Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I have obtained various experiences with teaching, including teaching a roomful of students in a classroom setting to being a one-on-one tutor in a private space. I enjoy helping out students who need help because it makes me feel more worthy of my standing in the society. I personally favor tutoring students one-on-one because it is much easier to keep track of the students' progress, making it more accessible for me to take measures to help student(s) improve on their corresponding troubled skills.

I was a teacher in a summer day camp for students from elementary school and junior high school. Teaching a roomful of students was my major responsibility while I worked there.
As I began to garner more interest after that wonderful teaching experience, I became an unpaid tutor in my former high school, tutoring my fellow schoolmates in many areas of subject with focus on Math A, Math B, Pre-Calc, and Calculus AB, chemistry and English (ESL). I enjoy contributing to students' process of learning, therefore I find teaching or tutoring very rewarding on my part.
After I left high school, and started on my college journey, I became an America Reads tutor in a junior high school, and was placed in classes of students who needed special attention and extra care in their learning procedures. In there, I tutored in global history, American history, algebra, basic English and trigonometry.

My strong fields are Math A, Math B and Pre-Calculus. However, I can also assist in chemistry, physics, musical theory, and history.

My SAT scores:
English: 600
Math: 740

AP Grades:
Calculus AB: 4
AP American history: 4
AP English Language: 4
