About Mina

Greetings! Thanks for stopping by my profile.

I am currently enrolled at San Diego State University and will be working on my Master of Social Work degree.

I have been tutoring and teaching since I was 14 years old. I love to teach — there is simply nothing more rewarding than the "Ohhhh! I get it!" after a long session of working through problems.

Each child has their own learning style. Successful tutoring takes advantage of the one-on-one setting to really understand and hone that style. And guess what? It's okay to laugh a little while you're doing your homework.

I have extensive experience in writing and reading. I worked as a journalist and currently do freelance writing and editing.

I also have experience tutoring up to a high sophomore level in mathematics.

I am proficient in Spanish, and love teaching ESL students.

Math is an intrinsic capability. The human brain is CRAVING to understand math. Being a visual person, I love incorporating visuals in math to find a way to present a mathematical concept to a student that the student will be able to comprehend.

I've been writing all my life! In high school, I was the only one who loved sentence diagramming. I am currently a freelance editor and 100% of the people whose essays I've edited for applications have been accepted to their top choice programs (including myself!). I've taken the SAT, the GRE and the LSAT. I understand that reading comprehension is a doozy, but it's all about "hacking" the clues that every writer presents in their work. As a writer myself, I know my way around those convoluted passages.

Don't be afraid to ask me questions! I'm happy to speak more about my qualifications and approach to tutoring. Your child's education is no small matter.
