About Tyler

Hello, my name is Tyler, and I am currently a Senior student at UCLA, majoring in Business Economics and minoring in Chinese language. I am currently looking for a job as a tutor. I have experience tutoring, working for 3 years one on one volunteering with local schools, and currently working part time with a web platform that teaches Chinese children English and American culture. I love tutoring, as it is a chance to really work with students one on one and help facilitate their learning to a higher level. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing that "ah-hah" moment on a student's face as they start to finally understand the material due to your help. I am proficient in a variety of subjects, including all English and Math subjects taught in elementary school to high school, as well as advanced level economics, basic to intermediate Spanish, basic to advanced mandarin Chinese, and ESL studies.

Besides being a student, I have many passions outside the realms of academia. I absolutely love photography, for example. It is one of my favorite art forms, and I have been practicing it avidly since high school, where I attended a magnet school that focused solely on intensive art studies that coincided with our regular high school studies. Thus, I am also very proficient in photography, photo manipulation, and photo editing using Adobe Photoshop.

Another passion of mine is learning new languages and discovering new cultures. I am always fascinated and amazed when I learn about the workings of a new language. I have taught myself Russian, and am beginning to teach myself Cantonese to go hand in hand with my university-based Mandarin studies. With all this fascination with foreign cultures and of Chinese in particular, I will be studying abroad in China for a year. It is for this reason that I am specifically looking for employment, so that I may make enough money to do so.

QUALIFICATIONS;

I have tutored for middle school students before at my local library, and thus am very familiar with how to create a lesson plan, and how to effectively communicate information necessary for student comprehension. My students generally performed very strongly and improved their abilities by at least a few percentage points per exam.

My approach to tutoring is listening to the students' needs and figuring out exactly what they are struggling with and finding ways to make these problem areas more sensible to the students. And for the times that students don't know exactly what they are struggling with, my next goal is to go over information in a way that ties it all together so that students can follow the information in a very logical way that adds relevancy to their previous knowledge.
