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.

Chess

I have been playing chess for over 15 years. I have played in high school clubs, competitively online, and even learned how to play Chinese Chess to further my game. I can review basic strategy and common gambits. Additionally, I can help students play to their own style.

Chinese

I have been studying Chinese since 1998 and have spent years living there as a teacher and as a student. Most importantly I know how hard Chinese can be to study as a second language. Therefore, I will be able to setup you up for maximum achievement with a few headaches a possible.

Martial Arts

I've been a martial arts practitioner since 2001. I have been instructing fitness and self defense since 2010. I have skills in sanda/san shou, black belt, and TKD 2nd degree black belt. Additionally, I have skills in other forms, such as hapkindo, koryo gumdo, judo, and other Chinese forms.

Public Speaking

I have been an officer in several organizations since high school. During high school I was the VP of our Asia Student Association and had to formulate speeches for our high school events. In college as part of my social fellowship I organized events and spoke to large groups of people. Afterwards as a Peace Officer I further honed my skills in speaking to people professionally in the public and with presence. Currently as a high school teacher I speak to large groups daily as I lead them to their goals.

Reading

I have worked as a high school teacher for over five years. During that time I have realized the great utility of reading and writing. Sadly, there generally exists a chasm between the needs of the students and their ability. As such I have developed methods to help students delved deeper into reading and writing to their future benefit.

Study Skills

I have been teaching for the past five years and have participated as a mentor as well. I told students test-taking methods and helped them prepare for their exams. They learned the value of flash cards, slow moderate review, and group work. All students who regularly attended obtained dramatic improvement.
