I have always had a passion for teaching. My experience teaching started with being a gymnastics coach and swimming instructor when I was in high school. After my second year of college, I spent the summer as a teaching assistant in a high school. This continued every summer thereafter. I worked as a teaching assistant for middle school and high school Math, Biology, Chemistry and French. My role consisted of explaining concepts to the students, grading exams and preparing practice exams. I found teaching to be a very fulfilling job and learned a great deal about different learning styles and how to tailor information specific to the student that I was working with.

Outside of my teaching assistant job, I tutored students who were particularly struggling with the curriculum. Growing up with a brother who is 11 years younger than me, teaching has always been a part of my life. I have always helped him with his homework and prepared practice exams to help solidify his knowledge. Now, having recently moved to San Francisco to get my Master's in genetic counseling, I would love to continue helping students learn.

I see teaching/learning as something that is different for every student, so the more information that you can provide me on what you would like to learn, the more I can help and the more results you will see. I know that last minute things can come up, so I require a minimum 2 hour cancellation notice. More time would be greatly appreciated but you don't have to worry if you start to feel sick the morning before our lesson.

I know that learning isn't fun when you're struggling but I'll work as hard as I can to make sure that you understand the basics so that you will enjoy what you're learning.

I look forward to hearing from you and getting started!

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 have a range of experiences working with kids of this age group - from coaching gymnastics and swimming to tutoring at an elementary/high school. I worked as a TA at a school that teaches from K-12. After school, there were a number of kids in grades 4-6 who came in for after school tutoring. In addition, I have a 12 year old brother who I have tutored his entire schooling. I have made practice exams and explored ways that make learning easier and more fun.
