...I have experience teaching ESL both in a classroom setting and one-on-one. I also have lived in a number of foreign countries in Asia and in South America, and have family members who have English as their second language. My instructional strategies vary according to the age of my student, my student's learning style, and my student's needs and goals.

...I was part of the biotechnology process engineering center at MIT. I've tutored number theory since 2001. I also learned and used combinatorics and discrete probability theory in graduate school for research.

...I enjoy the feeling of helping others learn something new, even with those younger than me, because of my past experiences. I was a camp counselor for kids between 6-8 for 6 summers, where I had a blast managing and helping the kids have a good time. I managed to teach some young kids how to tie their shoes for the first time so I know I have some ability to teach.

...I am very good at seeing things from the student?s perspective, which helps me in explaining difficult concepts clearly and simply. I am particularly effective when I can work one-on-one with a student, and support them throughout the learning process. One of the great pleasures of tutoring is to see the spark of understanding when a student grasps a difficult concept.

...I received a 34/36 on the 2010 ACT Reading, within 98th percentile performance. I also find the ACT to be much more intuitive than the rote memorization of the SAT. Thus, I would be able to use my student-centered approach to teaching various humanities courses to help students uncover their learning and be confident when the test comes.
