I'm fluent in Mandarin Chinese, TESOL-certified, and have taught English in China. Having taught in an overcrowded and under-resourced school, I've witnessed firsthand how easily students can fall behind in class. It's difficult for teachers to accommodate students who are on different learning curves in a classroom environment. This is why it's important for students to admit that they're struggling in certain subject areas, and get the help they need.
As a cum laude college graduate, I understand the challenge of cramming for an exam, rather than learning for the sake of learning. We've all wondered as students why we have to take certain classes. My job as a tutor is to not only simplify the material for my students, but to also help them find the relevance of the material and appreciate the learning process. Through 1:1 tutoring sessions, I also help my students identify study methods that are helpful and effective to them personally. By adapting these study skills when approaching subjects students need more help in, they will be better prepared to tackle future challenges they encounter.
I possess 6 years of experience in providing career development services, including: editing resumes, college admissions essays, and graduate personal statements, as well as preparing individuals to showcase their skills and experiences for job interviews. I also specialize in teaching ESL, Chinese, and math for school as well as on the SAT and GRE.
I can be flexible with time and the location, but please respect my 5-hour cancellation policy. I look forward to hearing how I can help you succeed in your studies or career development!
