Hello! My name is Tiffany, and I've been tutoring since 2010. While studying communications and art history at UCLA, I often tutored classmates on the current material and organized study groups. Since graduating, I've been working with K-12 students on English and math at a tutoring center. I have also worked as a part time lecturer at a private college, developing a course on Russian literature in translation, teaching a course on the history of western civilization, as well as substitute teaching a philosophy course. My favorite subjects to teach are English, critical thinking, and study skills. I'm passionate about helping my students diagnose their academic strengths and weaknesses, working with them to come up with an individualized study plan, helping them develop better study habits and skills, and boosting their confidence. During my free time I love to read, do yoga, and hike. I also love playing with my 8-year-old chihuahua/corgi mix!

What is your teaching philosophy?
I have had the privilege of working with an incredibly diverse array of students in the past, both as a tutor of K-12 students as well as a part-time lecturer at a private college. Through these experiences I've come to realize the importance of personalizing the material and my teaching style to each student's need. I also strive to establish a personal connection with my students so that they are more receptive to my help.
