Carlota

 

Hi! I’m a cheerful character from a town near Barcelona, Spain, and came to the United States to study physics and environmental sciences. Besides math, sciences, and test prep, I speak four languages, so hit me up for some help on your Spanish, French, or Catalan if you are so inclined! I have been tutoring and college mentoring over four years now, both back home and in the United States. I have also created my own experimental science and math curriculum for middle and high schools, where I taught as a substitute teacher during my year off. In my classes I try to make sure to keep my students motivated and focused, and boost the confidence that is necessary to make the student excel. When I’m not on my (standing) desk, I’ll be running, hiking, biking, playing with the dog, or cooking some delicious veggie meals.
