I graduated from UC Berkeley (BA with High Distinction, 2015) in English and History. I teach and research in the areas of literacy, Anglophone literature, cultural studies, and literary theory and history. I give English lessons mainly at the junior high, high school, and college levels. My lessons focus on literacy to literary analysis to essay writing. My teaching methodology stems from my experience at UC Berkeley where I had amazing mentors who encouraged me to pursue my own interests and develop my own learning style while always being there when I had questions and needed help. As a teacher, I also strive to be supportive and empowering. I provide structure and concrete content but encourage students to think critically and creatively.
All our ratings are collected by us and are in confidence, they correspond to a real experience.
An is a wonderful and determined person. When she sets her mind to something she accomplishes it and she WILL help you accomplish whatever goal you set out to achieve. Her teaching style is also easy to understand and relatable. Trust me when I say you can trust An as your teacher and will enjoy the experience.
My have been tutoring for seven years, teaching at both after-school academies and in private lessons. I have helped students excel in standardized tests (SAT, ACT, and AP English) as well as in their classes. Some students needed help with grammar and mechanics, the more technical aspects of language. Others needed help with close reading and analysis, how to make an argument or propose an interesting idea about a work of literature. I am equipped to tutor in both scenarios.
