Hello, I am a math teacher with 4 years of experience. I have prepared my students for AP Tests, SAT, algebra I-II courses at some colleges in Oakland such as Lincoln University. I also teach Saturday school for students whom are in need of help and those whom I have high expectations for. Some of my students have been admitted by top universities such as UC Berkeley, UC Davis, CSU East Bay, SFSU and many more. When I was at University I was a tutor as well, which is where I gained most of my experience. It is not easy to be a teacher; however, when you see a student of yours succeed, you are the happiest person in the world.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

CBEST

I possess a California Teaching Credential. The first step to earning this credential is to pass CBEST. I have studied extensively for this test, have a good knowledge of what's on it and have proof of a passing score.

College Counseling

This is my first year and I am currently working as a college counselor. I am currently in the process of getting my Counseling Certificate from University of California San Diego. I will also start a master's program in January.

Turkish

I am Turkish native speaker. I was born and raised in Turkey for 18 years. I used to work as a Turkish instructor a private school. Some of my students attended International Turkish Olympiad and earned Silver and Bronze medals.
