For me, teaching and tutoring is an open exchange of knowledge and insight. Each session is an opportunity for me to learn a bit more about the psychology of learning and improve my teaching skills. I approach each student with an open mind and encourage them with positive reinforcement and a uniquely modified attention to the individual's special needs and capabilities.

I have a significant amount of tutoring and teaching experience ranging from diverse backgrounds, ages, and cultures. I started tutoring peers in essay assistance, grammar and syntax correction, and general writing revisions at the Fullerton College Writing Center. I also have volunteer experience working with elementary through high school students at 826LA's after school tutoring program and working one on one with dyslexic students at Baldwin Hills Library. Most recently, I took a year to teach English in Japan to children and adults, ranging in topics from casual English to business English.

Currently, I work as an academic counselor for graduate students and am planning on attending graduate school for Occupational Therapy and Gerontology with a specialization in Landscape Architecture. It is my ultimate objective to be able to design public spaces that are universally functional for the disabled and elderly. I am hopeful that a successful tutoring career can supplement my graduate degree.

Q & A

How do you adapt your tutoring to the student's needs?

I take the time to get to know a student - their capabilities, interests, areas of expertise, and weak points. Then, I try and structure lessons based on this, adapting the delivery of the lessons to the unique abilities and needs of the student.
