Hello and welcome!
I'm a newcomer to this website but not to tutoring.
I have been tutoring independently and with tutoring companies since 2004. With my caring, patient and friendly personality, students are very engaged in our tutoring sessions. Majority of my students have completed high school with high GPAs and are currently attending their dream universities. I like to think I made an impact on their academic performance through the variety of techniques I employ in my sessions. I have tutored a wide range of students from elementary level to honors college students.
I started tutoring elementary and middle school students while I was in high school through an after-school program called Kumon. After a year of working at Kumon, I began working with local tutoring companies Xamaze and Clarity Learning. I also taught a summer bridge program and test prep class at Edu 4 U Academy to a group of 4-8 students.
I graduated from Dana Hills High School (CUSD) in 2007 as a valedictorian and went on to study at UC Irvine where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Public Health and Biology with a minor in mathematics. During my time at UCI, I was offered a tutoring position at Learning and Academic Resource Center (LARC) multiple times because of my high performance in calculus, biology and chemistry but due to my busy academic schedule and private tutoring I decided not to pursue that route.
After graduating from UC Irvine, I went on to continue taking post baccalaureate science courses at UCLA and worked shortly for a private tutoring company in Santa Monica.
Currently I am preparing for medical school and studying for the Medical College Admission Test(MCAT). I have some free time and would like to help students in my area.
As a tutor, I will help your child:
- Complete homework assignments on time
- Prepare for tests and quizzes
- Keep track of upcoming assignments
- Develop study skills
- Establish organizational skills and routines
- Strengthen time-management skills
- Promote problem-solving skills
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
From the basic high school genetics dealing with DNA/RNA/Protein to the more advanced college genetics course that requires a deeper understanding, I have always loved this subject. I've been tutoring genetics for many years now and it is always a rewarding experience teaching it to my students. I'm quite knowledgeable in genetics and love teaching it. I was first introduced to it in high school but because of my focus in medicine, I took genetics courses at UCI and I'm also currently reviewing this subject for the MCAT.
As a pre medical student at UC Irvine, I completed Organic chemistry with an A and I also tutored fellow UCI students. I am currently studying for the MCAT and I feel very confident in tutoring this subject. I also have a letter of recommendation being written by my previous o-chem professor to submit for medical schools.
I completed photography courses during high school and it has always been a passion of mine to pursue in my free time. I have been working with my Canon 5d mark ii, an advanced full frame DSLR, for about 5 years and would be very helpful to someone interested in transitioning over from film to DSLR.
Proper study skills are what set apart the average student from those in the top 1% of the graduating class. No doubt, there are many intelligent students out there but those who learn how to study efficiently will be able to balance academics with extra-curricular activities and sports without stressing a great deal. I have learned what works when it comes to studying smart and would enjoy giving these tips to other students. The earlier the students learn these crucial study skills, the easier their lives will be. By working for different tutoring companies and going through their training processes in the past, I have learned what it takes to acquire these study skills.
