I work with students all ages. I am available for homework, homeschooling, and enrichment activities. Before meeting with my students, I gather the necessary information in order to create a lesson plan that will meet the student's specific needs. I have extensive experience in curriculum design. My approach to teaching is student-centered. I use a variety of methods to ensure that students are active participants in the learning process and get the most out of instruction.

Depending on the student's need, you can expect a more customized work agenda in order to assist the student to reach the goal. We work together during the tutoring time and the student can expect to get some "homework" to maintain the lesson fresh. (Unless the student is getting help with an already existing class, then we follow the guideline of the class as our path to success)

About Cindy
Cindy is a native Spanish speaker and fluent English speaker. Additionally, she studied French for over 8 years. She is a driven Latina who loves her background and is excited to help others learn and embrace new cultures.

She began tutoring 17 years ago (Spanish, French, Math and Science) while in High School and continued to do so intermittently throughout college while she was earning her degrees (B.S. in Mechanical Engineering with minor in Theater Arts form the New Jersey Institute of Technology and a M.S. in Industrial Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh) and after as a working professional.
Aside from tutoring Spanish, she has experience tutoring the following subjects:
Algebra - Geometry - Pre Calculus - Physics - Dynamics - Mechanics

She recently moved from Pittsburgh PA to Los Angeles in order to continue to
grow her acting career.
She splits her time between her family and working as an actress, working on her own productions (radio show and film) and independent films.

She loves working out, movies, cultural events and embracing diversity.

She also enjoys working with kids because it allows her to show them that there is so much more to an Engineer.

She is a former president of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers - Western Pennsylvania Chapter. Through this organization they were able to create opportunities for kids K-12 and college to experiment and learn about the different opportunities in the STEM field during Engineering-Week at the Carnegie Science Center.

Cindy's extensive knowledge of Spanish was clear from the start. English is her second language but my children couldn't tell. She has an excellent way of breaking down Spanish for children and adults (I listened in and learned a couple of phrases).

I am a native Spanish speaker. Additionally, I have studied Spanish at Berry College. Spanish lessons with me are unique because I have been exposed to dialects from all countries. Unlike, second language Spanish speakers I understand the different mannerisms and dialects (which they do not teach in school). Unlike speakers from more populous countries, I have not been retained to my own dialect, therefore giving me an applicable knowledge of Spanish.

About Eugenia
Hello! I'm Sosa! I was born in the capital city of Uruguay and my family came to the United States when I was 6. I am a student at Berry College, where I am enrolled in the School of Performance! I have been teaching Spanish and Percussion lessons since high school to everyone from middle school to college students!

"Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, It will live its whole life believing that it is stupid" - Albert Einstein

Being a Spanish native speaker, who taught both English to Spanish speaking and Spanish to English speaking people, I have reached the conclusion that repetition is key. Mostly conversetional, but also written, pounding in the same words, the same constructions is how you interiorize them, adding then new material.

In general, in private tutoring, one has to adapt to the student characteristics. I have always believed that creating a confortable space in which the student is able to try, make mistakes and try again brings the best results. Listening, emotional contact and confidence are key.

Every student is different!

About Roberto
I am currently a graduate student doing research at UC Berkeley. Even though my grad studies (Aerospace Engineering) are located in the Netherlands, I decided to explore and feel new experiences coming here, as I did doing my internship in the UK or volunteering in South East Asia (were I did some class-style teaching to local Indonesian kids and teenagers for more than 3 weeks!).

All those experiences have brought me a great multicultural understanding, which, although may look no related, helps a lot when getting to know your new student.

Sports nature and music enter the top three of my hobbies. Simple living as a lifestyle.

I have been (still am) a student for many years, and therefore I understand very well how frustation, not.comprehending or learning new material feels. They say the best way of experiencing and knowing about s
omething is doing it.
