I am currently a student at Boston College, and I am loving the experience! I tutored extensively throughout high school, and so far I have continued this trend in college. Over my four years in high school, I tutored about 10 different students in areas such as English, Spanish (I am a native speaker), math, history, test prep, and even music performance. Now in college, I have 5 students, and I tutor them in math, reading, writing, grammar, proofreading, and in the development of useful skills such as time management, organization, staying focused and on task, and more.
I find tutoring to be an extremely rewarding experience, both for the student and the tutor. Although it seems like the student is the only one learning, the tutor learns a great deal, as well. For instance, with each student I take on, I gain valuable experience that I can then use with another student. In addition, I love being able to assist a student in reaching their goals, be that a higher grade in a class, a deeper understanding of a specific topic, etc.
I am a native speaker of Spanish- it was actually my first language! My entire family comes from (and still lives) in Galicia, the northwest province of Spain. Although I am fortunate enough to be bilingual, I still love tutoring others in the hopes that they will come to love the language just as much as I do.
I took all the AP and Honors courses I could in high school, and although I placed out of my freshman English classes in college, I decided to take an extra English literature course out of my passion for the subject. I have worked towards having and using excellent grammar since a young age, and I find editing and proofreading to be a calming, enjoyable task.
I began studying the violin when I was 6 years old, and it was only a few short years later that I decided to pursue it seriously. Since then, I have formed part of countless county and state-wide orchestras, as well as several symphonies on the national and international level. I have been lucky enough to perform in halls such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, United Palace, and more locations throughout the U.S. as well as Europe. I tutored music all throughout high school, and I am excited to continue doing so in college!
If you happen to be interested in any of the areas I tutor in, please don't hesitate to contact me! I look forward to working with you!
