Educator with 10 years of experience tutoring elite students in LA & NY

Methodology

Whether I am preparing a student for a standardized test or a class assignment, the goal is to encourage the student to analyze subjects in a deeper, more critical manner. Rather than focusing on the answer or the end goal, I focus on the process, so that the student can more easily replicate it independently. By applying the Socratic method, I work to foster an environment between me and the student that encourages their independence and confidence.

Background

For the past ten years, I have been tutoring on the high school and collegiate level. I began tutoring while I was at Lehigh University through a program called TRAC, where we were assigned to a class in the Business or Engineering school. In this position, I worked as a liaison between the students and the teachers and met with the students to assist their written work. The goal was to impart the significance of written and verbal communication across all professions. Later, after graduation, I have worked with several elite tutoring services in both New York and Los Angeles. I worked with students individually and in large groups to review courses and study for standardized tests.

Alekandra's resume

Tutor, Franklin Tutoring Services; Los Angeles, CA — 2017-2018
I assisted students with their school work, as well as helped them prepare for AP and SAT tests. The position required a knowledgeable in current curriculum, classical and contemporary literature, vocabulary, reading comprehension, critical thinking and testing preparation. I supported the students’ growth in with reading comprehension, vocabulary expansion, and building confidence in approaching any English curriculum by catering to the student’s particular skill levels, strengthening their essay skills and creative writing skills.


Tutor, Study Shack; New York, NY — 2015-2017
I prepared Middle school and High school students for the SSAT, PSAT, and SAT. In most instances, I created lesson plans for individual students and worked with the student one-on-one; however, I also created a lesson plan and taught an after school testing prep class in collaboration with the Study Shack and a private school in Manhattan.


Tutor, The TRAC Fellows Writing Program; Bethlehem, PA — 2012-2015
I worked as a liaison between the students and the teachers and met with the students to assist their written work. The TRAC Writing Fellows are talented student writers from all three undergraduate colleges who are selected through a highly competitive application process to work as peer tutors in courses across the disciplines. Trained in a rigorous 4-credit seminar course, the fellows assist students with all phases of the writing process, consult with faculty on assignment design, and help with library and database research and the use of educational technologies. The goal was to impart the significance of written and verbal communication across all professions.
