My name is Sydney, and I'm an undergraduate student at the University of Nebraska, Omaha. Though relatively new to private tutoring, I have had several jobs in public tutoring and have discovered a love for working with students one-on-one. Professionally, I've worked at a learning center in Pearl City, HI, and spent nearly a year employed as a para-professional tutor at Wheeler Middle School. I have also taught piano
lessons out of my home for a couple of years.
A little bit about me academically--In 2012 I graduated from Mililani High School in Hawaii as a valedictorian with a 4.1 cumulative GPA. I won the Golden Scholars Outstanding Language
Arts Student Award with first place, and have taken challenging courses (honors and AP) all through high school. I am currently working toward a degree in Linguistics, with a career interest in teaching English
abroad and possibly work in translation/interpreting. I started out in a neuroscience major, so I've done a fair amount of study in neuroscience and related fields. I have experience in a wide variety of subjects, however, a few of my specialties are English/literature
, and middle school math
. Additionally, I would be happy to assist with anything related to linguistics, even though it is not available to list as a subject on this website.
I've always been a very curious soul and passionate about the pursuit of knowledge. Helping others succeed in their own endeavors is such a pleasure that it hardly even feels like a job! I fully believe in fostering a love of learning and catering to individual student needs; there's little more frustrating than having something explained to you repeatedly using the same blanket format. We'll work together to pinpoint exactly where the misunderstandings are, and find a way through it in a way that is memorable and makes sense to you.
If you're in the area and need assistance with anything I have to offer, feel free to contact me. I look forward to working with you!
