Dear Prospective Tutees,

I feel like I can be a quality tutor for you because I have the ability to connect with people and show authentic interest in them as a person while supporting them with their academic needs. I worked as an elementary school teacher for nearly 10 years in various capacities: as a Spanish dual immersion teacher, K-5 science lead teacher, and structured English immersion teacher for English language learners. Recently I completed an A.S in Health Sciences with Highest Honors and led study groups to review for anatomy, physiology, microbiology, nutrition and general chemistry. While pursuing admission to a physician assistant graduate program I currently work as a k-5 math and language arts tutor with a brick and mortar company and privately tutor while completing a clinical externship in medical assisting. The student I work with is a visiting teacher from Mexico and former colleague who approached me to help her overcome language barriers and pass the CSET exam for teachers. I have also assisted her in planning, co-writing, proofreading and editing writing assignments for online classes. I'm available to tutor year round. Generally, I can tutor weekends between 10 am - 4 pm and weekdays in the late afternoon or early evening. I have a particular interest in working with students enrolled in Spanish classes or dual language programs and working with English language learners endeavoring to master the language. In my spare time I enjoy going to museums, festivals and outdoor recreation areas with my wife and 5 year old son.

Q & A

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I find the “I do, we do, you do” model effective and the goal would always be to get the student to do independent practices, but using as much modeling and guided practice as necessary to help the student achieve that goal.
