Elementary Math


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.
