My name is Nenexi and I graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara with a B.A. Sociology and Minor in Portuguese. I have been working with students from different backgrounds and educational levels for many years now being an Assistant Teacher and tutoring individual students through a program at my university. On my leisure time I enjoy reading, riding my bike, listening to music and watching sunsets. I also grew up dancing ballet and modern so I try to keep that around as a hobby.
As for my students, I have a very proactive teaching style and I believe students learn best through the use of examples and active engagement.
I am passionate and always eager to help students achieve their individual goals not only by helping them understand a given subject but by doing so in a way that will suit their personal way of learning.
My goal is to help students gain confidence and a sense of accomplishment through the art of learning.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Something that I like to practice with my students to see if they understood the material is the teach-back method. If a student is able to successfully teach what they have learned to someone else, it means they really understood the material.
