The Tutoring Solution’s March 2015 Student of the Month – Kylie Parrini

The Tutoring Solution’s March 2015 Student of the Month – Kylie Parrini

For the month of March 2015, we selected Kylie Parrini as our Student of the Month. Kylie receives her tutoring in Chino. She is an 11th grade student at Ayala High School. She has been with us since October 2014; she has been working with our tutor Yessenia to help her improve her understanding of Honors Algebra II. Kylie has seen great progress while working with Yessenia, which makes our job extremely rewarding.

When we were first approached by Kylie’s parents, they informed us that they wanted us to find a tutor for Kylie that could help her improve her understanding of Honors Algebra II. Like many other students, Kylie was struggling with her math class and receiving a low grade due to her lack of understanding. Kylie’s dad, Jim Parrini, said, “When (Kylie’s) tutoring first started she was barely passing with a C-.” Luckily, we found a tutor whose teaching style worked out great with Kylie’s learning style – they both seemed to hit it off right from the start.

Kylie’s tutor, Yessenia, credits Kylie’s improvement to her strong work ethic, she said, “Every time we meet, she is always ready to learn and answer her points of confusion, whether it’s from math problems from her homework or her class notes.” Kylie clearly did not lack in motivation; she simply needed a bit of guidance and to learn the necessary tools to better understand her math class. With a bit of time and patience, Kylie soon began to see the fruits of her labor. Yessenia says that Kylie has improved so much that she is now able to catch her own mistakes and correct them before Yessenia even has the time to point them out.

Yessenia has really enjoyed her time with Kylie. Not only is she proud of the academic goals Kylie has accomplished while working with Yessenia, she also values the bond, as tutor and tutee, that they have developed. Yessenia revealed that they have so much fun while learning that there are even times when they forget that the hour is up. Clearly they have found a perfect balance between learning and fun and the results (i.e. Kylie’s grades) clearly demonstrate that.

When asked about their experience with our tutoring company, Jim said, “The Tutoring Solution worked with us to find the best fit for Kylie’s learning style and the improvements have been extraordinary.” We are so grateful to be able to work with such a wonderful couple like Ruth and Jim who have worked with us every step of the way to make sure Kylie continues to succeed. Their support for their daughter has contributed vastly to her academic growth. Part of the recognition, when we nominate students of the month, is also for the parents of those students.

We are proud to announce that Kylie now has a high B in her Honors Algebra II class. Additionally, in her two most recent math tests she earned an 89% and a 92%. Although fantastic, Kylie and Yessenia are not settling for a B, they are now working towards making sure Kylie earns a B+ or an A- by the end of the school year. We are sure that is completely feasible if they continue working as they have. Congratulations Kylie! We are very proud to call you our March 2015 Student of the Month. Keep up the great work!

 


 

If you feel that your child has improved in school, due to the tutoring they have received from us, and you would like them to be featured as our Student of the Month, please send us an email letting us know how your child has improved.  We hope you can help us show how proud we are of each one of our students.

We provide tutoring in Chino, Corona, Norco, Eastvale, Chino Hills, Mira Loma, Alta Loma, Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga, and all the surrounding cities.  We have students from Sky Country Elementary, Oxford Preparatory Academy, Heritage Oak Private Education, Townsend Junior High School, Roosevelt High School, Alta Loma High School, Norco High School, Centennial High School, Chino Hills High School, Ontario Christian High School and Ayala High School.

  • What is your experience as a tutor or teacher?

I have tutored college and high school students in Math and Chemistry since 2007 but not on a regular basis, there were times I was busy with work or school and could not teach. I have also taught science classes at a middle school, grades 6, 7 and 8 in class rooms having up to 30 students. I was able to help them get comfortable with the material and ready for the rest of the year because most of them were not correctly taught during the preceding academic year. I recently helped a college freshman student prepare for his final in general chemistry.

  • What subjects are you best at?

I can teach pre-algebra, algebra 1 and 2 and chemistry.

  • What is your schedule like? What days and times are you available to tutor?

I will be mostly available during Friday afternoons, weekends, Monday and Wednesday 6:30-8 pm and Tuesday and Thursday 6-7:30 pm.

  • Where did you attend school?  What degrees do you have and are currently working towards?

I have a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from the American University of Beirut. I also have a Master’s degree in Business Administration from California Polytechnic State University, Pomona. Currently, I am working on a master’s degree in Chemistry at California Polytechnic State University, Pomona.

  • What cities can you tutor in (i.e. how far are you willing to drive to tutor)?

I am willing to travel up to 10 miles away from Montclair.

  • Are you open to tutoring students via Skype or another online platform?

I am willing to tutor students using Skype, email, or other online platforms.

  • What are your future career goals?

I plan to apply to a PhD program in Chemistry, after finishing the Master’s degree, and pursuing a career in teaching and research.

  • What are your hobbies? What do you like to do for fun?

In my free time, I like to play basketball, soccer, swim, read and hang-out with friends.

  • What accomplishments have you achieved while working as a tutor/teacher?

I was able to rebuild the basics of a grade 7 class in chemistry in less than three months and get them ready to catch up with the curriculum of 7th grade because students were not appropriately taught in 6th grade. I have also helped a college student go from a D to a B in Accounting and Economics (I have an MBA). Recently, I helped a college student review for his final in only three sessions where we covered most of the material and solved problems on them.

  • What do you enjoy the most about tutoring/teaching?

I enjoy helping others reach their academic and career goals. I like directing, advising, and teaching and I want to pursue a career in teaching after graduation.

The Tutoring Solution’s Tutor: Oscar Ruiz.

  • What is your experience as a tutor or teacher?

I started tutoring in 2012 at Cal Poly Pomona during my undergraduate studies. I was hired as a Professor’s Assistant where I would take on some of their responsibilities such as lecturing and leading in class discussion. The Assistant position took place in the Physics department so I had a chance to reinforce the mathematical concepts as well as the science of the course material. In the beginning of 2013 I began to work for a company that provides K-12, Mathematics and English, in-home tutoring to students who qualify for SES (Supplemental Educational Services). I am presently working as an SES tutor and tutor several other students in Mathematics.

  • What subjects are you best at?

I am best at Mathematics and Science. This includes college and grade-school level Physics, Chemistry, Algebra, Trigonometry and Calculus.

  • What is your schedule like? What days and times are you available to tutor?

I am available all days of the week, including weekends, except Wednesdays and Fridays. However, I can make exceptions depending on the city.

  • Where did you attend school? What degrees do you have?

I studied at Cal Poly Pomona and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics in 2014.

  • What cities can you tutor in (i.e. how far are you willing to drive to tutor)?

I am willing to tutor in Eastvale, Norco, Corona, Ontario, Chino Hills, Rancho Cucamonga, Riverside, Pomona, Diamond Bar and Claremont.

  • Are you open to tutoring students via Skype or another online platform?

I am available to tutor students via Skype and any other online platform.

  • What are your future career goals?

I am currently applying to Graduate School to earn a Master of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering. I want to work in the field of avionics designing and building control systems for aircraft and spacecraft.

  • What are your hobbies? What do you like to do for fun?

I like to read and learn constantly. There is so much fascinating information out there. I also like to play the guitar and occasionally play with other musicians. I believe the study of music and its theory has helped me with my understanding of Mathematics and also creates a balance in my life.

  • What accomplishments have you achieved while working as a tutor/teacher?

I am very proud of the fact that I was recently able to increase one of my student’s Mathematics grade from a C to an A in about 3 months of tutoring.

  • What do you enjoy the most about tutoring/teaching?

I enjoy sharing with others, the two subjects I enjoy the most in the Universe. Science and Mathematics are very important to us as a civilization and sharing the subject matter with other individuals can be a very rewarding experience, especially when the student achieves their transformative “Ah Ha!” moment.

For the month of February 2015, we selected Karen Pedraza as our Student of the Month. Karen receives her tutoring in Corona. She is a 3rd grade student at Harada Elementary School. Karen has been working with our tutor Anfal, since the beginning of the school year, to help her improve her reading skills. Thus far, Karen has made tremendous progress – we are extremely excited for her and very proud.

When we first began working with Karen, her mother expressed that she was feeling frustrated for her daughter, due to the fact that Karen was not reading at her grade level. We knew we had to assign a tutor that would not only be knowledgeable and experienced at working with students at that age level with reading, but also someone that would be patient and would make Karen feel comfortable; therefore, we assigned Anfal. Anfal turned out to be a great fit with Karen. After just a few months, Karen improved immensely and has begun to read at her grade level.

Anfal has really enjoyed working with Karen and seeing her progress. When asked how she would describe her experience while working with Karen, Anfal said, “Karen is a very sweet and kind girl, she is also a hard-worker and I see a lot of great potential in her.” Additionally, Anfal added, “I enjoy that she feels comfortable asking questions when she does not understand a word or the material presented. She has had a lot of improvement, and although she struggles with reading big words occasionally, the next time I ask her about them, she can read them quickly and clearly.”

After working together for only a few sessions, Karen soon began to see huge improvements in her reading ability. Karen went from a first grade reading level to a third grade reading level. Her tutor credits Karen’s improvement to her ability to use Anfal’s tips to become a better reader. Anfal said, “she has learned to slow down and sound out the words that she is unfamiliar with. When she reads, she is aware that she must comprehend what she is reading because she knows there will be questions that she must answer afterwards.” Anfal is very proud of Karen and she plans on helping Karen improve even more. Anfal added, “My greatest accomplishment is getting Karen’s reading level to where it should be for her grade level. My hopes are to increase her reading level far above her current reading level with lots of practice and patience.”

We could not be happier with the progress that Karen and Anfal have made while working together. It is truly outstanding how much she has improved in such a short amount of time. Clearly they work great together and we expect nothing but great things in Karen’s future. Leticia Pedraza, Karen’s mother is a great reason for Karen’s improvement, she knew to ask for help when she saw that her daughter was struggling and she has worked to make sure Karen does not miss many, if any, sessions. We are delighted to be able to work with both of them and we are extremely proud of Karen. Congratulations Karen!
