Bio

I have experience working with all kinds of students. My students have been small school children as well as doctoral candidates and corporate supervisors. This familiarity with different learning contexts, paired with my solid educational background, provides me with the expertise and confidence necessary to personalize my approach to meet the needs of the students, even when creative and "non-conventional" methods are necessary.

I have experience working with all kinds of students. My students have been small school children as well as doctoral candidates and corporate supervisors. This familiarity with different learning contexts, paired with my solid educational background, provides me with the expertise and confidence necessary to personalize my approach to meet the needs of the students, even when creative and "non-conventional" methods are necessary.

I have had the privilege of attending some great schools and understand the skills and characteristics necessary to excel in them. Therefore, I am able to comfortably assist gifted students with their studies, as well as suggest areas for improvement in their education and college preparation.

I have also worked with students struggling with their studies, and can help them with basic study skills, STAR test preparation, self-discipline and motivation.

As a doctorate student, I had the opportunity to co-teach a graduate course and I supervised three undergraduates in their research seminar. I have tutored many university students and have been thrilled to see them excell in their courses as a result.

One of my areas of specialty is aiding students from overseas (mostly from China, Korea, Saudi Arabia and Italy) and I am an expert ESL educator. I am fluent, or nearly fluent, in Mandarin, French and Italian.

Another area of specialty is standardized test preparation, especially the SAT and ACT (the reading and writing sections only). I am proud to say that I can earn perfect scores in those English sections, and I know the most effective tricks and strategies taught by the best prep-centers, such as Elite. My students usually see a 15-30% improvement in their scores (after completing my intensive program, which usually lasts two months).

I ensure that each lesson is geared toward clear goals and update students and parents regularly with the progress toward those goals. All of my students therefore see improvement.

I am familiar with state and national standards and the curricula in the Irvine district, Fairmont and Crean. I am also familiar with the tests used by the district for GATE placement, such as the OLSAT.

Literature

I have helped students with their literature study and essays throughout my teaching/tutoring career. I've only deeply focused on it for the past four years--it's been a lot of fun! I almost forgot how much I love James Joyce and it's been a delightful study to relearn the art of creative narrative. I'm so glad novel reading has come back into my life as a result.
