ExperienceI have over five years of experience tutoring students of all ages. I have worked in tutoring academies, and worked privately in-home with students.
Every student has different needs and I aim to provide an individualized plan for improving grades and achieving goals with each student. However, every student can benefit from gaining confidence, having a love of learning, and improving study skills. I take joy in providing support to bolster a student's self-esteem and also his/her abilities, especially in English skills such as reading comprehension and writing.
Most recently I worked with two siblings for two years, who are currently in 7th and 10th grades. As English Language Learners, they needed extra assistance in improving reading, writing, grammar, and vocabulary. I was also able to work with them to better understand their other school subjects by reading with them, discussing, and helping them to analyze texts.
I also tutor sporadically online, assisting students with essays and reading literature or texts. I find that even college-level students sometimes need a sounding board to discuss ideas represented in texts, or to clarify meaning when writing an essay.
I have recently relocated to the OC. I am interested in homework help in all subjects for students up to 9th grade, or tutoring in English, Reading, or Writing at any level. I also have past experience in teaching the former SAT Verbal and Writing, and the ACT English and Writing. I am available daily after 3 pm, including weekends.
HobbiesI love reading books - novels are my favorite form, but I also enjoy a great short story or play. Also, in order to keep up with current reading material, I will occasionally enjoy a youth level book or revisit old favorites.
I enjoy exploring good places to eat but frequently eat at home, trying out new recipes I find online. I make an effort to keep the coffee to one cup a day, but it's an extremely tall cup!
My guilty pleasure is watching comedies or romantic comedies, although I also enjoy action adventures.
I love to catch up with friends and meet one-on-one for conversations about life, books, and movies. I am always open to meeting new people, new students, and creating a better world for everyone involved by being positive, caring, and responsible.
