Elementary Science


Elementary (K-6th)

Having obtained an internship connected to the UCLA School of Public Health and directed by Dr. Todd Franke, I was able to work for 2 quarters as a 5th-grade Fitness & Nutrition Teacher at Stoner Avenue Elementary School in Culver City, CA; thus, I have experience not only in interacting with elementary-level kids but also formulating lesson plans, classroom materials, and working with elementary school educators and staff. Much of the preparation for being certified to teach came from a Social Welfare 195 class all interns were required to take before they were allowed on the field. There, we learned classroom teaching skills geared towards the elementary grade level; for the final exam, we were then required to provide a demonstration of our teaching abilities in front of the internship coordinators. I received a A (i.e. 4.0) mark for this course.


Study Skills

At UCLA, I had to opportunity to take a specialized course offered by the Education Department (Education 92F) which focuses specifically on study skills and the research behind different internal and external factors that influence undergraduates to succeed in their courses and college in general. Moreover, while tutoring high school and middle school students in math and science subjects, it is very seldom that I do not also teach the study skills necessary to do well on future homework and tests. Lastly, I myself, having graduated UCLA with high honors, have developed a very good foundation in my own study skills and many of my mentees at UCLA in various organizations that I am a part of have thought my sharing of these skills was extremely helpful.


Chinese

I have over 15+ years of private Chinese education and teaching experience. I have taught Chinese to many students in my career and continue to teach and tutor many students in Chinese. I am experienced in teaching both the written and spoken Chinese language. I have won several awards in Chinese speech and Chinese calligraphy contests. I am a native Chinese speaker and also teach students about the native Chinese culture if they want to learn.


Web Design

I have extensive web design and programming experience, having taken premium classes locally and through online subscription sites. My areas of expertise in particular are: use of the WordPress content management system (CMS), creating, setting up, and designing websites, graphic design (business logos, advertisement videos, animations, banners, etc.), HTML, CSS, PHP, Javascript, and use of Distributed Version Control systems (e.g. Git & GitHub).


MCAT

I have and currently tutor hundreds of students every year on the MCAT through various tutoring companies, with many scoring over 520 on the New MCAT exam. I was actually one of the workshop coordinators for MCAT preparation and medical school applications at the UCLA Career Center. Having taught the MCAT for so many years, I am extremely well-versed with the MCAT exam content and the MCAT subject areas of Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Psychology, Sociology, and CARS. My preparation consist of a comprehensive review of all topics, a thorough discussion of all strategies and methods of approaching the question types, and the provision of practice exams and other study materials for time not spent in session.


ISEE

I have tutored students on the ISEE at the upper, middle, and lower levels. My tutoring involves a comprehensive approach to all four sections of the ISEE: verbal reasoning; math (quantitative reasoning and mathematics achievement); reading comprehension; and the essay. Similar to other tests, I go over the content, question types, and strategy for each section. I have achieved superior results with students willing to apply themselves fully to the program.
