I have a degree in Psychology and have much experience working with students of all ages. I have been working as a tutor in my community for over 10 years. I specialize working with international students, elementary students, and middle school students. I have taught English overseas in Korea in which I specialized in English conversation and essay writing skills. Due to my background education in psychology, this is always a favorite one to tutor. I am a person who will not only strive for the student's success, but also try to do so in a manner where the student is comfortable as well. My personality is laid back and down to earth with a cheerful mindset.
