Tutoring Style and/or Experience

Everone learns differently and I work hard to keep students engaged and, with my acting background, make learning fun. Seeing grades not only improve (44 % increase on average), but having students develop the skills to learn how to learn is essential to success. I tutor most major subjects, including Spanish, as well as test prep. Currently, I am working towards a Master's in Education with a concentration in English. Resume follows below:
