Tutor Personal Information

Name: Alya Z.
Gender: Female   Age: 26-30
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I spent three years tutoring college students at my college's writing center and volunteering at an after-school program teaching reading comprehension to first-graders. I specialize in student-centered tutoring: tailoring tutoring sessions to a student's specific needs and learning style, and equipping them with the right tools for drawing conclusions on their own, guiding their own learning process and developing confidence in their own abilities. Also, students learn best when they are happy, relaxed and able to relate to the material at hand, so I always incorporate some fun into my tutoring sessions!
