Since I can remember, I've had a hard time digesting school materials, even, if it was something that really interests me. It wasn't until high school that my parents arranged for me a tutor. My tutor, Alejandra, helped me get through my freshman year. She truly changed my way of thinking. Not only did she help me with my school grades; she also helped with my confidence levels and emotional state of being. So now, I'm wanting to be an 'Alejandra' for others too.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is "KISS" (Keep It Simple Silly). Whenever I am struggling with a subject, I break it down into small, bite-size chunks to make it easier to absorb.

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

In a typical 1st session, I pay attention to the tiny details my student says and does to get a better feel for their needs. I also pinpoint their learning style so I can personalize each session to the best of my ability.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Helping a student stay motivated is the best part of my job. I am consistent with smiles, words of encouragement, high fives, clapping, and even on special occasions, small tangible rewards for an accomplished goal.
