I am currently a college student at Widener University majoring in Spanish Secondary Education. I plan to become a Spanish /ESL teacher and hopefully have a certification in Mathematics as well. I am also very active and I love to dance, cook, and travel.
I currently tutor for Widener Reads/Counts at the Widener Partnership Charter School as a Math, Reading and Spanish tutor/ teacher's assistant. I also tutor at the local Boys and Girls club as well as for the College Access Center of Delaware County as a volunteer. I am extremely passionate about teaching and education which also contributed to my induction in Kappa Delti Pi International Honors Society for Education.
I have had much experience in tutoring and have also been able to teach in some circumstances. My tutoring experiences began at home and in high school when I tutored my siblings,older family members, and fellow peers. I cannot describe the feeling I get when a student is finally able to achieve a concept, or make great progress in a subject area that proved difficult. I have been able to teach multiple Spanish classes because the Spanish teacher at the school in which I tutored resigned. I was able to engage the students and at times I had to create lessons on the spot. The experience is definitely one that will benefit me later for my teaching career after graduation. I am very excited to work with other students and hope to be very helpful in their studies.
I am very excited to work with new students! Please do not hesitate to ask me questions and schedule a lesson with me. My goal is to be as of much assistance as I can, and to guide you into success in whatever difficulty.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In a typical first session with a student, I try to get to know the student and how they answer questions in the subject they are struggling with. Then I choose one area to work on and give strategies and propose ideas for the next session.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I can help a student to become an independent learner by allowing them to only use me as a guide or a resource instead of a cheat sheet. I allow students to work through problems on their own even if they make mistakes, then review the problem and see what they could have done better, or identify what mistakes they made while also emphasizing what they did well.
