University of California, Berkeley (Linguistics, Biology)
I'm a recent UC Berkeley graduate with a BA in both linguistics and integrative biology. I'm now in a master's degree program to become a speech-language pathologist. At Berkeley I was part of a health education program where I was able to teach health courses in 9th grade classrooms. In training I was equipped with teaching skills to help facilitate a student's learning and focus his/her attention. I also speak fairly articulately so my speech is clear, and I can accommodate to the level of language complexity that is required for a student to understand what I am explaining or teaching.
As a linguistics major I took phonetics & phonology, syntax & semantics, and a year of American Sign Language, to name a few courses. I can help students with their reading and writing, especially if they have trouble articulating certain sounds or if they have trouble with grammar. Besides ASL, I can also speak Teochew (native) and a basic level of Spanish (four years in high school).
As an integrative biology major I took courses in general biology, ecology, and genetics. I also took honors biology and AP biology in high school. I can tutor lower levels of general science, but I am most familiar with biology.
Back in high school I tutored mostly algebra I and geometry, but I am also comfortable with lower levels of math. With my knowledge and previous teaching and tutoring experiences, I believe I can make a great tutor. I'm patient and willing to help students succeed to the best of my ability. I look forward to helping you learn! Hello!

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 a B.A. in Integrative Biology (IB) from UC Berkeley. Bits of genetics have been reinforced in many of the IB classes I have taken. I have also taken a whole course on Genetics and received an A.
I have great penmanship (both print and cursive) and have been complimented many times in the past on my handwriting. I have also taken a calligraphy class in the past. I can work with students on spacing, leveling, and individual letters so that their handwriting is as clear as possible.
I have a B.A. in Linguistics from UC Berkeley, and I have taken a course in Phonetics & Phonology. I have knowledge of the individual phonemes of which words are comprised, and I feel I can translate this in a way to help individuals enunciate and improve their reading and speaking abilities. I am also going into speech-language pathology, so using phonics is a big part of that field.
Graduating from one of the top universities in the world was not easy. Studying is necessary to do well in Berkeley. I have tried many different study methods, and I have many tips on how to utilize and manage time with a busy schedule.
