About Kona

My experience tutoring formerly began during my freshman year of High School, where I helped peer edit other students' papers through an English club. From there a passion to collaborate with as well as help others grew. I worked part time through my junior year of school as a general tutor, helping with any and all subjects as well as through my senior year, where I narrowed my focus to helping students in Speech and Debate excel in written and verbal argumentation.

My formal experience ended here, but every semester I spent at UC Berkeley studying Political Economics over the past four years was packed with informal tutoring: weekly collaborations on projects inevitably turning into fierce discussions about topics ranging from the reasoning behind the set of course material offered to the imperfections in certain topics of teaching to how we could better equip ourselves to learn. The underlying theme in all of these discussions became a deep and genuine interest for the world around us and a passion to understand it. A sentiment that I hope to foster in each student I get the opportunity to work with.
