About Esther

I have been an educator for quite some time, specifically in Washington State, Shanghai, China and the Los Angeles area. I helped students from the K-12 level in areas of English and Math as well as working professionals in Business English and Conversation. My most recent tutoring experience has been mainly in the ISEE, SAT and ACT tests. I enjoy tutoring students from all different cultures and backgrounds. Strategy, time management and improvement in knowledge and scores is what I would love to help you with.

My experience working in China for more than 4 years has allowed me to help over 300+ students and working professionals.

From 2014 to present day, I have helped over 50 students prepare for the Lower, Middle or Upper Level test for the ISEE. I was very proud to see 5 of my students get into the top 3 private schools in the Los Angeles area and for many of students to improve in areas that they once thought they could not master. I am here to help your student improve!

Please contact me with anything that you would like to learn and improve- whether it is a particular area of study, mastery of skills, or test preparation. Thank you.

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've tutored algebra 1 privately with students in the Los Angeles area. I taught algebra as a substitute teacher at an international school in Shanghai.

Common Core

In the last 2-3 years, I've seen a lot of movement in the public schools in the San Gabriel Valley. Many parents have come to me and asked me what is Common Core and I've attended a meeting on Common Core for the San Marino School District. Even though Common Core is still relatively new in Los Angeles or the West Coast. There is a lot of information online of Common Core's presence in East Coast public education schools.

I was able to conduct one seminar on Common Core to parents and staff back in February 2015.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught k-12 students as a substitute teacher at an international school in Shanghai for two years. I have tutored elementary students from private and public schools in reading, writing, spelling, math and science in Los Angeles for the last four years. My main accomplishment was helping a student improve her reading and reading comprehension through exercises and practice.

Elementary Math

I have taught K-12 math for more than 10 years from number operations, algebra, geometry up to statistics. I help students improve their grades, confidence and skill level.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught ESL in Shanghai, Seattle and Los Angeles for the past 7+ years. I was able to train young students up to the adult level in ESL as well.

Finance

I've consulted finance companies in Shanghai and I avidly read the news concerning financial markets.

Geometry

I have tutored summer classes in geometry and 1:1 for more than 7+ years in Los Angeles, Seattle and Shanghai.

ISEE

I have helped over 30 students prepare for the Lower Level, Middle Level or Upper Level Tests from 2014-Present. The Verbal Reasoning (VR) was the biggest challenge for most of the students I've tutored was the Verbal Reasoning section of the ISEE. Many students did not want to take the time to learn the root words or the vocabulary. The math sections and RC were relatively easy given the test taking strategies that I have given each student.

Prealgebra

I've taught pre-algebra, algebra and geometry to 4-10th graders for test preparation and subject levels in a group setting and 1:1 based on the group or individual needs.

Project Management

Worked on Agile/Scrum projects for industries in IT. I am well versed Agile methods and able to convey the difference from waterfall and how companies can benefit from Agile methodology.

I have all the materials for Project Management and took a Agile/Scrum class back in Feb/March of 2013.

Reading

I helped many students at the elementary level improve their reading comprehension both in China and the United States.
