Tutors ages K-12
My name is Jannette!
I graduated from California State University, Long Beach with a
Bachelor of Science in Finance. During my college years I was part of the Equal Opportunity Program and Leadership
After college, I worked in the corporate world where
I utilized my degree. But I have learned that I am most happy when I am able to teach and help someone
understand what was once foreign to them. I find joy when children light up with excitement when they are able to
I was introduced to tutoring when I was 7 years old due to the fact
that out of all the children in my school, I was the only Vietnamese speaker. I was inspired by my own experiences
of receiving help from tutors. I know from my personal experience how it feels to learn something
new, and how great it feels to discover one's own capabilities through the help of a tutor.
When I realized all of this and got the hang of learning myself, I helped
everyone throughout school! But I never thought about working as a tutor until I started working for
Long Beach Unified School District as a College Aid. Then, I noticed that there were many students who were
struggling in their classes and were at risk of being kicked out of a program. So I began tutoring
through the A.C.E. Program - and I loved it!
During my education, my main focus was always Math until I started
working at the school district. Since then, I've had a wide range of tutoring experiences. One summer I
was teaching 6th-8th grade, preparing them to take the Oxford and Whitney Academy Placement Test. Later, I
taught students from 1st-5th grade in general elementary subjects to prepare them for the next
I've also worked as an SAT Math Instructor, teaching the Math curriculum to
all the upcoming juniors to prepare them for their SAT Exam.
My favorite thing about being an educator is that it is very
rewarding! Especially when a student begins to LOVE learning and they realize how easy it can
Learning should never be boring! So I do what I can to
make learning fun and enjoyable for my students. I believe that everyone is smart and talented in their own way. It
is how we teach and talk to children that make the biggest difference in a
student's ability to learn."
