I have quite a range of experience tutoring and have been doing so since 2009. However, I first started out as a volunteer at Allen School in San Bruno at the ripe age of 13 and continued until I was 17. I supervised children in the playground, ran errands, and helped students with classwork/ homework. When I got older, I was able to accompany students on field trips.
Once I graduated high school, my family and I moved to Sacramento where I soon became a volunteer reading tutor at H. Allen Hight in 2009. I helped students at the 2nd grade level improve their reading skills and increase their vocabulary, as well as their confidence in school.
I went to school at American River College and after a fairly busy year, I graduated with an A.A. in Liberal Arts and an A.S. in Physical Science/ Mathematics at the age of 19. I later received an A.A. in Language Studies. It was during the last semester prior to graduation, that I heard about Care.com and began tutoring a student in Kindergarten. This quickly led to other opportunities with students of various ages.
In 2010, we moved back to the Bay Area, which is where I then started my longest running experience in tutoring a single student, starting from 6th grade until just last month in May 2013, when she graduated middle school. This student has been amazing to work with and I have stuck with her through the good times, as well as the bad. I am proud to say that she was recently accepted to SOTA, a very nice high school of the arts in San Francisco.
When 2012 came around, I began helping students prepare for their Microeconomics finals at San Francisco State through Wyzant.com. I received requests to help adult learners of English, proofread essays, assist users on the navigation of various e-mail providers, and much more.
I became an AVID tutor for the SFUSD in 2013 at Francisco, MLK, Galileo, and John O'Connell. I helped facilitate group participation, tutorials, and graded binders/ paperwork.
This led me to become a volunteer academic coach at Juma Ventures, where I served as a positive role model and helped students complete their homework.
Thanks for reading and good luck!
