I'm a business professional working in marketing; however, I am an entrepreneur at heart. Because I have a broad range of experience in different sectors and roles, I am able to relate to students on many different topics. I hold a B.S. in Management with a concentration in Operations Science from Worcester Polytechnic Institute. I have many years of experience as a private tutor for grade school and high school especially in test preparation. A majority of my early tutoring years were spent helping students get the highest scores possible on the SAT, ACT and other standardized tests.

My family emigrated from Cambodia to America in 1991. This meant that I had to learn English long after most of my peers. During my childhood, I spent much of my time reading out loud to practice speech and diction. This practice led to a love of books. I am an avid reader. Most of the topics that I read relate to either business or science fiction; however, I enjoy all the other categories as well. I am now well-versed in all English topics. I have tutored all aspects of English such as, vocabulary, literature, writing, diction and grammar.

I have a love for teaching and enjoy helping others achieve their academic goals. My teaching style is fluid and patient. I begin all my assignments by assessing the student and creating a lesson plan that most effectively aids in this advancement.

ACT Math

I have tutored students in all forms of math and test prep. Taking the ACT is as much knowing the test as it is knowing the material. By preparing for both, I give the student the strategy and knowledge to master this test.

AFOQT

The AFOQT consists of 12 sections and lasts 3 1/2 hours long. It is a challenging test that you need to prepare for. I have taken and scored well in all sections of the test and can help you achieve the same. My AFOQT scores are:

Pilot: 93
Nav: 94
Acad: 97
Verbal: 95
Quant: 94

Algebra 1

Coming from a technical school, math has always been a strong front for me. I enjoy challenging my students and helping them learn. My approach is very personalized and helps each student understand the subject in their own way.

Algebra 2

I attended an engineering school and have had math up to Calculus 4, Linear Algebra and similar level maths. Some students absorb the material faster than others. Every student can understand it well if the material is presented in a way that they can relate to.

ASVAB

I have experience tutoring students in all types of test prep. In addition, I have personally taken the AFOQT and done well in it. I look forward to helping you achieve your target score.

Chess

A lot of my students begin playing chess without the correct thought process. They scour the board looking for tactics. Should I attack here or here? When they can't find any they seem lost.

I have played for over 8 years and have developed a well planned approach to teaching chess. My approach is both positional and tactical.

I have played chess competitively in the past and toured the country to play in the tournaments. I have several first place finishes before starting a career in business.

Economics

The concepts of economics maybe presented in a way that is more complicated than it actually is. Some of the material must be memorized, but for the most part, a general understanding of the reasoning behind the actions will be of greater utility. I have personally taken micro and macro economics on the university level. I hold a bachelor's of science degree in management with a concentration on operation's sciences.

English

Your brain has an unbelievable capability for learning languages. For example, if you see an unfamiliar word, you might not consciously know the meaning. However, you may have an intuition about the connotation of the word.

English skills can be improved through reading, writing, speaking and listening. I have practiced all these traits personally. As a non-native English speaker, I have personally invested a lot of time to improve my own skills while I was a child. I have scored and continue to score highly (99th percentile) on all English Standardized tests, such as, the SAT, GMAT and other tests. In addition to my high score, I hold a Bachelor's of Science from WPI.

ESL/ESOL

English is best taught by immersion without translating in your mind. I have tutored ESL to many students from a multitude of countries. I, myself, am a non-native English speaker. I have an engaging and fun teaching style that is both fluid and patient.

GED

The GED tests a variety of skills and knowledge that a High School graduate should have learned. I have taught all subjects of the GED, as well as, helped students prepare for it at a nonprofit. I hold a Bachelor's of Science and have over 8 years of tutoring experience. I am confident that I can help you achieve your goals.

Geometry

Geometry is a subject that is beautiful, simple and complex all at the same time. To fully understand it, the material must be presented in a way that keeps the student engaged and allows them to relate to it.

I find that many students suffer from the inability to go beyond the numbers and visualize it in a manner that relates to the real world. By breaking the topic down into digestible bits, students will better comprehend Geometry.

GMAT

The GMAT is a unique test because of its adaptive nature. The more questions you answer correctly, the harder the next questions become. Preparing for the GMAT requires developing the skills needed to effectively understand and answer each question.

Grammar

Reading often helps to improve one's grammar. I often teach grammar in the context of the SAT, GMAT or other standardized test. You don't need to know all the rules, but I will teach you the rules needed to excel at your goals. I have over eight years of tutoring experience and carry a bachelor's degree.

GRE

It is best to break this test into its three section and work in a very methodical fashion. I always being by assessing the student's general level of competence in each section. We will cover general overview of the entire test and strategies as well as fine-tuning their knowledge of the material.

I have experience in applying for graduate school as well as taking the GMAT. While the GMAT and GRE differ, I have studied both and can effective teach either. I bring with me over eight years of tutoring experience and strong educational background.

Literature

I am an avid reader. This has given me the practice and skills needed to analyze different aspects of literature. I enjoy the sci-fi genre, such as, Children of the Mind.

My method of teaching depends on what the final goal is. I have many years of experience preparing students of the SAT and other standardized tests. However, I strive to keep my teaching style fluid and relevant.

Nursing

The information needed to become a good nurse requires you to memorize some knowledge, understand others and gain experience through practical knowledge. I have a strong foundation in teaching study skills and subject matter material as a private tutor. As a college graduate and private tutor, I can help you prepare for all phases of your coursework.

Physical Science

Physical science covers a wide array of topics. Having an engineering background as a graduate of WPI, I have a strong foundation in the math and science. My tutoring style is often fluid and dependent on the student and their goals. I strive to help the student not only do well in their coursework but understand the material in a meaningful way.

Prealgebra

Math requires understanding and can be improved through practice. You can not learn math from simple rote memorization. I have tutored many students in all subjects of math. I hold a Bachelor's degree from an engineering school and use math daily.

Precalculus

Precalculus is best learned by practice. However, you can't practice if you don't understand the material. My job as a tutor is to help you understand the material so that you have the tools to solve the problems.

I have a strong foundation in math. My degree was from a technical university, which required a lot of math courses. I have taken many math courses, such as, Calculus IV, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations and higher.

Proofreading

Not many students know all the grammatical rules; however, most would have a feeling if a sentence is incorrect. The skills in proofreading can be developed in many ways. By leveraging my own education as a graduate of WPI with a bachelor's of science and my experience as a non-native speaker, I engage and teach students in a meaningful and creative manner.

PSAT

The PSAT not only helps you prepare for the SAT but it qualifies you for scholarships. How you do in the PSAT will tell you what areas you need to work on. I have experience tutoring both test strategies as well as all the information needed to master the test.

Reading

Reading is crucial in academic success.

I was not born in America and English was not my first language. This forced me to work harder than my peers to become proficient in English. All my years of practice as a child has paid off. I continually score high on all standardized test both in English and math. In addition, I am very educated and hold a bachelor's of science degree from WPI.

My experiences teaching others and myself allow me to relate with students of different background. Whether English is a native language or not, I can relate to either student. I continue to be an avid reader and encourage my students to be one as well.

SAT Math

Preparation and study are keys to successfully mastering the SAT. I have helped many students achieve 200 point gains and have had many students obtain perfect scores. I enjoy teaching this subject and can help anyone improve.

SAT Reading

Practice reading all different types of subjects. A book that is sci-fi is not written in the same manner as a textbook. I am an avid reader and encourage all my students to read.

I have over 8 years of tutoring experience in this subject. In addition, I have personally scored in the 99th percentile on this section of the SAT.

I teach my students to recognize the best strategies to use to master this section of the SAT.

SAT Writing

Reading and writing go hand and hand; however, you must learn all the different elements that the SAT is testing. To score well, you must know the test and strategies to master it. I have had over 8 years of experience teaching this subject. We will go over the information needed for this section as well as practice with writing.

Study Skills

To study well, you must know how to take notes, manage your time, stay organized, plan and effectively read. There are many other facets to studying but it all begins with motivation and the will to study.

My qualifications include a Bachelor's of Science from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, 8 years of tutoring experience and helping many students achieve their goals.

I look forward to first assessing what your current study skills are and then helping you improve upon them. Whether it is taking better notes or tricks to remember easier, I have knowledge and experience with it all.

TOEFL

During high school, I was given the opportunity to take the TOEFL, because I emigrated to America when I was five. However, I choose to study harder rather than taking the easy way out. I began speaking English with an accent. I had a tough time learning it because my family spoke another language at home. Now, I speak it fluently with no accent. I have taken the SAT and scored in the 99th percentile on the English portion of the test.

My experience and background allows me to empathize with the student. I understand what it is like to learn a new language and how hard it can be. Listening, reading, and writing will all come with practice and guidance.

Vocabulary

Words can be learned in many ways. Through reading, memorization, or association with roots. Each method has its plus and minus but can be enjoyable if taught in an engaging manner. Having taken and scored highly on the English sections of the SAT, GMAT and other vocabulary sections of standardized tests, I am well versed in both study and teaching methods for vocabulary.

Writing

Writing on the SAT differs from writing on the GMAT. Whatever the circumstance, I am able to bring my wealth of experience as a tutor to help you. I have written many papers as a college graduate with a bachelor's degree. I have also read and corrected many papers in my years of tutoring experience.
