I graduated from UC Berkeley in 2004 and completed my Master's of Education from Pepperdine University. I am fully credentialed in mathematics up to Calculus and currently teach high school math in the South Bay. I recently cleared my credential.
For the past 12 years, I have been tutoring math, the SAT, and ACT. On average my SAT students improve 300 points. I can also tutor SAT Reading and Writing by request as I have done so multiple times. Over my career, I have taught the SAT to about 1000 students through both classes and tutorials. I can counsel the student on whether or not they should take the SAT or ACT.
For high school math and middle school math, I identify the weaknesses of each student and provide supplemental material and quizzes for them each session. I have plenty of experience working with English Learners and students with IEPs (I have ELL authorization through the state of California).
Finally, I can teach microeconomics and macroeconomics as this was my college major. I have taught college students in both San Jose and LA.
I passed the CBSET in 2011. I am now a credentialed teacher (have also passed the CSET: Mathematics I, II,and III)
I'm the head Public Forum debate coach at Mountain View High School. In high school, I was President of my school's debate team and went to the national tournament in Lincoln-Douglas debate. Currently, I am involved in Toastmasters. I really enjoy teaching public speaking and helping people create speeches.
I earned a perfect 800 on SAT Math.
I have been playing tennis since I was 8 years old. I played for my high school team as well as in different leagues. I have tutored many beginners in tennis and I know how to get them to improve fast. My technique is excellent and I am good at teaching the fundamentals.
