ExperienceI have been a full-time Private Academic Instructor in Virginia for the last 12 years. I work closely with my students to find out what works best for them in subject areas such as Math, Science, and Foreign Language. I am experienced in working with children, teens, and adults from Kindergarten to College and beyond. I try to instill a firm understanding of the fundamentals each student needs to succeed in their classes now AND in the FUTURE. Over several years, I have obtained an immense working knowledge of students in academic environments and find it easy to interact with people of diverse backgrounds and ages. It is of great importance to identify areas of weakness in the student's knowledge of material and study skills to help the student progress smoothly, now and in the future.
I'm friendly and love working with kids and adults and am also great at helping students sort and organize their material into proper and effective study material.
Every student is different, and finding a method that works best for each individual is extremely important. As a tutor, I can successfully integrate material and utilize a student's preferred learning preferences to help them succeed. Also, I stress the real-world application of concepts for better understanding.
I started tutoring while in high school and graduated with an AP Diploma. During high school, I tutored and was available to help in nearly every science and math class, including classes I was enrolled in at the time.
As a proficient speaker of the Spanish language I also assist with tutoring students who are taking beginning & intermediate level classes currently (Through high school level Spanish 3 as well as the first two semesters of college Spanish)
Thus far, through this site I have tutored over 30 different students through this site and have positive results and numerous returning students.
