Jenny Babermurrayhilltutor@aol.com503-998-8457


Introduction: I am a certified teacher who has tutored privately and in a professional learning center for the past twenty years. I received my teaching degree for Indiana University and have taught in Indiana, Ohio, and Oregon school districts.

I have gained valuable experience from tutoring in learning centers and school districts. I incorporate my knowledge and and curriculum in my private tutoring/class sessions. Nothing can take the place of enrichment classes to give your child the extra edge he/she needs for school success.

I have experience with SAT/ACT, IOWA, OAKS, HSPT, SMARTER BALANCED and Cogat testing. I also edit student essays. Enrolling your student in enrichment classes is great way to maintain a student's positive outlook on his/her studies while at the same time improving specific skills.

Introduction: My name is Ryan Doucet, I studied sports and recreation administration at the University of Mississippi. During my time, i spent many hours volunteering and working with all sorts of people, most specifically children and seniors.

Zhijun Leileizhijun@gmail.com503-290-9507PDXRunner


Education: Ph.D Computer Science and Engineering

Introduction: I have been working as an engineer for about 15 years with many high tech companies in the semiconductor industry, and with Intel for the last 10 years. My main job function involves researching and designing various algorithms and hardware modules for video compression in Intel CPU.

Outside my main job, I am interested in outdoor activities, such as long distance running and hiking, etc. Currently I am also serving as a board member of the Tech for Kids club and I am interested in teaching and tutoring kids for various computer science Classes, such as programming, algorithms, etc. My teaching philosophy is that a good tutor should focus on teaching not only the course material itself, but also the thought process and learning approaches to enable kids to be able to learn independently.

During past teaching experience, I have been constantly observing children’s learning habit and seeking their feedback to adjust my teaching style. I believe keeping children interested and engaged is the foundation for learning any topics.

Hee Weon Parkhpark@lclark.edu


Introduction: My name is Hee Weon Park, and I am a third year law student at Lewis & Clark Law School.

To briefly explain my educational background, my B.A. is in English literature and political science, and my M.A. is in English linguistics. I have extensive experience as a private tutor teaching English for over 8 years, and also was an active debater myself during my undergraduate years. I served as a treasurer and president for the varsity debate team at Ewha Woman's University during which I participated in numerous international and domestic debating competitions both as a debater and an adjudicator.

My strength as a debate coach is quite unique. As a firm believer of positive enforcement, I focus on amplifying each student's strength rather than "correcting" his/her mistakes. With proper approach, debating can not only be educational, but also enjoyable. My goal is to help students find interest in debating and ultimately develop professional debating skills.

As all debaters say, "Once a debater, always a debater." I am truly excited to share my experience with students and introduce them to a whole new world of debating. I look forward to meeting you all. Thank you.
