I graduated cum laude from the University of California, Los Angeles with a Bachelor of Arts, double-majoring in History and Asian American Studies. In 2007, I earned my Juris Doctorate from the University of Hawai`i’s William S. Richardson School of Law where my summaries of law review articles and court cases were published in a legal newsletter. As an undergraduate student, I first began tutoring my peers in English Composition, English Literature, and College Algebra; however, for the last five years, I have been a K-12th grade tutor, primarily focusing on Language Arts. Professional training includes time management, organization, prioritization, study skills, and test preparation. I instruct all levels of English through college-level AP Language/AP Literature, Math through Algebra I, History (World History, American History, History of Religions, etc.) Ethnic Studies (Native Hawaiian, Native American, Asian-American, African-American, Chicano Studies, etc.), Government, and Political Science/Law. I am a compassionate and dedicated educator which is evidenced by my students who have regularly scored 25% higher, or more, on diagnostic testing.
I am qualified to tutor criminal justice because I have a Juris Doctorate degree. In law school, I took and passed courses such as Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure. I still have my law school books on the subject and have retained an excellent grasp of the material.
I am qualified to tutor Elementary K-6 courses. I have worked as a K-12 tutor for the past five years. During this time, I have tutored Language Arts, Math, and other subjects to hundreds of elementary school students, both in group settings and one-one-on.
I am qualified to tutor Music History. One of my undergraduate majors at UCLA was History. I was fortunate enough to be able to take several Music History courses such as the History of Jazz, the History of Opera, and the History of Hip Hop, earning A's in each.
I am qualified to tutor Religion. As an undergraduate at UCLA, one of my majors was History. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to take courses such as the History of the World's Great Religions and the History of Religion, Magic, & Witchcraft, earning A's in each.
I am qualified to teach Study Skills. For the last five years, I have been a professional tutor. During this time, I have taken the study skills that made me a successful student and have adapted them to fit the individual needs of my own tutees, making them better learners and productive students in the process.
