Two of my favorite things are learning and helping others. These two values are reflected in almost everything I do. Tutoring is an activity that mixes those two values of mine.
I obtained my Bachelors Degree in English with a focus on ESL in Vietnam in 2009. After that, I taught ESL classes for four years. I enjoyed the job tremendously. English is crucial for getting a job in a country like Vietnam. More than that, speaking another language is like living another life. I was so glad that I spent part of my life helping others achieve that dream.
I moved to the States with my family in 2013. Living here made me realize that I need an education, firstly to escape the rat race of low-paid labor jobs, and secondly to achieve true living, that is, learning and helping others. Only through education can I quench my thirst for knowledge and build a career that allows me to dedicate my time and money for the needy. I chose to aim for Medical schools because studying to become a physician requires a lot of subjects, natural, social sciences and humanity alike. Also, a career as a doctor would mean a lot of opportunities to contribute to the society.
College was an amazing time. Taking all the required foundation courses, graduating with Distinguished Honors 4.0 GPA, joining summer international trips to Germany and England were among the highlights. I also got a tutor job for Math and Science, which has rekindled my love for teaching. I am currently attending University of St. Thomas for my Bachelors Degree in Biochemistry. I hope to still have the time for tutoring besides studying full time.
Communicating and sharing knowledge is such a beautiful thing that we human are capable of. That is what tutoring is about. I am so happy to be blessed with the ability to do this job.
