"The subjects I have tutored the most include math and science, though there are a variety of subjects I can tutor. Throughout the years, I have created a teaching style that emphasizes utilization of what each student already knows and helping them create links and critical thoughts based on the foundations they already have. When not at school or work, I like to express my creativity through music and crafts. I also frequent local coffee shops, book stores, and performances/shows.."

" I think my fondness for tutoring came from my dad playing math games with me in the car on the way to school as a child. It forced me to think up the simplest way to solve a problem, which became increasingly more fun for me over time. On the weekends I enjoy hiking, spending time with friends, watching movies, reading, and playing with my adorable dog, Jessie. I love working with children and young adults and look forward to helping them to the best of my ability!."

"This confidence is really helpful if your child underperforms due to test anxiety. I have developed syllabi for Introduction to Philosophy and Critical Thinking courses at San Francisco State University, as well as instructed those courses based on the syllabi I created. Along with lecturing for 3 classroom hours a week per course, I held two office hours a week per course. Office hours consist of one on one instruction with students that feel they need extra help in the course I was teaching."

" While at 826DC and Sursum Corda, I tutored elementary and middle school children in subjects ranging from Spanish to Math (and of course English!). I believe the key to tutoring, and learning for that matter, is a hands-on approach that requires the student to be an active participant. In doing so, the student gains confidence in his or her own learning ability and learns to understand things through his or her own lens. I find the learning process fascinating, and I am very much looking forward to the opportunity to continue tutoring." ...
