Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Career Development

I have six years of experience in bolstering resumes, conducting mock interviews, and proofreading personal statements in a variety of professions. From being a college recruiter for a Fortune 20 company, my advice to students is to always take the time to define and develop their interests before trying to convince others that they are a good fit. Through one-on-one meetings, I help students find fulfilling careers that are align with their interests and skill sets, hash out their elevator speeches, and prepare thoughtful and focused interview answers to land the jobs they want.

College Counseling

I have over six years of experience in helping individuals write college essays and personal statements for a variety of graduate programs. Writing is a skill that is to be refined through a process, and this seems like a daunting task when eloquent and focused thoughts don't naturally flow from our finger tips. I support my students from start to finish by helping them generate thoughts and ideas, filtering/focusing, outlining, writing, and revising. I don't have a universal secret formula, but I listen to the things my students tell me about themselves and I advise them on what to focus on or stay away from to best sell themselves on their qualifications. This involves their voice and the expression of their interests and passions. With my help, my students are able to present who they are in an impressive, genuine, and humble manner.

ESL/ESOL

I am a native English speaker, TESOL-certified, and have taught English in China to children in a classroom and adults in the workplace. Learning a foreign language is difficult, and is most effectively done through immersion. However, it can also be intimidating to some, so my aim is to challenge my students and ultimately build their confidence in the learning process.

In order for my students to get the most out of my teaching, I try to first understand their needs and goals. After understanding a student's goals (prepare for a test, apply for graduate school, find a job, etc.) and oral/written English levels, I can adapt lessons to the appropriate context to make the content more relatable. To ensure my teaching methods are conducive to a particular student's learning, I effectively set objectives, plan lessons, check for understanding before proceeding to other subjects, and constantly review.

Public Speaking

As a former teacher and recruiter, I know what captivates audiences. Both jobs involved presenting information in a concise manner and evaluating knowledge/performance. Whether you're speaking to a child or persuading someone to hire you in a job interview, your message must be tailored to your audience so they are compelled to listen to what you have to say. Public Speaking is a skill that can't be obtained from simply reading about it, it must be developed through practice and it begins with the ability to handle everyday conversations in a confident manner. It excites me to see the transformation of individuals who once lacked confidence speaking about subjects they're familiar with to having conversations about topics they're less familiar with while still exuding confidence.

Very patient with attention to detail and accuracy — Judy was always positive, reassuring, and patient. Her attention to detail is fundamental and she was very persistent about correct tones and the accuracy of written characters. And most of all, she keeps it fun. I learned a lot and speak a certain level of Mandarin with confidence thanks to her way of teaching. I would definitely recommend Judy as a tutor. ...
