About Flora

I have taken advanced placement psychology and understand how to teach - not every student learns the same and I can help a student faster by being thoughtful, personable, and creative in ways of teaching. I grew up speaking English and Chinese and have worked with numerous youth groups and students in different environments. I was a teacher's assistant for an entire school year teaching students Chinese and actually was in charge of teaching multiple groups of students at once. I am capable of teaching Chinese because I have also taken it from middle school to high school. I have gone through the curriculum to understand the difficulty of learning the language and know how to adapt to people who are unfamiliar with Chinese.

I am also capable of teaching a small amount of grammar patterns because I was tutored for over a year in English in preparation for the SAT and ACT. On the ACT writing portion, I scored a 33 out of 36.
As a freshman in college, I may seem a bit young as a tutor but I have also just gone through high school, so I still remember and understand what students go through and how difficult learning a new subject can be. I can also be more personable and understanding of people in my generation.

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.

ACT English

I scored a 33 out of 36 on the ACT English portion and have been tutored for a year in grammar.

Chinese

I grew up speaking Chinese and English because my parents are from China - I have a Chinese background. I have also taken Chinese classes for six years and scored a 760/800 on the SAT subject test and a 5 on the A.P. exams.

Elementary Math

I went to a private school and was taught multiplication and long division at an early age (2nd grade). In school, algebra was also my strongest subject. Geometry gave me difficulties, but I know basic concepts learned in high school and can teach proofs.

SAT Writing

I scored a 690/800 on the SAT writing portion and a 10/12 on the essay. I have been tutored in grammar patterns and understand how to tackle the SAT sections.
