As a lifelong educator, youth work has always been a passion of mine. Having taught at the NYC public school system for 2 years and studied in the field of education, teaching and tutoring come as second nature to me. I am well experienced in working with elementary school and middle school students in my experience as a teacher and youth care provider. I am currently an active tutor working with high school students. I am proficient in several subject areas, including but not limited to English, mathematics, history, health and fitness, and kickboxing.
A most important aspect of my teaching approach is to be patient and affective. Being an active listener and sensitive is excellent for building rapport with students as well as being able to address their needs more effectively. Having worked with ESL and special needs students, it is my personal experience that having patience and being sensitive to each child's individual needs is a recipe for learning success. I am also bilingual in English and Cantonese, thus allowing me to effectively communicate with Chinese immigrant parents and students. I pride myself as an excellent communicator, as I have been able to courteously, professionally, and tactfully deal with the general public in a variety of circumstances. I also have current certifications in RTE First-Aid and CPR.
