"However, the bond I had with my original client remains strong to this day. After tutoring him for three years, whenever I return to Northern California, I visit the family to see how they are doing.

" My experiences range from tutoring kids in their homes and at school, to teaching in an orphanage in Cambodia. Through all of my experiences, I have learned the three keys to success are to understand how the students learns (kinesthetic, visual, auditory), make the information relevant to their lives allowing for personal connection to the material, and support the student through answering follow-up questions. I am the type of tutor that has patience, understanding, and a good sense of humor to the point that I want the student to enjoy learning the material more than it just being bearable. I promise that I will always try my hardest, ...

" I have several years of experience working with students of all ages, ranging in ability from those in danger of falling behind to those attempting to get ahead. My goal with any student is not only to ensure that they understand enough material to pass their exams, but to help them become masters of the fundamentals behind their subject. This guarantees they will have the necessary skills to bring into new classes and subsequent grades long after they have completed a single subject. If you are a good student looking to gain an edge, I can help you see past individual problems in order to understand the core essence of your subject." ...

"While my experience is with college-level subjects, I enjoy helping students understand the basics as well. There is nothing like seeing that look of understanding on a student's face! It makes it all worthwhile. In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my friends, whether that be playing old school video games at home, or going out Salsa and Swing dancing.
