Biography

I. SUMMARY OF TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My teaching experience stems primarily from the following two professional endeavors: an internship managing a branch for IvyInsiders that focused on the SAT I exam and part-time ESL instruction for an international CRO at which I also held a full-time position. I also tutored privately on a number of occasions while studying at Princeton - relevant topics included the verbal and writing sections of the SAT I exam, college essay composition, middle school English, and AP level English.

II. PERFORMANCE METRICS - IVYINSIDERS

My classroom students improved by an average of 120 points per subject, from 590 to 710. (Please be advised I was unable to filter the numbers by subject; in addition, these figures include classroom courses taught by a tutor I hired.) I also provided one-on-one tutoring sessions for 2 additional students, focusing on the SAT I verbal and writing sections; their scores grew by an average of 130 points per subject, from 630 to 760. Notable schools attended by my students include UPenn, NYU Stern, and Georgetown.

III. TEACHING STYLE/PERSONAL STATEMENT

Whether teaching a classroom or tutoring one-on-one sessions, I learned that connecting with and engaging your students is of utmost important. IvyInsiders provided a curriculum that encouraged participation and fostered a "beat-the-test" mentality that many of my students appreciated. On top of that, I frequently tried to apply the strategies I taught to relatable, everyday scenarios, sprinkling in some humor where I could. During my one-on-one tutoring sessions, I would allow my students to apply newly-learned reading comprehension techniques to magazine articles they were interested in. This was especially effective when I later tutored AP level English and college essay composition.

As a teacher, I believe my personality and ability to engage students is what sets me apart. As a marketing professional at GENEWIZ, I had the opportunity to structure and teach an ESL class for the Chinese employees. I applied much of what I learned from my previous experience to constructing this course: for example, to help improve my students' oral English, I focused on interesting (and sometimes controversial) video content to drive interest and facilitate discussion. In addition, I scheduled occasional field trips (for Chinese trainees in the USA) to provide more interesting environments for them to practice their skills.

In conclusion, I have experienced firsthand the importance of establishing trust and encouraging engagement to effective teaching. Even as a student, I gained an avid appreciation for the teachers that made me truly care about the topics they taught. Here, I'd like to invoke one of my favorite quotes: "Is it what the teacher teaches, or what the student learns?" In order to align the two, both parties must be on the same page.
