With an MBA in Entrepreneurship from Pepperdine and a BA in Psychology from UC San Diego, I have done my fair share of getting through classes and preparing for tests. Having successfully completed an adequate level of education, I now enjoy helping other students achieve their academic goals. In my 4 years of tutoring experience, I have had a lot of fun tutoring students from elementary to high school in various subjects and test preparation, both in the US and abroad.

My teaching style is a mix of going over informative content and using Socratic method -- asking questions to have students learn through the use of critical thinking, reasoning and logic to find the answer. As I get to know my students, I also note their problem-solving styles and help them leverage their strengths and strengthen their weaknesses. I believe that a combination of these techniques will help develop higher creative thinking that will be valuable within and beyond the classroom.

With that said, I am excited to get to know you and I look forward to meeting you soon!

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.

ESL/ESOL

As someone who is bilingual in English and Thai, with English being my first language and Thai being my native but learned language, I am familiar with the different types of road blocks that come with learning a new language and overcoming those myself. I have tutored ESL/ESOL both in the US and Thailand, and its one of the subjects I personally enjoy teaching most.

Study Skills

I was always one of those students that took a bit longer to learn something and had to study harder than most people. However, once I finally got something, I can usually simplify it for everyone else. Over time, I had developed and picked up effective study strategies that helped speed up the learning process. I am by no means a prodigy, but I can say that my scholastic performance has always been above par. Experience has shown me that at the end of the day, hard work, discipline and fostering the right study habits are the keys to success.
