I recently relocated to Houston with my husband and newborn daughter. Being a Cuban-American from Miami, I love the diversity of Houston and getting to try all the different ethnic foods, but my palate is still adjusting to spicy Mexican food! This past year I graduated with my Masters in History from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh where I was a Graduate Assistant. I attended undergraduate school at Franciscan University of Steubenville, where I graduated with the top GPA in my class. I discovered my particular interest in history as an undergraduate student, however I have a real passion for all of the humanities, such as literature, philosophy, theology, and political science.
I have tutored a variety of ages and subjects, ranging from third grade math to college level languages. I have worked with students with learning disabilities as well as with high-achieving college students just wanting to get straight A’s. I am a native speaker of Spanish, but I’ve also enjoyed studying and tutoring French and Latin. I also have a lot of experience in editing college papers and helping students put together significant research projects.
Tutoring has been a way for me to share my love for learning with others. One of the best rewards of tutoring is watching students grow more confident as they achieve their academic goals. I truly believe every student has the ability to learn and it’s my personal goal to help them discover this. I really enjoy getting to know each student personally, as we are a team in this endeavor. More than just helping students get good grades, I also try to instill effective study habits and skills that will help them succeed in any subject.
