Private tutor in Berkeley, CA
Tufts University - Current Undergrad, English and Spanish
I'm currently studying at Tufts University for my degrees in Spanish and English, with a pre-law focus. I have several years of tutoring experience, and I've worked with everyone from elementary school students through high school students. I'm also part of literacy team on campus, assisting special needs children and reading. As a tutor, my specialties are writing, English, and preparation for the ACT, but I'm also capable of helping students in a number of other areas. I enjoy working with young people to help them realize their academic potential, and I enjoy showing students what they're capable of. I use a student centered approach in tutoring because everybody learns differently, and it is up to me to teach to the student in the way that they learn best. I also like to connect with students and build rapport so that I can be a role model and provide support and encouragement. In addition, I believe that tutoring is as much about learning as it is about confidence. When students trust their own ability, they are able to learn more efficiently and completely. The final priority in tutoring is to make sure that learning is enjoyable and fun for the student as well to keep them engaged and motivated. Ultimately, I want students to come out of every session ready to learn more.
