Education2nd Year French and Psychology Major at University of California at Berkeley
ExperienceFrom 2011 - 2012, I tutored a special needs student in high school Chemistry. He had Tourette's, Aspergers, bipolar disorder, and ADHD, so his tutoring needs were centered more around motivation and discipline as opposed to a lack of understanding of the material. The student received a B in the class. I also tutored a college student at San Jose State University in basic conversational French, in order to prepare him for a semester abroad in Lille, France. I've tutored high school students for French exams, and these students have received Bs or better. Here and there, I have also tutored various classmates in subjects such as French and English and have edited many English and French essays.
My SAT score was 2200 (770 Reading, 790 Writing, 640 Math). My AP scores were as follows:
AP US History: 5
AP French: 5
AP Psychology: 5
AP US Government: 4
AP Microeconomics: 4
AP Literature: 5
Other items from my resume include:
-- Marketing Committee Team Member in "Berkeley Women in Business"
--Research Assistant at Golden Bear Sleep & Mood Clinic
-- Note-taker for Disabled Students' Program at UC Berkeley
-- Opinion Section Editor of Palos Verdes Peninsula High School's award-winning newspaper "The Pen"
-- Competing member of PVPHS's Speech & Debate team
I'm very good with people, so I can interact well with a given student, and qualified to deal with difficult situations or teach people who have a difficult time with learning a certain subject, whatever may be the reason. I use many different types of tutoring styles when I tutor, including but not limited to visual explanations, crafting exercises for the student to complete, making analogies, etc. Tutoring is about tailoring one's teaching style to cater to the student's intellectual needs, and explaining things in an effective way -- these two things have always been strengths of mine. Moreover, I've always been very punctual and on top of my workload.
HobbiesCreative writing, music, reading, studying French language
