Overview

Availability:
I tutor seven days a week, so whenever you're ready to get started, feel free to contact me through TakeLessons.

Dear Students and Parents,
I’m sure you can recall what it feels like to be disconnected in class, whether it was during Calculus, French, or Art History. This feeling is not life threatening, but education is of the utmost importance in this technical era. For this reason, I've developed over time an effective approach to teach students how to tackle their academic challenges. I create fun and entertaining lessons, while subtly explaining the subject matter in a way that enhances understanding and learning capability. I strive to enlighten students, not merely to regurgitate information. Lessons would consist of concepts of homework assignments, upcoming quizzes, and final examinations. In addition, I tend to spontaneously ask questions and assign problems to verify comprehension level and critical-thinking ability. If you’d like to learn more about my lessons, feel free to message me through this website and I will respond to your inquiry as soon as time permits.
Best Wishes,
Valeria

· GRE · Online Valeria made me feel as if basic math was the whole world's problem and not just mine, alone. She was attentive to my concerns, she navigated the lesson well with incredible time management and efficiency. She made the GRE seem less intimidating while making me feel a bit more confident at the end of every session.
I wish Valeria was around to help with all my life's lessons. . .
