I went to UC Berkeley for a B.A. in Sociology. I'm currently preparing for a PhD program in Clinical Psychology. I've tutored in various subjects for years, including test-based tutoring (such as the SAT and AP exams) as well as general tutoring - help through the course of a year or semester in Algebra, Geometry, Calculus, etc. I've worked with students of all ages, from teaching elementary and middle school students basic math to working with local high school students on geometry and calculus courses and SATs to helping local college students on their math curricula.
In addition to my tutoring experience, I received formal tutor training in effective tutoring methods at the San Diego Miramar College. I received 800's on both my SAT I and SAT II Math, and 5s on my AP Calculus AB, BC, and AP Chemistry exams. Although I am proficient in various subjects, mathematics is my favorite subject to tutor.
I love teaching because helping students improve and achieve their academic goals is very rewarding. I strive to help students become independent learners through building their confidence in mastering the material. I engage and motivate students to master the material through providing positive feedback. I actively seek feedback to tailor my teaching approach to the student's unique learning style. I encourage strong study habits and foster confidence that the students will retain throughout their academic careers and beyond.
I look forward to speaking with you more about your learning and studying needs!
