Tutor Information


I have a B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Early Childhood Education, Master's in Religion, a Post-Master's in College Teaching and a 120-hour TESOL Certification. I have 7 years experience teaching English as an Online ESL teacher to children ages 3 to 18 and Adults 19 and up from China, Japan, Taiwan and here in the United States. I am currently a 1st & 2nd Grade Mixed Teacher for a private school. I have taught English Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Science, Reading, Vocabulary, Grammar, Phonics, Spelling, Handwriting, Writing. I also attended Art Instruction Schools where I acquired a certificate in the Fundamentals of Art. I love art and drawing. I am a self-taught artist and love drawing cartoon characters and animals, practically anything I can see, I can usually draw it. I believe learning should be student centered, fun, and engaging. This will help students obtain knowledge as they develop their critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Teaching is my passion and I enjoy helping students reach their academic goals. Teaching is my Passion! I enjoy working with children and Adults and my hobbies are Reading, Drawing, going for walks in the park, playing computer games and spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy going to the Science Museum.
