I am a fun, friendly and creative teacher with over 18 years experience teaching students from K-16. I have a B.A. in History from UC Berkeley and a Masters degree in Education from UCLA. I am fluent in conversational Mandarin.
I have been both a private tutor (18 years) and a classroom teacher (4 years). I have decided to return to tutoring because being able to motivate and teach individual students is my passion. I have experience helping students with learning challenges. I have experience with students with ADD, Dyslexia and Aspergers. I believe that learning should be fun and strive to make my lessons multi-sensory and memorable. Everyone deserves to feel success in school.
I have over 9 years of experience teaching elementary school students all subjects. I wrote and implemented math curriculum for a elementary tutorial program and have been a elementary school classroom teacher specializing in social studies and literature.
I have over 10 years experience teaching English Language Learners. I have helped many international students and business professionals how to master the English language. The lessons I teach include: Vocabulary and Grammar, Conversational English, American Culture, Writing, Interview skills, Resume and Cover Letter preparation, Accent Reduction and TOEFL test preparation.
I am a child of immigrants, so I know how hard it is to find time to learn and master the English language. I believe that an ESL teacher should be fun and patient.
I enjoy helping others overcome their fear of public speaking. I was a competitive speaker for many years and I have a multitude of strategies I can share to help people master the art of speaking in public. Whether it is for a simple school assignment or important work presentation, I can guide my students toward giving clear, concise, informative and often entertaining speeches.
I have taught study skills to my students for many years. As a classroom teacher, I would dedicate a good portion of my time teaching my students how to study, organize their materials, and use their time effectively to complete assignments and prepare for quizzes and tests. I found that many time students just needed a little guidance on how to take good notes, create flashcards and other study strategies in order to master the material.
