I graduated from Emory University with my Bachelor of Science degree in Neuroscience. I am employed as an in-home tutor for SAT, ACT, GED, ESL, math, chemistry, and Chinese (2.5 years with 4.9/5.0 average rating) and as an online tutor for chemistry, English essay writing, and editing (3.5 years with 4.6/5.0 average rating). My clients range from elementary, middle, and high school students to adult learners that I tutor individually or in small groups, and I also teach students with learning disabilities. I develop personalized lesson plans for each subject to help students reach their goals and strengthen areas they need to improve the most. My online tutoring supervisor has remarked that my top qualities are enthusiasm, identifying student needs, ensuring understanding, and clarity.

Previously, I volunteered as an in-home tutor for Bhutanese high school students with English as their second language. I was also a teacher's assistant and tutored lab techniques in a biology classroom. I am currently in school for my MSW degree and aim to be a counselor in the future.

I'm passionate about teaching because I want to help my students reach their potential and achieve their goals in education and life. My favorite subjects to tutor are math, science, and writing. As a tutor, I am patient and listen to my students to directly address their concerns. I'm organized and good at planning and time management. I actively engage my students, encourage them to ask questions and give their own suggestions on problem solving. In the past, I have discovered that my students learn concepts best from simple explanations, responding to hints and leading questions, and practicing solving similar problems.
