My name is Sydney and I'm 20 years old. I graduated from Mililani High school in Hawaii as a valedictorian with a 4.1 cumulative GPA. I am a bit new to private tutoring, though I have had several jobs in public tutoring. I worked at a learning center in Pearl City, HI for a while and spent nearly a year employed as a PPT at Wheeler Middle School - also in Hawaii. I have also taught piano lessons out of my home for a couple of years.
A little bit more about me academically: I won the Golden Scholars Outstanding Language Arts Student Award with first place, and have taken challenging courses (honors and AP) all through high school. I currently attend the University of Nebraska at Omaha, working toward a major (and eventual PhD) in Neuroscience. I have experience in a wide variety of subjects, however, a few of my specialties are English/literature, writing, psychology, piano/music, and middle school math.
I am extremely passionate about the pursuit of knowledge and helping others in their quest to do so. I fully believe in fostering a love of learning and catering to individual student needs. Since I have recently relocated to Nebraska from a small island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, I am without my own car, and probably will be for some time. Because of this, meetings on or near the UNO campus are preferred (the UNO library is open to the public). If you're in the area and need assistance with anything I have to offer, feel free to contact me. I look forward to working with you!
