Bio

Hello! My name is Theresa, and I graduated cum laude from Georgetown University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service, where I majored in international politics and Asian studies. I am now back at Georgetown getting a master's degree U.S. national security policy. I spent the year after undergrad teaching seventh grade science and eighth grade study skills at a middle school (students typically 12-14 y/o) in Houston, Texas, with class sizes ranging between 15 and 28 students....

Hello! My name is Theresa, and I graduated cum laude from Georgetown University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service, where I majored in international politics and Asian studies. I am now back at Georgetown getting a master's degree U.S. national security policy. I spent the year after undergrad teaching seventh grade science and eighth grade study skills at a middle school (students typically 12-14 y/o) in Houston, Texas, with class sizes ranging between 15 and 28 students. I attended professional development sessions to learn how to differentiate material for students with different learning preferences, and transition between working with the whole class and focusing on a small, targeted group of students. I fully understand and appreciate the importance of engaging students through means most interesting and conducive to their learning. I am not only experienced in distilling and conveying the most essential information in a condensed time frame, but also comfortable with adjusting lesson plans on the spot if students are not receptive to the original content. My methods frequently yielded desired results: I was ranked first in the seventh grade science team for student performance on year-end formal assessments.

In addition to teaching science, I volunteered to tutor math (pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry) after school. We covered topics ranging from fractions and percentages to areas and volumes. I worked mostly in small groups between 1 and 5 students. My experience living in Taiwan for a decade provides me with a different and complementary perspective on mathematical education that expands my toolkit when engaging with students struggling to understand the concepts. After several months, students who came to me with failing grades were able to achieve academic success and pass the year-end exam with above average results.

I always appreciate knowing how my students learn best and am open to materials/sources you would find most effective. I look forward to the opportunity to help you achieve your goal. Please feel free to reach out with any questions!
