I started working as a tutor while in RCC college at the request of my Psychology professor. He asked me to lecture, because my knowledge of Yoga and Buddhist Psychology was relevant to his honor courses. At that time, I was elected to membership in the PHI SIGMA OMICRON Honor Society in recognition of outstanding academic achievement, of which I have the certificate. I also have a certificate indicating that I received Maurice Guild Psychology Department Scholarship in 2001 in recognition of outstanding academic achievement.
In ESC I also was a strait A student and have the official Learning Contract Evaluations by My Philosophy mentor.
In the US, I started working with children in sports in 1992. At that time I was a coach in Yoga, Martial Arts, and Gymnastics. I have very positive letters of recommendation from my colleagues and supervisors who were professionals in each area of discipline. They do mention that my teachings were very beneficial to the students.
After graduating from my second college in 2003 I worked as a Substitute Teacher 1-12 in all subjects until 2013 and helped all kinds of students of all ages.
In 2013-2015 I worked at a big translation project (eight volumes of philosophical and religious texts, including poetry and short stories), which was successfully completed in July. I have a letter of gratitude from my satisfied employer.
I believe that I can help children to understand certain important things in life while learning the necessary skills, in order to become a truly educated person.I
