I am a graduate from Claremont Graduate University with a master’s degree in education and a California English credential. I am also a Fulbright scholar and have taught English in South Korea. I am committed to teaching meaningful lessons that foster academic curiosity through innovation and creativity. Tutoring is the best opportunity to teach to the strengths and weaknesses of a student. It offers the chance to form a bond with a student and relate information in the best way.

I have experience tutoring a variety of subjects to middle school and high school students, as well as adults. I tutor high school English I-IV, AP and IB English, Spanish I-V, and Algebra I. I am especially helpful with big English projects or college essays/personal statements. I can also help other teachers with the CBEST and the CSET English. I am also proficient in Spanish and would be happy to work with families that speak Spanish. I look forward to working with you!

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 took the CBEST in April of 2009. I passed with a score of 179. The minimum passing score is 123. My reading score was 60; my math score was 56; and my writing score was 63. A minimum of 37 is required to pass each section. I am a graduate from Claremont Graduate University with a master’s degree in education and a California English credential. I am also a Fulbright scholar and have taught English in South Korea.

Spanish

I have studied Spanish extensively through middle, high school, and college. While in my junior year of undergrad, I studied abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina for six months. I took all of my classes from Spanish-speaking professors at the Universidad de Buenos Aires and also volunteered at a non-governmental organization. Additionally, I worked as an assistant teacher in a Spanish-immersion classroom in Huntington Beach. Communication in another language is a skill and a gift that I hope I can help others enjoy and appreciate.
