Having been fascinated with the inner workings of programs from a young age, I take joy in constructing my own within several platforms. I would be more than happy to teach those with the same passion for computer science. Languages I have worked on include Java, C++, Ruby and HTML. In regard to teaching these subjects, I have experience in the past teaching elementary school kids how to program their own robots. Your school assignments will seem just as easy to you in no time! I can also offer tutoring for Japanese, having been raised in a Japanese household and attended the San Francisco Japanese Language Class for over 10 years. I was also a teacher aide for AP Japanese at my local high school, so I know firsthand what challenges students' face when learning this particular language. With these experiences, I can teach Japanese like no other tutor can. I look forward to further correspondence!

My stepdaughter has been working with Sylvia for a few months now and we can really see a difference in her math and English (reading, writing, spelling, etc). My stepdaughter actually looks forward to her time with Sylvia, which is so important to us. Sylvia is very patient, personable and knowledgeable. My stepdaughter got very excited yesterday, after she found out that Sylvia is also fluent in Spanish because she would like to start working on that as well. I feel that we really lucked out with finding Sylvia. Soon, my other stepdaughter will be working with Sylvia to prep her for the SSAT!
Karen is a really wonderful mentor and tutor. She has been working with my kids for the past six years and she has a great way of setting high expectations while being supportive at the same time. I've seen her work with a variety of different styles of learners, and she seems to really "get" kids, and be willing to meet them where they are. What I most appreciate about Karen is her commitment to working with their strengths and building up the areas where they need improvement. Karen genuinely likes kids - and she enjoys working with them. It has been a huge blessing to have worked with Karen.
Because we are small, we are able to offer a far more personalized approach than many large tutoring houses. Yet, we have the tools, training, and know-how of a large academic institution. For each student, we systematically work to identify problems, and then collaboratively create a plan to solve them using innovative curriculum design. Above all else, we are passionate about what we do! We care about genuine knowledge and understanding: we look beyond the numbers. We teach students to set their own goals, not merely jump through the hoops in front of them. We strongly believe that any student can succeed with the right combination of guidance, enthusiasm, and challenge.
Are you ready to take your studies to the next level and get the grades you want? Then you're ready for tutoring with me. I have tutoring experience in public speaking, ESL, Spanish, and study skills. I specialize in these areas as well as math up through precalculus, writing, and all areas of the SAT. Before we meet, we have a free 30-minute consultation on the phone to discuss what your needs are, the best times for us to meet, how often you would like to meet, and how many lessons you want. Then we schedule your first lesson, which is free, as well to make sure that we are the best fit for your needs, with no risk to you. I received a 3.9 high school GPA from Bellarmine College Preparatory, and scored a 2200 on the SAT, with an 800 in Writing, 650 in Math, and 750 in Verbal. I graduated with a 3.6 college GPA from the University of Southern California. At USC, I majored in Neuroscience and minored in Spanish. I combine deep academic knowledge with strong tutoring skills. I believe that there is no such thing as a person who is "not good" at something. Everyone can improve with practice and feedback, and that is what I'm here to provide.
I offer techniques and an understanding of subjects that other tutors do not. I wish to attain graduate degrees in Education and pursue a career in the field, so I have spent a great deal of time devoted to understanding learning styles and crafting specialized curriculum. I do not espouse problem memorization but rather conceptual understanding.
