Microbiologist with 15 years of experience tutoring Spanish and other subjects in Pasadena

Methodology

I like getting to know my students and what works best for them. People have different ways to retain and understand information. My approach is based on my students needs. I like using examples and then making my students create their own examples to understand the subject in a deep level.

Background

I been giving lessons for 15 years
I have taught hundreds of students
My students get better grades and better understanding of the subject
I was born in Caracas Venezuela so Spanish is my native language. I am also a Microbiologist
