Hi parents and potential students,
My name is Valerie, and I am a UC Berkeley graduate with a degree in Nutritional Science. Most of my coursework involved studying the human body, and therefore I have an extensive knowledge of human biology. I also love math and have taken math courses up to and including calculus.
When teaching, I am patient. I constantly try different ways of explaining a concept. I also have high expectations from my students because I know that they are capable with the right amount of effort and time. Lastly, I am a good listener and use this skill to get to know my students. Understanding what is important to someone, I believe, is the best way to motivate and encourage life long learning and self discipline.
I look forward to hearing from and meeting you.
