Hi, my name is Tommy. I was born in Vietnam in 1983 and moved to the U.S. in 1989. I graduated from the University of Maryland - College Park in May 2007 majoring in family science. I have also studied architecture for 2.5 years and elementary education for half a year. I have a lot of teaching experience throughout my life.
Some of my work experience includes: working at the Board of Childcare in Baltimore to help children of dysfunctional families to re-stabilize their lives, teaching Tae Kwon Do for 1 year, and I worked as a life guard for a few years.
I switched careers to teaching and got my TEFL certificate to teach English in 2008. I moved to Indonesia in August 2008 and have taught English and conversation classes for two years at an English franchise called English First (EF) in south Jakarta. While in Indonesia, I also picked up the language and so I'm now fluent in English, Vietnamese, and Indonesian.
Currently, I'm in graduate school in Goucher College. I started this program in Fall of 2011. It's a 40 credit master's degree program getting me the state certifications I need in order to be an elementary school teacher in the state of Maryland. I have passed all of my Praxis tests so far and will need to take one more Praxis test in the summer. I will be graduating in Fall of this year.
If you think I am a fit to tutor your son or daughter/teen in the subject areas I listed, feel free to send me an inquiry and we can set up an appointment based on my availability. Thank you your time.
