Teaching, Tutoring, & Coaching
I went to college with the intent of becoming an educator and have 3 years experience as a teacher, 4 as a tutor, 1 as a High School Essay Editor, and about 6 months as a High School > College Counselor. I also helped the Malaysian government with their educational reform (Genovasi)! Even though my career path has transitioned from education, teaching, tutoring, and coaching others is a very important part of my life.
My experience as a middle school teacher with Citizen Schools and the time I spent teaching kindergarteners at Genius Kids changed my life. It made me realize how important it is to have a high-quality education and for children to have an adult other than their family who truly cares about their education and their future.
More recently, I worked for HS2 Academy as both a Counselor and Essay Editor. This experience was unlike my other education experience, not only due to the age group I worked with, but also seeing the direct impact of helping students get into the college of their dreams.
Knowing that I changed lives for the better was the biggest motivator I’ve ever experienced.
Even after leaving the education world, I continued as a tutor for a range of ages up through high school and eventually translated that into tutoring college students and coaching professionals.
I have experience tutoring in a range of subjects, from elementary math and science to high school history and Ph.D. level English, literature, and writing.
