"Top 10% of over 17,500 Wyzant tutors in 2019.

I have a Master’s degree in economics from the University of Arizona and have tutored in the Washoe County School District (WCSD) for over 10 years logging over 1,000 hours with students from 7 to 18 years old. I work with students in a class setting and after school on an individual basis and in groups of three or more. The tutoring sessions offer assistance in homework coupled with reinforcing concepts that were introduced in class.

For those who enjoy a more physical learning environment I use a kinesthetic approach with games that offer a sense of touch. With each step, my goal is to give them the tools and desire to produce results on their own!

I am qualified to tutor math through Algebra 1, English, French and Spanish. Through attending school in Switzerland, I am fluent in French. I have worked with any number of ELL students, mostly Spanish-speaking, but other languages as well. I have found often role-playing and games help student enjoy learning another language. I relate the learning to everyday situations to provide cues that allow for easier recall.

In English, I focus on essay writing, the rules of grammar and learning to enjoy" less...
