To my prospective students and parents, I'm an educator with a few college degrees in science and health science. I enjoy tutoring children K-12. For the last five years, I've been a volunteer-tutor in community organizations. I am fluent in Portuguese and Cantonese, seconded by Spanish.

I'd like to share with you my goal as your tutor. I am attentive to your needs while working with you. I am resourceful, creative, and tireless to help you learn the objectives of your daily lessons and homework. I hope to foster your motivation to learn. My biggest accomplishment as a tutor was helping a child with ADHD to organize a given reading assignment. He maintained focused at the task. He also wanted to do more using the applied method which he liked. Learning is a self-fulfillment process. I wish for my student to feel it upon finishing their assignments.
