Hi! These are the subjects that I tutor:

• Sciences: Biology (AP), Earth sciences, all middle school levels of science
Math: most levels and subject areas for middle school and high school
math
• The Social Sciences: History, Government, Economics and Politics
• The Humanities: Literature, Critical Reading and Writing, Grammar,
and Oral Composition
• Languages: English, Spanish and German.

About me:
I have extensive academic and teaching background, including two Masters degrees and experience teaching at UC Berkeley as a PhD student.
I very much enjoy learning, teaching, and helping students to find enthusiasm for the material they are studying and to build confidence in their abilities to succeed in life.
My current internship as a Marriage and Family Therapist gives me deeper insight into the psychological blocks and struggles that students often encounter when learning new material. I work with each student in a patient, caring, and fun way to address their individual needs.

Thank you!
Annabelle

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I currently tutor middle school students in all subjects, so I feel competent to tutor elementary subjects as well. I enjoy working with students of all ages!

ESL/ESOL

I have studied many foreign languages myself such as Sanskrit, Hindi, Tamil, Bengali, French, Spanish and German, so I am very familiar with the language learning process. I have taught reading and composition courses at UC Berkeley, as well as tutored high school students with reading comprehension issues. I am an editor for scholars who are non-native English speakers and so am familiar with the common mistakes and challenges that people are faced with when trying to learn English. I have done one on one tutoring with European students when I was an undergraduate studying in Germany as well.

Hindi

I have studied Hindi at the graduate school level for six years. I have also spent a semester studying abroad in India in a Hindi language school.
