About Thuy

Hello!

My name is Thuy N. and I am a graduate from the University of California Berkeley. My primary areas of focus are in the fields of writing, Elementary studies, and mathematics. I have over 10 years of tutoring experience stemming from pre-kindergarten to the 12th grade. In the past, I have worked as a volunteer preschool teacher, a volunteer tutor in the Oakland Unified School District, a private bilingual tutor for a Vietnamese family, a summer counselor specializing in preparing high school students for the SAT and ACT examinations, and a mathematics tutor for a local education center in the city of Torrance (in CA) among other academia related jobs. In addition, I have helped various high school seniors prepare for college by editing personal statements and applying for scholarships. As you can see, I have had a solid foundation in tutoring and mentoring youth.

I believe tutoring is more than just teaching the fundamentals necessary for the students to pass the class. From my lessons at Cal especially from within the education department, learning comes in many different forms. My method of tutoring reflects enhancing the student's literacy of the subject material in order to succeed in the class. I truly believe that students can achieve the best if they understand, are enthusiastic, and eager to practice the particular subject matter they wish to improve upon.

A little about myself:

I was born and raised in the Bay Area. I have lived in Southern California, where I completed a graduate program. Currently, I am spending the summer at Duke until the end of July. I will be starting medical school in August. I love to rock climb, make arts and crafts, and watch sports. I am an avid traveler; I recently saw the cherry blossoms in Japan, hiked Patagonia over the winter holidays, backpacked in 13 different European countries, climbed to Machu Picchu, and went to the London Olympics. I am the type of person to make the most out of every experience and try to enjoy life!

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.
