I have been in the education field for over 15 years, most recently working as a first and second grade teacher for an international school in China. I am currently a new mom (to a one year old) and really miss teaching.
I love teaching reading and english skills to any age student, and I started my career working in adult literacy and found the same enthusiasm in all my students as they accomplished their goals. I look forward to meeting diverse students and watching them grow and accomplish what they set out to do!
I was an outstanding Advanced Placement student in English as a high school and University student (in America) and taught ESL to business leaders and all ages of students while living in China and accomplished many different student goals, including TOEFL and IELTS/ SAT and GRE preparation, or for specific career goals.

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 have taught for three years at an international school that uses both the California Common Core Standards and an IB Curriculum. Every day when teaching my first and second grade students I ensured that the lessons I planned incorporated Common Core elements, and I used the Common Core text books to base my lessons on.
