Hi everyone!

It's really competitive these days to land a decent job, and all the harder if there aren't accomplishments to your name. I am a graduate of UC Merced with a Bachelors in Psychology, and I want to help potential parents and students pull out their inner potential.

Because of my background in Industrial Organizational and clinical psychology, I know what it feels like to sit through a whole lecture by a boring teacher, one you may or may not even like, just to try and absorb that information. I am here to help speed up that process, through interactive learning and hands-on experience, to help your child realize his or her potential! Thank you.

ACT English

As a recent graduate, the four years have literally flown by. And now high school seniors are deathly worried about which test looks best for them.

Even though I opted out of the ACT due to costs and time, many practice ACTs netted me a score of 30. I can help drive home the basics of the English language so those 1000 word paragraphs will seem like relics of the past.

Chemistry

I am an avid fan of chemistry, even having scored a 4 on the AP Chemistry exam and taking extra chemistry classes in college for fun (even though my specialty is psychology).

I know chemistry is one of the three pillars of science, and so I dedicate myself to periodic trends. And with my help, you or your child will too!

English

English, contrary to popular belief, is a fairly hard language for people wanting to learn it. The nuances and throat tones may mean something completely different if you have never encountered as such.

I can help teach the "street" English so people won't feel as if they're missing something in the conversation.

General Computer

With the advent of tablets and laptops being integrated into the school system, it is sometimes very stressful for your programs to not work during a crucial assignment. I have fixed many computers (usually from malware), but I also have the knowledge and methods to prevent these problems from happening again.

Martial Arts

I am a trained shodan in Matsubayashi Shorin Ryu, under Sensei Michael Nguyen (sandan) and Sensei Kamalei Cruz (shodan) under the system headed by Hanshi Dan Tosh. I have also trained in a little bit of the sister style Shobayashi Shorin Ryu, headed by Kyoshi Sid Rayford. I have, and am continuing to train for 4 years.

I borrow the teaching methods which I have learned from the hombu and some of my own teaching style in certain areas.

Reading

Reading is one of those things most students never seem to want to do. Teachers tell them to read certain chapters, they go to Sparknotes. Having graduated with a Bachelors in Psychology, I can see how harrowing it is to read research after research, nonstop.

But they don't have to take to Sparknotes, because I can teach them certain strategies that can identify the most important information without having a word overload.

SAT Math

Nowadays, it's almost necessary to have a strong mathematics and logica foundation. Without those, one can't even work the major fields! I can help create and build that strong foundation with my qualifications in pre-algebra, algebra 1 and 2, and SAT math in general.

Vocabulary

Many overseas students are sometimes first and second generation, and one burden is that their family knows hardly any English. So all the contracts and job descriptions fall on their shoulders; this is where I come in.

Having gone through exactly this, I can help grind those hundred dollar words to seem like a mere two cents, wherever you may see them.

Writing

Writing, in my opinion, is among the hardest subjects for students to master. Even college-level people have trouble writing a fluid piece of work.

I have worked and studied both of the most popular formats, MLA and APA, with proficiency in both.
