EducationB.A. Cum Laude, History, Columbia University, 2014
Woodstock School, India, 2010
ExperienceOriginally from Mexico, I received my BA in History at Columbia University, and graduated from one of Asia's best private schools, Woodstock School, in India.
I am also the founder of Berkeley Tutor, a tutoring company in the LA Area. You can find us online at www.berkeleytutor.org
I am a dynamic and engaging tutor who works well with children as well as teenagers and adults of all ages. I have worked with students of all levels and ages over the past six years, from elementary school through the Master's and post-graduate level.
I specialize in high school and college admissions, SAT and ACT prep, as well as reading, writing, Spanish, English, social sciences, history, and economics of all levels, elementary through college. I have worked extensively with high-school age students on SAT and ACT prep, as well as every stage of the college process.
I practice a dynamic teaching method based around organizational thinking with proven results. Over the past six years, I have helped students get into top colleges in the New York City area, as well as other prestigious colleges such as Stanford, University of Michigan, and Oberlin College.
I have counseled students extensively on the college application process. I come form a background of workshop facilitation, so I run my lessons in a way that is engaging with the student and draws on their own skills and knowledge.
Along with college admissions and test-prep, I also focus on students with Specialized/ Individualized Education Plans, as well as students with diagnosed disabilities such as ADHD/ADD.
I also have experience as an ESL/ELL tutor with high school students. I am also fluent in Spanish, and have tutored both students learning Spanish as well as non-native English speakers learning English. I am also a semi-professional photographer, trained at Columbia's School of the Arts, in both digital and film photography.
In English, writing, and reading I employ a philosophy of organization, where I've developed formulaic frameworks for essay writing, reading, and test preparation. I try to get my students in all of the subject areas to look at the larger picture, so that they can overcome small details more easily.
I have very flexible hours and cancellation policies and am based in Downtown Los Angeles, although I can meet locally at locations that are more convenient to my students.
