Private tutor in San Jose, CA
Southern Methodist University - BA, English Lit. & Psychology , San Jose State University - MA, Speech Language Pathology
In 2013, I earned two degrees in psychology and English literature at Southern Methodist University in Texas. Right now, I'm working toward earning a master's degree from San Jose State University in speech language pathology. I've dedicated much of my time to working with children in several different capacities - from tutoring to babysitting. I've also worked as a camp counselor for special needs children, donated my time to helping at-risk youth with assignments, and served as a group leader to help pre-teen girls maintain their reading competency during summer vacation.When it comes to my teaching skills, I'm able to leverage my English literature background to help students who need extra help with writing essays and reading comprehension. I am additionally proficient at teaching math and basic subjects at the elementary and middle school levels. To broaden my skills even more, I've started helping students prepare for the SAT through critical reading and writing teachings. Over the years, I've had several opportunities to take helpful cues from my students and my experiences. I've learned that there isn't one cookie-cutter solution to learning. Every individual student needs personalized attention and processes information at his or her own pace and in his or her own unique way. I've learned to adapt my teaching style to what each student responds to best.When I'm not in the classroom, I fill my free time with hiking, singing, cooking, yoga, and books.
