My name is Irma Guerrero, and I hope to be your child's future tutor through Varsity Tutors. As an Education specialist, I understand the importance of learning and practice outside of the classroom. Congratulations in taking this step to support your child's success.
It will be my honor to work with your child and implement rigorous lessons that will help him/ her excel in their academics skills. As a special education teacher, it is my expertise to find creative ways to engage students in learning by approaching it in a Universal Design model that fits your child. It also helps that I have a background in Behavior Interventions that will guarantee your child's participation.
I hope to be at your service soon.

Q & A
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I would build rapport and find the student's strengths and weaknesses. I would also perform a diagnostic test to get a base of where to start.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
I use a token system where the student earns rewards based on success and participation.
