ExperienceI am a tutor living in Walnut Creek, California. I have tutoring experience in different math and science content areas, including elementary and middle school math, pre-algebra, biology, earth and environmental science, astronomy, and life sciences. Additionally, I can help students with English, ELL/ESL, and test prep for different standardized exams. I am a patient teacher who understands that students have a variety of different learning styles. To accommodate my students of varying ages, I can use different teaching strategies such as utilizing games and multimedia with children and taking a more direct approach with older students or adults. My teaching experience includes teaching English at an institution in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and elementary and middle school math at a private school also located in Thailand. I attended San Diego State University and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. I have an easy-going personality and also have a great penchant for traveling and wildlife. After graduation, I spent two years in Southeast Asia and have traveled to over 20 countries. While in Southeast Asia, I had the chance to go into jungle areas and interact with the wildlife, including elephants and tigers. Because of my great affinity for wildlife and the outdoors, I am presently in training to become a wildlife biologist and do volunteer work with the Lindsay Wildlife Hospital. In my spare time, I like to surf, snowboard, fish, play variety of sports, and travel.
