Overview

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. Just so you know, I tutor all day everyday and can start as soon as you would like!
Best Wishes,
Valeria

We are so excited to find Valeria! My daughter was very confused by AP Physics, and after just one session she feels much better about material.
