7+years experience teaching/tutoring in both public and private schools. I have experience with students aged prek-college level. Former student athlete tutor at the tutoring center on campus. As far as study skills go, column note taking saved my life, it's a skill I learned in high school honors courses and still use today. When it comes to essay writing my primary focus is helping high school juniors and seniors strategize, plan, and revise their admissions essays. I have family in admissions and financial aid offices so I get the scoop on what they're looking for. I hold a BS in Child and Family Development and Major in Early Childhood Education.
I'm a Portuguese speaking native and I've tutored my peers in Portuguese and Spanish my entire life! For my younger students (PreK-Elementary school) I will help you unfreeze this pandemic wide brain freeze and will help you master the skills presented by your schools. We will use materials from your school so you're most familiar with necessary subject materials, if need be I'll help you play catch up so you can succeed this school year. I will present my methods which I used in the classroom to help my students succeed and I will modify until we find a method best suited for your learning style. I'm a current Elementary school virtual learning coach, so I'm up to date on this covid wide virtual learning frenzy and I will help you master the materials in this new way of learning!
