Stanford University (American Studies)
I am an aspiring teacher, recently graduated from Stanford University (B.A. in American studies), qualified to tutor elementary age students in math and language arts, as well as college-bound teens in English and History.
(K-5) I have a half a year of experience as a youth educator in after school programs where I work daily with students of all different learning styles and personalities. In one-on-one tutoring, I can guide students in overcoming specific academic challenges and prepare them for weekly testing on core topics. I am familiar with new teaching approaches and strategies in step with district anticipation of the end-of-year Common Core examinations. I place emphasis on long-term development of good study habits, concentration, independent reasoning and understanding of foundational concepts. Personally, I am calm and patient, caring and playful, but also focused and demanding.
(College-bound teens) I am a great resource to maturing writers and thinkers in middle school and high school. Whether studying history or literature I can help students to: review course material and concepts, read carefully and effectively, deepen literary analysis, tackle the challenges of essay composition, and write with an individual voice and style. I also can assist students in their preparation for AP/SAT/ACT testing and advise them on the college application process.
More about me: I have a special passion for the humanities and arts. I want to encourage all pupils to embrace storytelling--to see, feel, laugh and take morals from words and illustrations--and to create and express themselves through drawing, music, dance, speech and writing. I also enjoy presenting kids with problem-solving challenges and puzzles, such engineering vehicles and structures, sudoku, code-breaking, and especially chess.
My college coursework covered a variety of subjects--history, political science/government, literature, and film--all studies which satisfied my interest in American cultural history. In my free time I like reading novels, following politics, playing guitar, tossing the baseball, and goofing off with my siblings, ages seven and nine.

Rate negotiable depending on service provided.
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.
I am a graduated humanities student from Stanford University who has experience working with young learners. I have volunteered as a tutor and activity supervisor at the Boys and Girls club, which serves primarily elementary age students. Also, I work closely with two siblings, a first-grader and a third-grader, on all aspects of their primary education. I strive to guide children through their work by emphasizing reasoning, helping them to grasp foundational concepts, and building confidence through independent thinking.
