"I tutored my fellow students in Mandarin Chinese, French, and chemistry. After I graduated, I went to China and taught English both at a school and privately for three years. Right now I'm teaching English as a Second Language at a language school here in San Diego. I like private tutoring a lot more than teaching large classes because it's much more personalized and I can help the student learn exactly what they need."

"Upon finishing my degree I joined an organization called Teach For America which helps place teachers in our nation's lowest performing areas. Over the last two years I taught high school math and science in the Mississippi Delta. More specifically, I taught 12th grade Psychology/Sociology/English, 11th grade Chemistry, 9th grade Physical Science/Algebra 1, and AP Physics. Whether working with large groups or individuals, accelerated learners or students requiring extra support, being a part of the teaching and learning process is amazing! Outside of academics I really enjoy the wilderness, sports, and music." ...

"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.

I pride myself in trying to take pressure of the student, which I believe helps them learn the material."

"I have had two years of training in tutoring and presenting material effectively. It is a common mistake of tutors to simply lecture rather than explain and interact. That is something you need not fear from me. I am a big fan of individual one-on-one tutoring, since a student's individual needs can often be overlooked in a classroom setting. It is my goal to make up for any deficits that a student might experience from lack of teacher attention and to advance his or her knowledge beyond that of his or her peers."

In addition, I am trained in ISEE/SSAT test prep, Seeing Stars and the LiPS program.."
