I have practice teaching ESL students, from middle school to adult level, through private tutoring, group tutoring, and classroom lessons. I always focus on making English exciting and applicable, by teaching lessons through activities, English news, informal conversations about culture, food, family, and much more.

About Meghana K.

I'm Meghana! I'm a student at UC Berkeley planning to major in economics and mathematics. I hope to eventually pursue a career as a high school teacher. My tutoring philosophy is to emphasize a growth mindset: I want to teach students that making mistakes is not just okay, but essential to learning and that it's the process of learning, not the immediate result that matters. I hope to make classes a safe environment where students feel comfortable asking questions and taking risks, even if they make mistakes.

I have experience tutoring a wide range of students, from early elementary to high school students. Through high school, I volunteered in an elementary school "Sunday-learning program" to teach Math, Science and English to kindergarten to 3rd graders. I also have experience volunteering as an English tutor for ELD students in high school, and a science and math tutor for middle school students.

As the lead math tutor in the math explorers program in San Jose library, I led 20 students through interactive math activities and I know how to make math fun and break complex subjects down to make them easy to understand.

Finally, I was a teaching intern last summer, and taught 2 classes of prealgebra to incoming 7th graders, an elective course, and a study hall (small group tutoring) full time. As a teaching intern, I taught formal summer middle school math classes of 15-students each, writing my own lesson plans, creating and grading homework assignments, leading daily lessons, and working students one-on-one. I received rigorous training on effective teaching strategies, lesson-planning, and communication skills. I also tutored students one-on-one in Math, English, and Science during my internship during study hall, so I have experience not just teaching math, but in all the core subjects.

As a private tutor, I teach all core subjects, but have particular experience teaching math, physics, and english.

Please contact me to schedule our first lesson! I can do homework help, general tutoring, or help you get ahead/learn new things in the summer.
