About Helina

Hello! I am a recent graduate of Emory University with honors in Anthropology where I earned a dual Bachelors of Science degree in Anthropology and Human Biology, with a minor in Chinese Studies. My love for teaching and tutoring comes from my innate leadership experience as the oldest of four children where I was often responsible for tutoring my younger siblings in a wide variety of school subjects and guiding them to discover their passions. One of my favorite things about tutoring is helping to instill not just a love for learning in my students, but also helping them reach their potential and realizing their own strengths.

As an aspiring pediatric dentist, I have immersed myself from a very young age in many advanced and rigorous science courses both at the high school and college levels. I have also served as a summer instructor with the Emory University School of Medicine Summer Science Academy for rising 9th and 10th graders where I specialized in teaching anatomy, anthropology/sociology, chemistry, biology, and nutrition lectures. My fun, yet academically-challenging lectures proved to be a favorite among students, fellow instructors, and supervisors alike.

I began learning Mandarin Chinese as a freshman in high school where I developed a strong competency both in oral and written Mandarin, as well as Chinese history and culture. When college came along, I placed into an upper-level Chinese course my freshman year which enabled me to forgo some course requirements in order to declare a minor in Chinese Studies early on.

I did Speech & Debate team and Model UN while in high school which granted me several opportunities to be comfortable speaking in front of large audiences. Additionally, I served as a Campus Tour Guide with the Office of Admissions, and was elected onto several executive boards for various campus organizations such as the African Students Association, Office of Multicultural Programs & Services, and Office of Student Leadership & Service, that allowed me to be very comfortable when public speaking.

I look forward to working with you in honing in and perfecting on the strengths I know you already have! I am generally available for tutoring on weeknights (after 6pm) and from 10am - 6pm on the weekends. I am more than willing to travel to a location set by the students, or meet them online. My base rate is $30 for in-person lessons and $20 for online.

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.

Chinese

I graduated from Emory University with a minor in Chinese Studies. I have been studying Mandarin Chinese since I was a freshman in high school and when I got to college, I placed into an upper level language course such that I could declare and complete my minor much sooner. In addition to language competency, my studies allowed me the opportunity to learn a lot about Chinese history, culture, society, etc.

Public Speaking

I have always been actively involved in my school communities and took on many leadership roles that allowed me the opportunities to become comfortable speaking in front of large groups. My biggest commitment in college was as a Campus Tour Guide with the Office of Admissions at Emory where every week, I was responsible for guiding a tour of prospective students and families (average tour group was around 15 people) around campus. Additionally, my involvement on many executive boards of student-run organizations provided me with a lot of public speaking opportunities not only within our own organization, but with other student groups on campus, and even top administration and faculty as well.
