I am new to the Seattle area and WyzAnt, and am excited to start tutoring here! I love both learning and teaching and my experiences have given me insight into the best ways to do both. I know every student is different and I know it can be challenging to find effective techniques. So, when I tutor, my goal is not only to teach the subject, but also help students find the learning methods that work for them.

I have ten years of private and volunteer tutoring experience, over four years of formal teaching experience and am certified as an ESL teacher. I enjoy teaching all ages and a wide variety of subjects, though reading and writing are my favorites. For me, teaching is not only a job, but is personally rewarding leading my students to academic and personal success. I keep classes relevant and challenging while monitoring progress to sustain motivation.

I ask for feedback often and use it to make sure the lessons are perfect for my students. Also, I will not bill you for a lesson if a student or parent is not 100 percent satisfied. Contact me and I'll set up a consultation lesson to help you or your child take the first step to seeing the improvement you've been looking for!

Elementary (K-6th)

I taught K-6 ESL students in Korea for the past 2.5 years. We used a content-based curriculum - thus I have experience with all the subjects. I also volunteered as a tutor for elementary students when I was in high school and university.

Elementary Math

Each student "gets" math with a different approach. I believe it's important to explain and demonstrate concepts in multiple ways in order to find the right approach. I love math and love breaking it down and empowering students by guiding them and showing them that they CAN do math.

ESL/ESOL

I received my teaching certificate through the University of Cambridge and worked in public and private institutions in Korea for five years. I teach conversation, general English, business English, and children's English (including Phonics).

Phonics

I taught phonics to ESL students, integrating natural and functional language, as well to make an immersion environment. I am knowledgeable in regards to both phonetic and sight-word methodologies. I am familiar with many different phonetic approaches, including vowel-first approaches, related sound approaches, blends, digraphs, etc.

Reading

Reading is the core of learning and I believe it's key to find texts that students are interested in and then build from there. I have experience working with students of all ages and helping them increase their motivation, comprehension and enjoyment of reading.

Spanish

My background in language teaching includes 5 years of international experience, an ESL teaching certificate, and passing scores on all sections (reading, writing, speaking, listening) of the national Spanish (PRAXIS) teaching exam.

Study Skills

In my previous position, I made individualized study plans for my students. In order to do this I researched many aspects (time frame, memorization and analysis, learning style, subject matter) and used many different kinds of study techniques, including flash cards, reading/writing application, oral explanation, etc.
