I have tutored for about 13 years now including the following topics:
-- English as a Second Language
-- Mathematics from Kindergarten to Pre-Calculus
-- Test Prep for SAT/ACT/GRE/ASVAB/GED/HSK
-- Reading Comprehension
My favorite things to tutor are Chinese, English, and Math. I like Chinese and English because I enjoy helping people be able to communicate their ideas clearly. Mathematics is really enjoyable for me because it comes naturally and I find I can explain things clearly to students.
I went to school at Auburn University from 2003 to 2007. God gave me a love and patience for helping people that has translated into me becoming a teacher. I am happy and excited to help you learn! I studied Economics and received my Bachelor's Degree. I am currently going to MidAmerican Nazarene University to get my Master's Degree in ESOL.
My tutoring style is to get students in an environment where they feel safe and excited to learn and make mistakes while they practice without feeling like they are going to be pummeled for their mistakes. I find this really helps to get struggling students back on track.
I really enjoy hosting bible studies, playing sports and games, lastly I like to go hiking. I love to make jokes and make people laugh.
