I excel at taking complicated material and making it easily digestible. Economics, business concepts, finance, statistics or probability, geometry--these are specialties. I'm an advanced Excel and Word user, and work on Mac computers as well. I have extensive experience in photography, and my travel experience and undergrad in political science provide me a strong background in history and religion. I also speak, read, and write Arabic at an intermediate level.
I have 4 years experience in a classroom: 2 overseas, and 2 working with students from all around the world in the US. The first two were as an ESL teacher, and the second two were teaching inferential statistics and probability.
I began my career by earning a Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults--CELTA--which is accredited by Cambridge University. From there, I moved to South Korea, where I honed my teaching skills in front of classes of 40 middle school girls and high school boys. Teaching culture and English language, I was required to develop interesting and engaging ways to deliver what can be dull content.
After my career as an English teacher, I went for my MBA. While there, I served as a teaching assistant for statistics courses. I was highly regarded by professors and students for my clarity in explanation--students would often skip lectures and only come to me. In my MBA program, roughly 2/3 of the students are international, and success with this type of student body--from Indian to Japanese to Portuguese to Brazilian to American--reflect my success at clearly explaining complex content in a simple and concise matter.
To achieve this success I attempt to apply topics to things that are either 1) relevant to my students' lives or 2) at least entertaining in the context of their life. For example, teaching middle school girls in Korea, I utilized songs from the most popular K-pop bands. When teaching their mothers, the topics focused on home life, relationships, and the nuanced differences between the US and Korea.
I appreciate conciseness, and try to apply it to my teaching style. My goal is to have my students understand the concept, not just the process, as quickly as possible, and to draw on a wide breadth of knowledge and experiences to achieve that. I excel at taking complicated material and making it easily digestible. Economics, business concepts, finance, statistics or probability, geometry--these are specialties.

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.
