Everyone learns differently. My goal is to find out how my students learn best so that I can help them success. Knowing the material, even if very well, is not enough to be a good tutor. I will make my best effort to coach my students so that they can figure out the way in which they learn best and I will adapt my teaching style to each student's needs. I will help them set tangible goals that they can work towards so that they can achieve success and I will be there to help them along the way.
I am currently a junior at the University of Central Florida where I am pursuing a degree in economics. I went to high school in Miami, Fl, and before that I lived and studied abroad. In the past I have been a middle school math tutor with Mu Alpha Theta and have been offered tutor positions by the Student Academic Resource Center at UCF. I tutor Economics (both macro and micro), U.S Government and Politics, U.S. History, and Spanish (native speaker. I can help students prepare for the advanced placement tests in all of these subjects. I also help students prepare for college readiness assisting with applications, essays, and SAT critical reading and writing. In my spare time I am a member of the UCF Western Equestrian Team, where I compete in horsemanship competitions, and I am an avid guitar player. I am also very passionate about traveling.
My favorite part of tutoring is seeing my students setting up goals and being able to accomplish them. If I had to pick my favorite subjects to tutor they would be U.S.History and U.S. government. So much in fact, that I read books about these subjects just for pleasure. Nonetheless, I am very proficient in all the other subjects that I tutor as well.
