I have a 13 year old sister, so I have been always helping her with school, whether it be math, science, English, and even art. Currently, she excels in all those subjects.
I have always enjoyed sharing my knowledge and thoughts, and I am very patient. I know for many, school and studying may seem boring or even frustrating, but my techniques and enthusiasm will not only help improve test scores, but will also make the student genuinely more interested in the subject. Not only do I understand my material thoroughly, I am also creative; so IF someone doesn't understand what I'm trying to explain, I can easily explain it another way from a different angle.
I have experience helping and teaching a wide range of people. Most recently, I have taught the biological sciences section of the MCAT to college students for the Princeton Review. I have helped elementary school students with their science projects, taught middle-school aged students in Chinese School, and frequently led seminars and review sessions in college. It feels extremely satisfying when I help someone finally understand a concept.
HobbiesOne of my biggest passions is sports. Aside from playing them, I have also been refereeing soccer for 11 years. Refereeing and teaching have a lot in common, so it's no question that I love them both!
I enjoy learning new instruments. I played the trumpet up until college, and now I'm learning to play the acoustic guitar.
I love travelling and experiencing different cultures. If I have a year to do anything I want, I'd go live in the Safari, not only to experience the lifestyle, but also to see that starry nights and the African Wildlife.
