EducationBA Degree from UC Berkeley
ExperienceI have many tutoring experiences with students of all ages (2nd graders-12th graders), and I have been tutoring students for over 7 years.
The main reason why I tutor is because I enjoy working with students. My past experiences with students have been very rewarding because I gained valuable lessons through associating with many energetic and bright people. Furthermore, I have realized that a deeper understanding of knowledge in a subject matter is obtained through teaching it to others.
Over the course of tutoring many different types of students, I have developed an ability to explain study materials clearly and thoroughly where students felt comfortable understanding what they were learning. I personally do not believe it is neither effective nor moral to give negative comments to students who are struggling with any academic materials; thus, I promote giving encouragements and positive attentions. My level of patience has improved tremendously through encountering difficult students along the way, and I think such ability will be beneficial in working with students of all ages.
HobbiesI love baking and eating pastries. I am passionate when it comes to discussing philosophers such as Descartes and Gramsci. Even though I am not too sporty, I enjoy snowboarding and swimming.
I recently purchased an adorable maltipoo and his name is Baron. I am planning to take him to a puppy school so I can learn how to become a pack leader and he can learn how to be a calm submissive follower.

Alice was amazing. I had exactly one month to study about 5 big geometry topics to take a placement test at the end of the summer for the class I failed last year. She was on time always, and each class time was like a one on one with a geometry teacher, not a tutor. And of course, I passed the test with a good grade. I will continue to receive help from Alice. Thanks Alice!
Alice has tutored my girls over the past year. She is very reliable and great with them. Both my girls have very different personalities and needs and she seems very capable to meet them where they are at. It has been a very positive experience working with her. I would highly recommend her! When I was in a bind one evening, she even drove to downtown oOakland to pick up my daughter for me. She is great!
She got back to me very quickly. She explained herself in a very clear manner. For the class she was on time and very professional. I am very pleased with the tutor.
