    My first child took online classes from Céline before Covid-19 era. What was really surprising is that the kid loved Céline's class so much and looked forward to her class. It is already 80% successful that children like their teachers and enjoy their class time. Since then, Céline has never canceled or postponed classes. She taught the class diligently. So it's natural that I would recommend her class to my second child as well as his friends. I am so grateful for Céline's help.

    Céline is very knowledgeable and experienced. My daughter is very shy but Céline is so pleasant she made my daughter feel comfortable immediately. She makes her lessons interesting so it does not feels like an extension of school work. My daughter enjoys her time learning and improving her English/Language with Céline. Céline is also flexible and very responsive. I am very pleased I found Céline to help with my daughter’s tutoring needs. I highly recommend Céline if you need a responsible and dependable tutor.

    Celine came highly recommended by a friend and we have been very happy with her. My daughter is in third grade and her math skills are good, but she was starting to lack confidence in math class. Having someone to work with one-on-one has really helped. It’s not just math drills; they usually work on equations to start, take a little break with some games, and then move on to story problems. They work together for 30 minutes, and then Celine sends a couple of worksheets to be completed by the next week’s session. We started working with Celine in the summer, so she has been working on general 3rd grade math skills, but recently we connected her with my daughter’s teacher, to personalize the lessons more. My daughter is shy around other people, especially adults, but she seemed comfortable with Celine right away, even asking Celine if she could read her a short story that she wrote! This speaks volumes to me about how open and friendly Celine is. We would highly recommend Celine!

    Céline is a phenomenal tutor who is able to get into my daughters world with ease and keep her attention focused even in distance learning mode. As most parents will tell you this can be a quite the feat of achievement for a child elementary age. 😆 Céline is always able to pull My daughters attention to the points of the lesson while relating to her interests. My daughter is very picky about her tutors but adores Céline and has requested many times to even have additional tutoring time with Céline. She is punctual, flexible and provides appropriate work when needed to continue lessons outside of sessions. During this time of distance learning and uncertainty in the classroom and stability we feel so lucky to have someone like Céline in our corner.




FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

When working with new students, I like to assess their goals and aspirations. I ask about the following:

1) How are classes conducted?

2) What do you find useful or not useful in school?

3) What do you find difficult or easy in the class?

4) How are tests structured? (

I also like to get an idea of their learning style (how their classes are conducted, what they find useful or not useful, what do they wish was different about the class, etc.). I try to be flexible according to the needs of the students.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I obtained a double degree in Chinese and History at the University of California, Davis, and I've also taken intensive summer school and extension classes at University of California, Berkeley. I was also a Division 1 student athlete a UC Davis, so I understand the pressure and the expectations in the life of athletes pursuing higher degrees. In high school, I tutored elementary school students in math and reading comprehension. After I graduated college, I had the amazing opportunity to be granted a TA position at UC Davis despite not being a graduate student. I loved TAing at UC Davis and it gave me great professional experience in higher education.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Prices vary based on services needed. I use hourly pay rates, and I offer discounts for group lessons. 


How did you get started teaching?

My teaching began in high school mostly. I was a teacher's assistant in middle school and in high school, but my experience working in a classroom and interacting with students came from volunteer work at one of my local elementary schools when I was in high school. I interacting with more tutors in college and learned more through their techniques. I've also assisted classmates with subject material, such as college essay-writing. My real-time paid job as a "teacher" was at UC Davis. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with a wide variety of students, including athletes, students with learning disabilities, elementary school children, college students and foreign-exchange students.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Students should look for teachers who have a lot of energy, flexibility and patience. I think having an easy-going attitude is very important because while students may be stressed out about their grades or performance, it's first and foremost important to stay calm, collected and level-headed when approaching anything. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Explain the situation. (Tell your story. Explain your thoughts or concerns regarding your academics right now.) 

Have a clear idea about your goals. (Where do you wish to go with your academics? What do you hope to achieve?)

Understand your strengths and weaknesses. (What do you do well with? What do you struggle with?) 

Explain your learning preferences. (What in the classroom works for you? What doesn't work?) 

Explain the format of your tests. (How does your teacher format tests? What's challenging?)
