At Stanford University I worked at the Center for Teaching and Learning and spent a considerable amount of time at the Career Development Center. In addition to tutoring, my duties included assisting students to find their chosen career path based on their talents, hobbies and skills.
I also worked as a peer mentor at Stanford University. As part of my job, I assisted students with class mentoring, résumé building and provided guidance in choosing a college major and future career. I've been exposed to numerous fields and can help you take the correct steps in finding the career of your dreams.
I served as a peer mentor at Stanford for two years and mentored several high school students. If you're a college student in need of help to plan your course schedule or need advice navigating through the system I'd love to help!
If you're in high school preparing for college, I have a surplus of experience to be of assistance. In 2007 I was admitted to all undergraduate schools that I applied to including Ivy League Universities and the top 10 undergraduate colleges in the US. I'm an expert at the application process and can help you create a fantastic admissions package. I've worked with several students and helped them to reach their dream schools.
As a college student at Stanford, I was diagnosed with dyslexia. To overcome this learning disability I went through extensive neuropsychological training at both the University of California, San Diego and Stanford University to learn the brain process of dyslexia and how to beat this challenge.
Since l have learned how to navigate through this learning disability, I have become an advocate for the condition and thoroughly enjoy tutoring students and helping them to overcome it as I did. I have years of tutoring experience both working for Stanford University and Cardinal Education (Palo Alto, CA) assisting students with learning disabilities and specifically dyslexia. Being dyslexic does not put a student at a disadvantage, it only means the student thinks and experiences learning in a different way. Once a student is able to find the correct strategies for their particular situation, they can achieve great success.
I graduated from Stanford University with a very strong academic record and am definitely qualified to help a student struggling with dyslexia. I have specific note taking strategies, reading tips and study methods that have proven to improve grades in all subjects. As the saying goes, "It take one to know one" and being a dyslexic students places me in a unique position to relate to another dyslexic student and make a break through in their education.
I graduated from Stanford University with a degree in Human Biology and am a current graduate student at Tulane University. Throughout my education, I've thoroughly enjoyed tutoring and working with younger children. At Stanford I volunteered with several organizations tutoring elementary school children in math, science, reading and writing.
After graduating from Stanford, I worked with the Palo Alto Unified School District where I taught elementary and middle school education. I've run a small childcare business and have the patience and experience to help elementary students of all ages.
Genetics is one of my favorite subjects! As a Human Biology major at Stanford I studied many aspects of genetics and am excited to help you learn the aspects of this interesting field. I completed all of my genetics courses at the top of my class and was able to assist other students in the laboratory. I am thoroughly familiar with analyzing genotypes and phenotypes and I also worked at Stanford University studying the genetics of a neurodegenerative disease.
At Stanford I excelled at both lab experiments and classroom lectures featuring genetics. If you need help with natural selection and evolution, Mendelian and classical genetics, molecular genetics, inheritance, DNA and chromosomes, reproduction, genetic code or anything else feel free to contact me!
While at Stanford University I took years of public speaking training. I have won two regional prizes in public speaking and speech writing with Jack and Jill of America, Inc., a renown national organization supporting academic achievement.
I've also been instructed by members of the Spokesman Club and learned the art of stirring people to action with speeches. Public Speaking comes natural to me and assists greatly with interview training, which I am also experienced in tutoring.
As a Human Biology major in college, half of my core curriculum was sociology based and my concentration places an emphasis on humanity and human behaviors. I've taken many courses in sociology and received A's.
I'm experienced in the different aspects of this field and am able to help with conceptual understanding or provide guidance on specific assignments. All of my students whom I've tutored in sociology finished their courses with exceptional grades.
Since 2004 I've been an active member of Best Buddies International, a nonprofit organization consisting of volunteers that attempt to create opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. As a Best Buddy member I've spent years mentoring and creating a long lasting bond with special needs students in Southern and Northern California.
With Best Buddies, I've participated with cooking activities, marathon walking and completing homework. I'm accustomed to working with special needs students and enjoy spending time with them. Through my experience I have assisted special needs students with classroom education, schoolwork and life/home skill development. I'm a very caring and considerate person with patience and understanding to be of great assistance.
One of my close family members has special needs and I've assisted with mainstreaming him within the community. This has taught me the empathy and understanding needed to be a great tutor. The mind of a special needs individual is amazing and I enjoy not only teaching them, but learning from them as well.
While at Stanford I worked with the Center for Teaching and Learning and specifically tutored students to improve their study skills and academic habits. As a learning specialist, I worked one-on-one with several students to assist in providing the tools to become a better student and comprehend course material.
After graduating from Stanford, I worked with Cardinal Education (Palo Alto, CA) where I helped several students specifically with study skill improvement. All of my students have improved their grades by at least one letter grade.
I know several strategies in note taking (through reading and lectures), textbook reading, homework strategies and general academic support to be of great help to students.
