Hi! I just graduated from Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY with a B.A. in Drama and a minor in Sustainability. Don't let my major fool you! I graduated with a 3.9 GPA, general and departmental honors, and Phi Beta Kappa. I'm a freshly started SAT/ACT tutor and have previous experience teaching music, reading, writing and math to students ages 7-19. I'm also a native Spanish speaker--my mother's from Chile and I lived there until I was almost five, and I studied Spanish in college as well to understand the grammatical structure of the language as well. I can help you with conversational Spanish, grammar, and making your accent sound more authentic!

I'm mostly a visual learner myself but can explain concepts very well with either auditory or kinesthetic means. I pride myself on my ability to go back to the last concept a student was "with me" on and taking it slowly and explaining thoroughly the process of how I arrived at the next point.

I love teaching and working with students, but what I love most about tutoring is the one-on-one time I get with a student. Nothing excites me more than when they finally make that crucial connection and suddenly everything just clicks into place. I so love seeing that in a student, especially when I can say I'm the one who caused it!
