About Kiyan

I am a recent B.A. graduate in Economics and Spanish from Grinnell College and am seeking a tutoring job for the weekends. I am willing to work during weekdays once we have reached an agreement on our first day. When I was a senior in high school, I helped an 8th grade student to improve his grade from a D to a B in Algebra 1. I also helped a 4th grade student to perform at the proficient/advanced level on her STAR tests.

I specialize in tutoring math, English, Chinese, Spanish. I also have experience in ESL as I personally took those courses before. My goal is to help you to understand the class materials. Hence, I will not only provide helps on homework, I will also help you to study and assign extra problems to strengthen your weakness.

I have a sister studying in 9th grade currently, and I have been helping her in Modern World History, Geometry, Spanish 1, and Biology. I am also preparing her for the SAT and strengthening her SAT vocabs. I will be more than happy to apply the same strategies to teach you if applicable.

I can also help you to apply for colleges and provide tips of how to write an outstanding personal statement.

You may cancel your tutoring session with no penalty up to 4 hours before the scheduled session. However, payment is due in full if you cancel within 4 hours of the session. Sessions usually begin on the hour, but I will charge the full amount if I have to wait for 15 min or longer.

I conduct all tutoring at your home or in a public location.

I have offered 60-min to 180-min tutoring sessions before, and I can arrange something similar. You can text/email me questions outside of the meeting time and I will reply ASAP. I hold myself to a high standard. For that reason, I often ask for feedback. I hope we will build a great relationship and help you to succeed. Thank you.

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.

Chinese

I lived in Hong Kong for 12 years. I am a native speaker of Cantonese and Mandarin. I understand the pinyin system. I can teach you how to read, write, speak, and complete Chinese assignments.
