“A wise teacher makes learning a joy.”
I am Yasi and I have been tutoring for the past 10 years. I graduated with Magna Cum Laude honors from UCLA in 2005. Soon after, I pursued my graduate studies in the field of clinical psychology. I have both a Master of Arts (2009) and a Doctor of Philosophy (2013) in clinical psychology.
Growing up, I had a knack for all subjects. Not only was I good at school, but I loved teaching and working with others. So, as I worked my way through school, tutoring seemed like a natural choice for me. My first student was in 11th grade, and I tutored him in algebra II, chemistry, and English. From there, I slowly built my clientele and found that many of my students needed help with math. Sometimes they were struggling to pass and other times they needed the extra support to get an "A." As a result, I gained extensive experience tutoring math, specifically in algebra I & II, and geometry. However, I also have experience with English, writing, history, and science. More recently, I started tutoring students in undergraduate and graduate level psychology courses. Lastly, I have experience with learning disabilities.
In addition to experience, I strive to teach my students in a way that is simple and motivating. I challenge students to think critically and creatively as I believe that learning and good study habits incorporate more than just memorizing. An effective learner can adapt to new situations and think on his/her feet. This is an important skill not just in learning and test taking, but in life.
I love teaching and would love the opportunity to support you or your child in your academic endeavors. Feel free to contact me to set up an appointment and/or if you have any questions. Below you will find a list of subjects I tutor. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
