I am a Berkeley-graduate mother of 3 with a former legal career. I'm very experienced in tutoring. Throughout my own school career, I'd always been asked to tutor other students. In addition, I have gained experiences as a volunteer at our local pre-school and elementary school, and from teaching my own children. Therefore, I have lots of experiences working with students. I am friendly and effective. My work experiences have demanded that I have good writing skills and be an effective communicator. I am also fluent in Chinese with lots of experiences in translating and interpreting.
I have 8 years of experiences in grading and tutoring from volunteering at the local elementary school. The subjects include reading, writing and math. The grades range from K through 6th. I also have passed the Irvine school district proficiency test for teaching assistants in the over 90% range. This test includes all elementary-level subjects and discipline skills.
I have experiences in helping my own children with phonics. I also have experiences in tutoring kindergartners and 1st graders while volunteering in their reading programs. I have put together a packet for my own children to use. I have passed the school district proficiency test for teacher's assistants.
I have a bachelor's degree from University of California, Berkeley in political science. My grades from related classes have been more than satisfactory. I am a licensed attorney in the State of California.
