potential. My tutoring strategy can vary on the student, but I like to use concepts in which my student is interested in to explain subjects to keep them intrigued and motivated. I am willing to work with anyone who is willing to work for it!

Q & A

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

I like to get to know the student enough to understand how they learn to help them strive for their best potential. I would like to ask how they prefer to learn so I can incorporate that in my tutoring sessions with him/her to make it as enjoyable as possible.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I could help a student become an independent learner by helping boost confidence. I believe when a student believes in themselves and knows that they can overcome confusion in certain subjects, they can go on to realize that they can do what they thought they couldn't.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

It is hard to stay motivated when you are not interested in the subject at hand. How do we avoid this? Get to know the student! Apply hobbies and interests to their sessions to keep them motivated and on track!

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

Everyone struggles with certain aspects of a concept. I would take what I've learned from their learning styles and try to apply that to a new way of teaching them the skill or concept to see if that helps them better understand. Never give up!

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

Reading comprehension is difficult for many, as it was for me growing up. I learned many tricks and tips to help me not only read but retain and understand what I have read. Of course we would put those into practice if the student is struggling.

What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?

I have found that when you first start to work with a student, you have to keep an open mind. Every student learns differently. I have to observe how the student learns, stays motivated, and does their work to be able to help them to the best of my ability.
