Thank you for your interest in hiring me as your tutor. I am very passionate about helping students achieve their academic goals and love to see my students’ eyes light up when they finally understand a new concept. I earned my Bachelor's degree from UCLA, and advanced degrees from Cal State LA and Drexel University. I have tutored elementary students, university and graduate students, and adult learners, and have taught English abroad in South Korea. Whether you need tutoring, or a sounding board for your college application or personal statement, I would enjoy the opportunity to be your teacher, mentor, and cheerleader!
I take an individualized approach to tutoring, as I understand that everyone has a different learning strength. I believe in setting short-term and long-term goals at the first meeting to help keep both parties (student and teacher) stay focused on shared objectives.
My ultimate goal is to fill in any gaps you have in your learning so you can better understand the subject you are struggling with, and no longer require my assistance. I will quickly fill in the gaps, get you caught up, and teach you how to deal with new concepts on your own. Later, if your subject presents a new challenge, we can handle that with an occasional tutoring session.
I am extremely patient and will not judge you. I will just help you. I will meet you at your level of understanding, wherever that is, and we will build from there. Many students were never taught the basic concepts behind their courses. Because students lack a strong foundation in the basic concepts, the entire course can be a struggle for them. If this is the situation you are facing, we will work on the basics first so you can better understand your subject as a whole.
I make myself available for discussion and communication outside of regularly scheduled sessions. I have routinely worked through the night to edit students' college essays and applications as deadlines fast-approached, and have helped calm nerve-racked students prior to their exams and first job interviews.
Thank you again for your interest. I look forward to working with you!
