ExperienceI have tutored students in general math, chemistry, biology, writing/speaking skills, ESL, and languages. I also help students through their college courses to learn how to study and become high achievers. In addition, I coach students during their applications process for college or graduate school admissions. I have participated in mentoring programs for minority students. I work well with high achievers students and with those that have fallen behind but are motivated to improve.
I want to be a tutor to facilitate other peoples learning experiences. I am a life learner and I know that once we learn to enjoy learning, we are set up for the best.
I am bilingual Spanish/English.
Classes: My preferred subjects are science, writing and languages. I have taken advanced courses in math and stats, modeling, chemistry (general, analytical, physico-chem, soils chem, biochem), biology (general and specialized courses, zoo, botany, ecology, environmental studies, conservation, ecol. economics, Agroecology). I also learned about communication across disciplines and communication with the public, and leadership.
I have published peer review papers as well as articles for the public. I had been awarded a Fulbright, Chancellor's Awards, and other grants .
HobbiesI am easy going, kind, compassionate, and respectful of other people ways of learning. I am a good listener. I ask for feedback to make sure things are going well. I interact quite easily with people of all ages, cultural/social backgrounds, and degrees of education or no education (empirical education). I have lived in many places, and traveled to many countries.
Hobbies: reading, music, animals, outdoors, walking, hiking, biking, cooking, gardening, public speaking, science writing, volunteering with community organizations.
I have mentored several undergraduate and high school students. I teach local and foreign students. I can teach all subjects in English or Spanish. ESL students are most welcome to contact me.
Several of my students contacted me to work in their admission process, and were successfully admitted to top colleges and Universities for undergraduate and graduate studies.
I look forward to hear from you. Tell me how can I help you or your kids.
