Tutor in Newbury Park, California
my name is Helena. I am a high school graduate, university-bound (Princeton University) student looking for extra income. I am extremely energetic, fun, loving, kind, helpful, and intelligent.
Although I may still be young, I know that I am qualified to act as a tutor on many levels. I am experienced in almost any subject area (Math, English, French, the Sciences, history, etc.) and I love teaching. I am patient, yet driven; energetic, yet calm; loving, yet stern when needed.
To tell you a little bit about myself, my family moved from Belgium when I was about 9 years old. I did not know English upon my arrival, and I struggled to understand the simplest words and phrases thrown at me at school by unknowing students and teachers who didn't know how to interact properly with me yet. It was a stressful experience for me, but shortly after having made the transition, my English had already improved dramatically. Perhaps it was that I was at a critical age, or perhaps it was my zeal and perseverance. Within 6 months, I was for the most part fluent. Now, 9 years later, I plan to pursue a degree in English. That said, I am fluent in Flemish (a dialect of Dutch) and English, as well as nearly fluent in French.
I know that I can help you and be your tutor, as well as friend. Please give me the chance to prove this.
Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you might have.
