I've been a private tutor for the past 15 years and spent a year training as a Princeton review educator when I was a student at Princeton University (I graduated from the university in 1994). I work with students from kindergarten to adulthood and enjoy tailoring my approach to address each student's concerns and goals. I frequently look to have my students play an active role in uncovering the strategies that works best for them, thinking of them as a member of a two person team. I strive to have my students, whatever age, feel both supported and challenged during our sessions while giving them the tools to feel confident when I'm not around.
I can help with English essays, improving punctuation, grammar, etc. mathematics up to algebra 1 (I have taken pre-calculus), homework, standardized testing prep and can also teach piano. I am Vietnamese and have also taken Spanish 3, so I can help with basic Vietnamese and Spanish. I tutor peers at my school during lunch and am able to explain concepts to help them understand. As a high school student, I am able to easily connect with people and will do my best.
