Hello! I am currently finishing my senior year at Boston College with a major in Communication and a double minor in Chinese and Spanish. I am fluent in English, Spanish, Cantonese, and Mandarin.

I am extremely comfortable with tutoring students of all ages and I ask you to not be shy! I love teaching and tutoring and I have been doing so for 5 years. Two summers ago, I was hired as a summer English teacher in China and last summer, I studied abroad in Madrid, taking all my courses in Spanish and completely immersing myself in the culture. I am particularly knowledgeable in the aforementioned languages and the levels of math that I have listed. I am also a certified piano teacher and experienced with music theory.

I believe that I am both a qualified and passionate instructor. I understand that each student learns in a different manner and I cater to those needs. I always get to know my students in order to be able to create the most effective teaching methods in a welcoming learning environment.

Please don't hesitate to send me a message regarding anything related to a potential tutoring relationship. I would be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have!

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.

Study Skills

I am an extremely well-organized individual, especially regarding academics. I understand the difficulty some students may have with time management, but it is something that I have learned to master since high school and I am confident that I can teach someone how to balance their schedules, such as homework with extracurricular activities.

In addition to time management, appropriate study skills is essential to improving academic performance. I can assist students with managing their workload, understanding what is the most important material to focus on, and provide study habits and study tips that will guide them as they prepare for their next assessment. Planning is a key element of excellent study skills, and my students will definitely learn to use that to their advantage.

Excellent first session. — Since this is my first experience in hiring a tutor for my child, I was uncertain what to do or what to expect. After the first session, I am thrilled with the outcome.
