Dear potential student/parent of student seeking tutoring,

I am currently a graduate student in the Comparative International Development of Education program at the University of Minnesota, and work as an international educator during the usual work day.

In my hours outside of work, I tutor students that are preparing for college entrance exams including the ACT, SAT, IELTS and TOEFL. I also tutor students in a variety of disciplines and would be happy to be contacted regarded subjects that are not listed under my available tutoring subjects to see if I may be able to accommodate your request.

In 2013-14, I taught mathematics and English at an international school in Kunming, China. I was primarily an SAT math teacher, as well as a core-level math instructor (British standardized testing), which included topics in algebra, trigonometry, geometry, pre-calculus, and calculus. I also taught TOEFL and IELTS speaking courses for large and small groups of students and helped students to raise their scores for college admission and communicate more effectively. I also taught at an Adult Basic Education center upon returning from China, and taught students at a low/basic level of English to improve their foundations of English to advance to higher levels.

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Superior in 2013 and majored in Spanish with a Global Studies and Mathematics double minor. I have been a private tutor for about ten years. I have been able to help students with Spanish, math, chemistry, standardized test prep (SAT/ACT) and ESL requests. I also help ESL students who are seeking ways to communicate in English for every day use (going to the store, going to children's conferences, going to the doctor, etc.).

I'm interested in learning how each student learns best, as there are many ways to learn. I like to cater to the student's specific learning style(s) as this is a more effective teaching style. I've also helped students develop study skills so they are able to be more efficient and ultimately suc

Starting during my second year of college, I tutored a student to raise his ACT score, which included underlying study skills, such as time management and organization. Last year, I tutored a student specifically to help him with his math skills and study skills. We discussed methods to keep his homework and other priorities organized so he could still be active in sports. I helped him to start using a planner, flashcards, bundling, mnemonic devices and other devices that promote long term learning and I showed him how to prioritize his list of tasks he needed to accomplish so he could keep doing well in his classes.

During the 2013-2014 school year at a Chinese high school, I taught several IELTS courses as well as tutored two students to help improve their IELTS scores. I also helped the school administer practice IELTS questions to help the students prepare for their official tests. I help students to find their weaknesses and improve upon their grammar, vocabulary, fluency and confidence and help them apply these skills to their IELTS test.
