Hello I'm Kang Thao and I am 21 years old. I graduated from C.K. McClatchy High School and attend 2 years in Sacramento City College. My favorite subject in school is English. My hobbies are drawing, reading, and tennis. I like to be organized.
While I was in high school, I took a summer tutoring job. I tutored middle school Hmong students at Luther Burbank High School during the summer of 2009. The Hmong students were new to English, and were struggling. I helped them with their English reading and writing. I proofread and translated words that they didn't understand. I also helped out the teacher when she needed help.
In my college years, I took a tutoring class. We tutored elementary school students after school. I tutored 1st graders at Maple Elementary School. I was nervous and excited to meet my students, but when I met my students I was happy and excited to start my lesson. I taught phonics, sight words, reading, and writing to my students. I provided fun and easy games to help my students enjoy learning. I also provided flash cards to help them with their sight words. I read to my students and sometimes I had them read to me. They are always eager to read and learn. I liked that my students are dedicated to learning and that makes me want to teach them more.
