I am a UCLA graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychobiolgy, meaning I have a very strong biological science background, especially as it relates to the brain. Before attending UCLA I attended San Diego Mesa Community College where I completed my IGETC certification to transfer. The next step in my career path is a PhD in Clinical Psychology. When I tutor I like to provide a friendly environment where making mistakes and asking questions is all part of the learning process. I am in no way a disciplinarian that enforces over-practicing. When I teach and when I learn I draw associations so concepts can be readily remembered - this is especially true when learning a language or when understanding math/science concepts. In my free time I enjoy being active! I like most sports and outdoor activities but recently Ive started to refine my rock climbing skills. When time permits Im also an avid traveler and foodie, I like seeing other cultures and tasting their signature dishes.
Most recently I have acted as a college-level writing and biochemistry tutor and an AP Calculus AB tutor. The majority of my experience has involved tutoring students in preparation for their GED and CAHSEE exams in all subjects covered on the exams (Science, Math, Reading, and Writing). I also have two years experience tutoring children with learning disorders and behavioral problems and three years experience working with children with autism.
Although I have a wide range of tutoring experience I most enjoy tutoring Biology and Math because these two subjects are usually what students struggle most with. Ive found many people have the idea that some people are good at math while others are not. I believe that some people just need the concepts to be explained in different ways, which I have found that I am good at doing.
