Thank you for your interest in hiring me as your tutor. Unfortunately, I am completely booked through the end of February, 2015. Please feel free to contact me, however, to pre-book a tutoring session in March. Please provide me with the following details:
1) Your name and your son or daughter's name
2) Your child's grade
3) The subject your child needs help learning
4) Your residence location
5) Your family's availability
6) Your ideal tutoring schedule
Here is some information about my background and education for your consideration:
I am very passionate about helping students achieve their academic goals and love to see my students’ eyes light up when they finally understand a new concept.
I earned my Bachelor's degree from UCLA with a major in American Literature
, minor in Education, and a specialization in the Diversified Liberal Arts. I also earned a Master’s degree in Education with a specialization in Curriculum Development and Instruction. I then attended law
school and earned my Juris Doctor degree. I have tutored a wide range of students including elementary students, university and graduate students, and adult learners. I have also taught English
abroad in South Korea. Whether you need tutoring, or a sounding board for your college application
or personal statement, I would enjoy the opportunity to be your teacher, mentor, and cheerleader!
I understand that every student has a different learning strength. Therefore, I take an individualized approach to tutoring, and customize each lesson to my students’ needs. My ultimate goal is to fill in any gaps students have in their learning so they can better understand the subject they are struggling with and no longer require my assistance. Many students were never taught the basic concepts of a specific subject. Because students lack a strong foundation, the entire course can be a struggle for them. If this is the situation you are facing, we will work on the basics first so you can better understand your subject as a whole.
I am extremely patient and will not judge you. I will just help you. I will meet you at your level of understanding, whatever that level may be, and we will build from there. I will quickly fill in the gaps, get you caught up, and teach you how to deal with new concepts on your own. Later, if your subject presents a new challenge, we can address it with an occasional tutoring session.
I make myself available for discussion and communication outside of regularly scheduled sessions. I have routinely worked through the night to edit students' college essays and applications as deadlines fast-approached, and have helped calm nerve-racked students prior to their exams and first job interviews.
Thank you again for your interest. I look forward to working with you!
