I've been tutoring for 8 years, and I love it. At UCLA, I tutored college students in literature and writing. During a summer I worked at a K-12 tutoring center that focused on reading and math skill building, as well as homework help. After graduating from college, I was hired as the educational director of Cambridge test prep center. I taught the verbal section of the SAT, essay writing skills, vocabulary building and reading comprehension. When I teach, I want my students to learn useful skills that improve their performance in the short and long term. I ask helpful questions and I'm a great problem solver. I prepare a customized lesson for each session, and my schedule is flexible to accomodate last-minute test prep or big homework projects. I want my students to succeed, and I'll do what it takes.
