Enthusiastic, certified ESL educator, with a Master's in education. I optimize learning with engaging, student-relevant activities by serving the needs of and positively transforming diverse populations through innovative programs.
Engage and empower learners by designing activities that address their needs and interests, resulting in autonomy and self-direction for more advanced production and to instill confidence and life-skills through supportive interaction.
Intuitively meet the needs of at-risk youth; and train educational teams, committed to the academic success of each student. I foster and elicit student innovation, fortitude, and confidence, using a student-centered approach.
The first lesson is a free one-hour consultation.
If the round-trip travel distance is 40+ miles, then the travel time is added to the total tutoring fee (one way only).
Whenever the tutoring time accrues to 5+ hours within the same week, the rate for that week is reduced to only $35/hour (saving $50+).
For over eight years, I have been teaching, tutoring, and training a diverse community in the U.S. and abroad.
Recently, as an international, full-time teacher at universities in Shanghai, I was teaching over 300 students every semester.
As SAT Accelerated English teacher at Northwest Chinese School, I helped AP, middle school and high school students advance their academic knowledge and improve their test-taking strategies to increase their SAT exam scores.
Between 2010 to 2016, from my tutoring at Bellevue College in the TRiO Student Support Services and Disability Resource Center, under the Academic Success Center, our objective was effectively achieved in developing the academic skills, increasing the GPA, and boosting the graduation rate, which was enhanced by the TRiO's certification program.
