I'm Glorya! I graduated with a B.S in Environmental Engineering from the University of California San Diego. In college, I worked as an academic adviser and orientation leader, but my work with students began in high school as a math tutor for close family friends and my cousins. My positive experience with students in academia inspired me to tutor professionally, and after more than two years of working as a tutor on various platforms, I still find it incredibly rewarding. Moreover, through my years of experience, I have learned to effectively communicate with students and adapt my tutoring methods to better suit their learning styles and personalities.
With regularly scheduled sessions, I have successfully helped students improve their grades from Fs and Ds to Cs, Bs and As. I have also worked with adult learners, specifically with working professionals interested in learning Spanish. I look forward to working with students from different backgrounds to help them achieve academic success.
I am a very patient and dedicated tutor, and I give students the extra time and support that they need in order to succeed. I am always on the lookout for online learning resources to complement my tutoring sessions and to share with students, thus ensuring that they have resources to refer to outside of tutoring. In addition to helping them succeed in their immediate classes, my goal is to help them find the learning styles and study skills that work for them so that they can build confidence in their abilities as students.
