I received my B.A. in Philosophy (Magna cum Laude) from UC Santa Cruz in 2009, my Florida State Professional Educator's certificate for grades 6-12 Social Studies in 2015 and I am currently working towards an M.Ed in Learning & Teaching with the Open University, UK. I really believe distance & online learning are so important for helping all people succeed in their education, and the Open University is certainly an innovative institution in this regard; my experience studying there is partly what inspired me to start tutoring online!

I have taught full-time for the past 9 years, with the past 4 as a grades 6-10 social studies teacher. I have tutored both K-12 students and adults in the past in addition to my full-time teaching experience. I have experience teaching & tutoring social studies (history, geography, economics) up to high school level, writing & composition up to college level, and ESL for both children and adults. I can also help you prepare for exams such as the SAT/ACT, GRE, and the FTCE (Florida teacher credentialing exams).

My teaching & tutoring style is mainly focused on building students' capacity to acquire knowledge & skills independently - to 'work myself out of a job' basically! I believe that success for you is being able to teach yourself new things and find the knowledge you need on your own.

Outside of education, my interests are cooking, camping & the outdoors, surfing & snowboarding. I also own a motorbike like any good Vietnamese expat, and I enjoy taking long rides outside HCMC when I have the time.
