I am a Cognitive Science major at the University of California, San Diego. For the past two years, I studied both Cognitive Science and Literature at the University of California, Santa Cruz. I have been teaching English to native and non-native English speakers, both children and teenagers, for several years; I have coached students in interpretive public speaking to prepare them for tournaments; and as a teacher's assistant, I tutored high school students in A.P. Biology. I've also helped students with homework. I can tutor elementary schoolers in a variety of subjects, and middle/high schoolers in English. I can also edit essays or creative writing pieces, help with test prep, or coach public speaking. I know tutoring can be frustrating, especially if you're struggling and asking for help isn't your forte. My goal is to always be encouraging. I have had tutors who made me feel stupid for not remembering a concept, or for asking questions with "obvious" answers. This has taught me that patience is the key to a supportive, beneficial tutoring environment. Outside of academia, I love to read and write. I also adore anything involving music-- I play piano and guitar and write songs in my spare time. I have been singing since I was three, and will gladly give voice lessons, as well. Above all, I love talking to people and making others laugh. Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions! Thanks, Prerana
