I present concepts in a variety of ways, such as: "hands on," visually, problem-solving, and inquiry-based. I reinforce the concepts each time we have a session.

Not all students are successful and the trick is to identify the reasons behind the lack of success. The issues that students have with school are diverse; procrastination, lack of organization, failure to plan, lack of awareness, ineffective habits, learning disabilities, and differences are all possible explanations for school failure. I work with students one on one to help them pinpoint where things break down for them and then work with them to find strategies to help them manage the skills and material they are asked to learn and master. I am there to guide, not just instruct. I have been in education for 16 years. I specialize in working with students with ADD/ADHD, specific learning disabilities as well as students who underachieve. I have a Master's Degree in Special Education and have successfully worked with students all over the Bay Area to help them realize their full p

"A teacher is one who makes himself progressively unnecessary" I think that this quote about teaching, in a way, reflects my idea on what teaching is all about. One can be a good teacher, whose characteristics encompass good knowledge of the subject matter, understanding the needs of your students, and the ability to apply this knowledge to students' needs. However, an effective teacher does not only pass knowledge on to her students, but makes herself gradually unnecessary: her learners become independent learners as they progress through a course. As a teacher, I always try to be effective in this sense - I foster independence in my students. At the same time, I strive for excellence which will eventually make me a better teacher. This endeavor caused me to reflect on how an excellent teacher is different from a good teacher. The conclusion I have come to is that a gap between a go

I adapt my style to your individual needs. Some students prefer to use a textbook, but with others I will provide appropriate study materials. I like to get to know my students so that we can focus only exactly what you need to improve as quickly as possible. I have years of experience teaching and tutoring English as a second language, both in the U.S. and overseas. My students have included high school students, community college students, university and postgraduate students, and working professionals of all ages. I have taught speakers of Spanish, Portuguese, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Arabic, Farsi and Turkish. I am also an experienced tutor in law, having taught both law and paralegal students in substantive law, legal writing, test taking skills, and LSAT preparation. I also work with business students who are taking business law and business ethics classes.

I love working with students. One on one is even better than teaching groups of thirty in my book. I also worked ten years as a Physical Chemist where I had to know Math and Physics as much as Chemistry. I have taught Math, Physics, Biology in addition to Chemistry, and tutored in all these areas. I also graded essays for the state of Georgia and so I could sharpen any students essay skills. I have lived in Africa and so am ready to work with any culture. I believe that each student should learn to be in charge of their own education. My goal is to help them achieve that goal. I am not quick to jump in with the answer but can wait patiently for them to work through the problem. Since I learned by a very different method than my teachers tried to teach, I look for a students learning style. If he is not getting the concept, I'll try another or even invent one on the spot.

As a graduate student at UC Berkeley, I was a TA for twelve semesters in a range of physics classes. In 2002 I won the UC Berkeley Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor award. After graduating I was a lecturer for 2 years at 50% time. This was at California College of the Arts in San Francisco. There I developed and taught new coursed in math, physics and programming that were fine tuned for the needs of the architecture students. I can make complete sets of student evaluations available to you on request --- they are very favorable. I spent many office hours working one-on-one with the weaker students, and so I have considerable tutoring experience. As a classroom instructor, I am conscious that one needs to constantly engage with and interact with the class. I always taught in a tutorial style, where after I've introduced the material the students must solve a puzzle or problem based

I have received an A in every English course since elementary school and was in GATE since I was 7 years old. I took English/AP honors throughout High School and received a 5 on SAT literature. In addition to English, I also am able to teach biology.I’ve taken various courses of biology and have experience in research and field experiments. From basic biology to high school AP biology, any course related to such topics is of my expertise. Initially depending on the subject I utilize my own constructed 'initiation exam' where I'm able to test various topics of either subject and find the student's weakeness. Once taken I construct my own style of tutoring using various books, personal references, and previous assig

Every person is unique and the style of instruction to be given to each student must be adequate to the level the student can sustain. I believe all students, children to adult level, are intelligent and will learn the material if the teacher is willing to put in the effort and express a teaching style in which is easy to be understood. With repetition, patience, and willingness to achieve success, a student and a teacher will achieve success. My goal is to stand by the side of every student who is willing to gain knowledge and succeed. As a graduate of the University of California, Merced with a BS in Biological Sciences, emphasis track in Microbiology & Immunology, I mastered the knowledge of how the human systems interact amongst each other at a cellular and organs level in addition to the structure of the body’s fighting mechanisms to defend itself against foreign pathogens.

I know of few things that compare to the moment a concept or idea clicks in a student's head. Regardless if it registers with a knowing nod or is the result of a difficult grinding process, the feeling for me is the same. I firmly believe that no two children think in exactly the same way, and so often no two children learn in exactly the same way. Differences in persepective, experience, environment, etc. mean paths to discovery may differ for each child. My job as an educator is to find that path through patience, compassion and creativity, all while creating an enjoyable learning environment. Since high school I have always been in a postion as a mentor and tutor. One of my first experiences was as a camp counselor for inner-city youth. Since then my affinity for teaching has grown while serving as a Bible study teacher and private tutor, to the position I now have as Assistant Direct
