I graduated from UC Berkeley with a B.A. in public health and art history. After several years of pursuing meaningful public health work in the Bay Area, I have decided to pursue something more artistic and creative. I am currently attending Sierra College to earn a certificate in Graphic Design. I love teaching and education and have a natural tendency to teach no matter what I am doing. My specific teaching and tutoring experience includes several years of tutoring at an elementary school in Berkeley and teaching English in South Korea. Additionally, I am an HIV test counselor at the Berkeley Free Clinic in the Bay Area. I am a member of the core training group that trains new members, develops curriculum, and facilitates classes. I am comfortable tutoring a wide range of subjects from elementary through high school. I find all subjects interesting and valuable, but I particularly love math because it promotes and improves logical reasoning skills that can be applied to any subject and our daily lives. I also believe that any student can be good at math. More broadly, I believe that every student can succeed with the proper tools and effort. When I tutor, I make an effort to explain concepts in a variety of ways and applications because we all understand things differently. I believe learning is fun and interesting, and I share my enthusiasm with my students. When I’m not tutoring or in school, I am probably traveling, hiking, cooking, playing with my dog, or working on some kind of DIY project. I also enjoy painting, playing sports, watching live theater, movies, soccer and rugby.
