Vivien M.

I currently attend UC Berkeley with a major in chemical engineering. I will be graduating Spring 2014. During the school year, I usually am either doing research or interning in addition to being a full-time student. This year, I simply wish to make a positive impact on my community by helping students who are struggling in their studies. I have accepted a full-time employment offer with Chevron and will start after I graduate and earn my bachelors. In high school, I had excelled in Calculus so I would tutor students my age for the Calculus AP at the Khai Tri Learning Center every summer. I also had experience tutoring math and science to middle-school students at the learning center. I had helped all of my Calculus students earn at least a 3 on the Calculus AP exam, and I consider this one of my proudest achievements because I felt that I had made an impact on their lives. During my undergraduate years, I had focused on research and internships so I did not have the opportunity to hold an official tutoring position since then, although I do tutor my brother (a high school senior) in honors physics when he needs help. Every student has a different learning style, and I like to tailor my tutoring approach to each individual student's preferences. Some students learn more quickly by examples, so I use examples as much as possible to help solidify their understanding of concepts. In addition, some students learn more quickly by analogies, by use of visuals, by diagrams/flow charts, etc. I start my tutoring approach by first assessing what type of learning style my student prefers, and then implementing the approach while keeping note of how to better improve it for each tutoring session. Fun Facts: When I'm not studying or doing homework, I love to go outdoors. My favorite sports are tennis and volleyball. I enjoy hiking scenic routes and going on adventures.

Frog Tutoring says

In 2009, Roland Omene, a TCU bio-chemistry graduate, founded Frog Tutoring. The company originated in Fort Worth, TX, and is quickly expanding to cities all over the country. Frog Tutoring was founded under the belief that all students deserve tutoring regardless of age. We believe the first step in successful tutoring is finding the “right” tutor. That is why we only hire the top students and graduates from local colleges in the area. Each one of our well-trained tutors specializes in at least one area of expertise and is eager to aid in the academic success of the students they tutor. Frog Tutors are not just intelligent individuals, but role models who inspire their students to achieve success both academically and personally. - See more at: http://frogtutoring.com/about_us#sthash.ov47ISCO.dpuf
