Hi! My name is Manushi, but I prefer to go by Nushi.
I'm a third-year Psychology and Philosophy double major with a concentration in Ethics and Public Policy at UC Santa Barbara. I'm originally from the South Bay area and went to some of the most competitive public schools on the West coast.
I specialize in teaching Japanese, Environmental Science (AP and regular), and ACT prep and have over 6 years of experience at age 20.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Learning is partially the teacher's responsibility, and partially the student's responsibility. I won't throw you to the dogs and expect you to learn anything on your own without explaining it to you first, but I do expect that you thoroughly learn that material before the next time we meet to avoid having to re-explain the basics. Most concepts in any subject are based on prior knowledge -- usually cumulative information within the chapter you're studying -- so it will be very difficult to keep making progress if you don't put in the time to master the concepts after each session ends.
