About Mahua

I have years of experience with tutoring, teaching, and training. After working as a teacher in elementary school for 7 years, I also worked as a volunteer tutor in after school for kids from K-5 in all subjects in elementary schools. I hold a Bachelors Degree in Political science with a Masters Degree in International Relations. I did a Certification on Fundamentals of Computer Science from Phoenix College, Arizona and have credentials in reading, writing and math. Having years of experience, I provide after school tutoring and guidance at our residence (Foster City) for children from Kindergarten - 5th grade. Homework assistance, reading, writing, math, additional art and craft fun, extra educational work on all subjects and free choice activities like board games, art projects, puzzles and reading are provided to the kids.

My experience as a tutor is extensive. I have a way of taking difficult material and explaining it clearly. I am hardworking and believe in doing my best. My teaching style is encouraging and creative. I use tactile teaching methods appropriate in math lessons, which I have found especially effective in working with younger students. In reading, writing, and spelling I come up with games and activities to keep students engaged and improve retention. I am well organized, well versed in lesson planning and implementing what is planned. My special interests are in art, crafts and music. I am highly skilled in teaching techniques for all elementary school subjects, and have extraordinary patience and creativity for teaching learners. All of my curriculum is aligned with California Common Core Standards.

When I first work with a student I assess their abilities both in terms of strengths and areas of needed improvement, and then create individual lessons for them as a guide to help them on their path towards success. If it is necessary I will collaborate with the student’s teacher(s) work too. I have tutored several students in the K-5 demographic and I am familiar with the pedagogical methods that can be used to help younger students. I also worked as a an academic subject instructor in private, small groups and later as an independent tutor.

As your tutor I welcome you to a quiet and positive learning environment where all my teaching strategy and learning activity I organize will reinforce your desire to learn and motivate you to study. I create this positive environment on the basis of respect, responsibility and the reassurance that you will succeed.

Thanks for your time and interest. I look forward to working with your child and helping them reach their full potential. Please contact me with any questions or concerns.

Sincerely Yours,
Mahua S.

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.

Common Core

I have experience in teaching grades K-5. Having taught in all subjects, I have firsthand knowledge of the Common Core curriculum. In addition, I am tutoring students on a daily basis in Common Core math, and I use the same strategies and materials that they are using in school.

I have taught every grade level from K-5 and enjoy teaching all subjects in common core standards. When I am teaching a new concept or reviewing a concept the student has learned in school, I use a lot of strategies and show a lot of examples so the children understand the process of how to solve a problem. I also like to use a lot of learning games within my tutoring sessions to ensure the students have mastered the concept.

I have worked as a tutor, a volunteer substitute teacher in elementary schools for many years. I have taught phonics, elementary math, social studies, reading, writing and science to hundreds of children.

I believe that building math skills can be fun and I offer years of experience, skills and materials to all children wherever he or she needs. I use my utmost best to evaluate each child and upgrade them in all subjects needed.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a Bachelors Degree in Political science and a Masters Degree in International Relations with a Certification on Fundamentals of Computer Science from Phoenix College, Arizona and have credentials in reading, writing and math.

I am qualified to tutor Elementary (K-6th) because of experience tutoring children in this age range. I worked with this age group at Elementary Schools in Foster City, CA. I tutor children each day after-school (from 2:30-6 PM). I worked with children in a variety of grades and helped them learn mathematics, reading and writing skills, science, and more.

My methods included asking questions in order to understand them and then teach them the concept of learning. My experience tutoring children in multiple subjects and at these grade levels qualifies me to tutor Elementary (K-6th). I have tutored several students in the K-5 demographic and I am familiar with the pedagogical methods that can be used to help younger students. I also worked as a an academic subject instructor in private, small groups and later as an independent tutor.

Handwriting

Handwriting is one of the subjects I have successfully taught as a volunteer after school tutor in the elementary grades. I grew up at a time when properly-executed, fine handwriting was emphasized in the schools, and I have subsequently demonstrated my ability to assist youngsters in developing their own handwriting skills, both print and cursive. I have ability of applying specialized techniques in the handwriting challenges. I also provide worksheets that help children develop proper handwriting technique.

As part of my learning program, I learnt proper techniques of handwriting, so I know how to teach children to print, as well as cursive. I am a skilled teacher with a master's degree and years of teaching experience.

I love teaching handwriting, both creative and analytical. Everyone should learn to write "clearly". I taught writing to all school kids for a long time now and I continue to love working with kids of all ages.

Study Skills

I have long worked with students with particular focus on study skills. Skill development and strategies of study are determined by discipline and the performance of learning.

I want to offer my services to help with study skills. I am a skilled teacher in math, English and science, with years of experience in all areas. I have often helped students with study skills.

I have been tutoring for many years, and I have taught students how to organize their work, prioritize their homework and set up a schedule for studying for tests. I have taught in grades K-5 and I have had much success in teaching study skills to the students I have worked with.

I am qualified to tutor students in study skills because I have helped numerous students significantly improve their study techniques. My tutoring methods emphasize effective study habits by making a thorough plan about what needs to be covered, in what order, and then execute the plan. I have helped students become more disciplined, systematic, and focused in their study skills. I follow up with students between tutoring sessions to check their progress. I make a plan and review its execution to help students improve their study habits and achieve better outcomes.
