I'm Bonnie and I am a recent honors graduate of the English Department at UC Berkeley. I've worked as a personal tutor since my sophomore year of high school in 2008, and have students of all ages and backgrounds. In the past couple of years, alongside personal tutoring, I've also been Head Tutor at Cap Prep Academy's after-school program, as well as the Reading Comprehension SAT instructor at Kairos Academy in San Ramon. I currently reside in Richmond.
In terms of teaching methods or style, I'm flexible and accommodating according to the combined needs of students and parents. I have experience helping students raise their grades, and also targeting specific topics (English, SAT prep, etc.) for high achievers. I am very open to communicating with parents and students about their specific needs, and encourage success through self-belief. I have experience with casual interactions with middle and high school students, having been a leader at my church youth group.
I'd like to grow up to write tons of books and make a lot of people happy. I'd also like to work with students like yourselves, so that when the time comes for you to grow up, you can get the right grades, go to the right school, get the right education, and do whatever you want to do. Because while we may not end up using Geometry proofs or the Newton's second law, or the precise dictionary definition of "somnambulist" in our immediate future, we go to school for the freedom it lends us--the freedom to be happy.
