I graduated high school with a class of 11, so all throughout elementary and high school I was asked by classmates to help with homework. I found that I was often able to explain concepts in a way that the teachers did not, so that my classmates could understand. And I enjoyed helping them, finding I had a talent at them and feeling a sense of satisfaction whenever I saw someone grasp a concept.

I've been doing unofficial tutoring like that all throughout school, but have had some more formal experience as well. During high school, I volunteered in our elementary to help the kids with homework after school. I trained with the ACT prep club at my university to help high school students learn how to take the ACT as successfully as possible. I am also a teaching assistant for one of the psychology professors, and I help students in introduction to psychology learn concepts and prep for exams.

I went to Lindsay Holy Family High School and am a junior at Creighton University, where I major in Psychology and Theology, with a minor in Spanish. I am working towards my BA.

I tutor in ACT prep, various math classes (i.e. Algebra I and Geometry), Spanish, psychology, and essay editing. I really enjoy tutoring in psychology, since I am experienced with it and love the subject matter (obviously, as it is my major!).

My teaching philosophy is to help the student to help themselves. I try to make sure someone has a good grasp on the concept, rather than just the single question, so that they can succeed on similar problems in the future. I try to explain something in as many different ways as necessary.

I enjoy reading and running. I also like listening to K-pop and K-dramas. I am Roman Catholic and very involved in my parish, helping out with lecturing and other ministries.
