My name is Brenda Garcia. I am currently a senior at CSU, Fresno pursuing a degree in economics, along with a minor in math. My current major and overall GPA is 4.0. As well, I am part of the Craig School of Business Honors Program, where I am currently conducting my own independent research about the labor market conditions in Fresno County. Due to my passion in economics, I currently hold the Vice-President position at the Economics Student Association. I will be pursuing a graduate degree in Economics. I acquire extensive tutoring experience. My previous work experience consists of positions as an elementary school tutor and as a private tutor. I have worked with students from seven years old to twenty years old. I have tutored in a wide range of subjects, but I usually specialize in mathematics. I enjoy to help students throughout the learning process. During elementary school, I struggled with the subject of mathematics. Fortunately, in middle school I had an inspiring math teacher that showed me the fun in math with a patient and positive approach. As a tutor, I believe that all of my students have great potential. When working with my students, I take on an encouraging and patient teaching style, where I explain and guide students to understand new concepts. Instead of just giving away homework answers, I help my students find the answers on their own by asking questions, giving feedback, and explaining concepts. This will allow them to develop strong study skills that will be useful throughout their educational career. Fun Facts: One interesting fact about me is that I enjoy to make some of my own clothing during my free time. As well, I love to paint and draw. Another interesting fact about me is that I can speak three languages: English, Spanish, and French.
