About Elizabeth

Hello! My name is Elizabeth, and I am a recent graduate with a B.S. in Public Health from UC San Diego. I graduated from a top 100 high school with a weighted 4.1 GPA, and I received a 2300 on the SAT. I received a 229 on the PSAT, and I was a National Merit Finalist. I have 6 years of experience as a tutor, and I am confident in my abilities to tutor other students in subjects they struggle with including math, science, SAT preparation, English, and language. In addition, I have a TEFL certificate and one year of experience as an English teacher abroad in South Korea.

In my 6 years of being a tutor, I have accumulated extensive experience in explaining different concepts of all levels to my peers and students and leading discussions on various topics. I believe that it is the tutor's job to pinpoint exactly what the student's weaknesses are and to provide individually tailored lessons to mend those gaps. Having been tutored and having tutored other people has given me insight on what a good tutor is like and on the contrary, what a bad tutor is like. With these experiences, I am able to help students in figuring out what they need most out of our lessons and how to deliver instruction effectively to achieve this.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I took Honors Algebra 1 in 8th grade, and have since taken honors level math classes through high school including Geometry, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus BC. I received a 5 on the AP Calculus BC exam. I am absolutely confident in teaching Algebra 1.

Algebra 2

I took Honors Algebra 2 in 10th grade, and have since taken honors level math classes through high school including Geometry, Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus BC. I received a 5 on the AP Calculus BC exam. I am absolutely confident in teaching Algebra 2.

Biology

As a Public Health major, I am passionate and confident in my ability to teach biology concepts. I took AP Biology in 11th grade, and received a 5 on the AP Bio exam.

Calculus

Calculus is the most-tutored subject I have taught, and I have up-to-date knowledge and experience on AP and college-level curriculum as a result of continuously teaching it for 6 years. I took AP Calculus BC my senior year of high school, and received a 5 on the AP Calc BC exam as well as a 5 on the AP Calc AB subscore. Additionally, I received an A in Multi-Variable Calculus at UC San Diego as an undergraduate.

Chinese

I was born in America, but I attended Chinese School since I was in preschool until I was in 8th grade. I am fluent in both as a Taiwanese-American, so I have no trouble explaining concepts in English. I can converse well in Chinese, and have learned to read and write as well. Note: I was taught in Traditional Chinese, so that is what I know how to read and write, not Simplified Chinese.

Genetics

As a Public Health major, I am passionate and confident in my abilities to teach concepts in genetics. I first learned about DNA when I was in sixth grade and became so interested I became a science major in college. AP Biology was one of my favorite subjects in high school, and I received a 5 on the AP test. I have also taken Genetics at the college-level at UC San Diego and I received an A in the class. In addition, I was a part-time Research Assistant as an undergraduate so I have practical experience as well.

Prealgebra

I took Pre-Algebra in 7th grade, and have since taken honors level math classes through high school including Geometry, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus BC. I received a 5 on the AP Calculus BC exam. I am absolutely confident in teaching Pre-Algebra.

Precalculus

I took Honors Pre-Calculus in 11th grade, and have taken other honors level math classes through high school including Geometry, Algebra 2, and AP Calculus BC. I received a 5 on the AP Calculus BC exam. I am confident in teaching Pre-Calculus.

Spanish

I started learning Spanish in the 4th grade, and continuously studied it all through elementary, middle, and high school. I took Spanish levels 1-4 and AP Spanish in high school and have never received anything less than an A. I received a 710 on the Spanish SAT II Subject Test as well. My Spanish grammar skills are very strong, and I am able to converse relatively fluently.
