College Admissions
When preparing for college admissions, I believe the most important piece is the essay. By writing well-thought out and creative essays admission officers are better able to match a face to the application. As a tutor in college counseling, I would work with my students on crafting the perfect essay. I believe with a fresh out of college experience and understanding of the criteria it takes towards acceptance to an elite school, I can provide great assistance to helping my students get accepted to the college of their dreams.

Beginners Chinese
I was very close to minoring in Chinese Language. I completed 2 years of Chinese. In addition, during the fall quarter of my Junior Year I studied abroad in Beijing, China for 3 months. I received excellent marks in all of my Chinese language courses.

Economics/Business
As part of the core of my major, I completed a wide range of economics classes including econometrics. I believe I have a solid understanding of courses relevant to the major and can teach and assist students with economics-related academic needs. In addition, I've worked for a corporation that specializes in providing financial services and thus would be able to tutor students who need help in business or finance subjects.

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.

Econometrics

As part of the core of my economics major, I took econometrics during my junior year. I learned the subject in lectures and by working in study groups. I assisted students by answering questions they did not understand about the material taught in class. I believe I have a solid understanding of the subject and can teach and assist students with the course materials.

Study Skills

In college, I learned a number of useful, efficient and innovative study techniques in order to help me succeed in my courses. After learning these methods, I taught them to a few classmates. Some of the most notable methods included how to "speed-read" large amounts of text and pick up what's important, get a head start on problem sets and execute an excellent verbal presentation or speech. I believe that my work ethic combined with the aforementioned experiences make me an excellent candidate to teach my students life-long study skills.
