About Kelsey

Hello! I am currently a freshman enrolled in the University of Washington's school of engineering. My tutoring experience ranges from being a teaching intern at Seattle Chinese School for elementary school children to volunteering as a K-12 academic peer tutor at various local libraries to volunteering for Seattle Music Partners as a violin tutor for underprivileged children. My particular academics strengths include mathematics and science, though music has also been a passion of mine for a decade now. I strive to facilitate academic as well as personal growth in students and I am glad to be able to further expand my field of knowledge and gain more experience through educating and tutoring!

MATH/SCIENCE: I have taken and scored 5's on the AP Biology, AP Physics, AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, AP Statistic exams as well as an 800 on SAT math.

ENGLISH: I have taken and scored 5's on the AP English Language as well as AP English Literature exams.

LANGUAGES: I was raised with Chinese (Cantonese) being my first language. I then attended Seattle Chinese School for 11 years learning Mandarin Chinese and proceeded to become a Chinese teaching intern helping elementary school children gain proficiency in not only the Chinese language itself but also Chinese culture. I am officially certified by the state of Washington with the Seal of Biliteracy in both Mandarin Chinese and Spanish.

MUSIC: I have played classical piano for 11 years and violin for 8 years. I passed the Carnegie Hall Royal Conservatory Practical Piano Exam with First Class Honors- ranking first in the state of Washington- and earned a perfect score on the Music Theory Exam. I have played violin in various youth symphony orchestras as well as the WMEA All-State and NAfME All-Northwest Orchestras. I have served as the concertmaster of the Newport High School Chamber Orchestra for 3 years and earned the title of Best High String Soloist at the 2016 National Orchestra Cup in New York.

I am incredibly excited to have the opportunity to tutor and I look forward to meeting you!

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.

Chinese

I was raised with Cantonese Chinese being my first language. I am officially certified by the state of Washington with the Seal of Biliteracy in Mandarin Chinese. I am proficient in both the Cantonese and Mandarin dialects of Chinese as I attended Seattle Chinese school for 11 years. I have participated in and won many Chinese Speech Competitions and served as a teaching intern at Seattle Chinese School upon my graduation. I assisted 4th graders in building their Chinese language fluency as well as their knowledge of general Chinese culture.

Elementary Math

I graduated having taken Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Precalculus, AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, and AP Statistics. Math has easily been the subject I have had most confidence in for the entirety of my primary and secondary education.

Violin

I have been playing violin for 8 years and have served as the concertmaster of Newport High School Chamber Orchestra and Philharmonic for 3 years. I have placed 1st at the Bellevue Youth Symphony Orchestra's Concerto Competition, placed 1st at the 2016 Eastshore Solo and Ensemble Contest, competed at the 2015 and 2016 WIAA State Solo and Ensemble Contest, been accepted to the WMEA 2014/2016 All State Symphony Orchestras and the NAfME 2015 All Northwest Orchestra as a 1st Violin. I have also competed as concertmaster of small ensembles in the 2015 National Orchestra Festival in Utah, where we placed 2nd, and the 2016 National Orchestra Cup in New York, where we placed 1st and I was awarded Best High String Solo.
