Hello, my name is Andrew and I am a San Diego native. I received my BA in English from CSULB and decided to stay in Long Beach after graduating. I eventually made my way back to San Diego, and after working for a number of years in the logistics field I decided to take a TESL/TEFL certificate course at CSUSM. After completing this program I wanted to teach English to adults, so I worked part time as a classroom facilitator and instructor for the American Language Institute at CSUSM. In August 2018, I received my Master's in TESOL from Alliant International University. I enjoy spending time with my wife, reading, watching movies, listening to music, going to the beach and staying active.
Hi! My name is Zahra, and I’m currently a transfer student at SDSU. Although I'm an engineering major, I have always loved English and writing. As a San Diego native, I enjoy all things outdoors, especially trips to the beach. In my free time, I like watching movies, shopping, and spending time with friends and family. I am excited to meet and work with all of you this semester!

Hello! My name is Jiyun Lee and I am so thrilled to work as a tutor at Miramar College. I moved to San Diego in 2011. After earning a Bachelor's degree in English Language and Literature, I worked with adult ESL students. My desire to become a teacher inspired me to enroll in a TESOL program, and I recently graduated from Alliant International University with a Master's degree in TESOL. My teaching approach focuses on the employment of authentic materials and technology in language learning through a variety of communicative activities. I enjoy traveling, reading, watching movies, and working out at the gym. Most of all, I like spending time with my husband and two energetic children. I also love to take a walk with my dog. I look forward to meeting all of you in The WELL!
I am from San Diego and attended Miramar College for several years before transferring to SDSU, where I attained a BA with distinction in History. Although I have studied numerous regions, eras, themes, and topics across the last five thousand years, I focus on the eternal power struggle between social classes over control of production and resources. Currently, I am enrolled in a History master’s program at SDSU where my research focuses on American imperialism. Besides history, I also love running, swimming, literature, rock music, philosophy, exploring and adventuring in the great outdoors, cooking, politics, woodworking, and thinking. Writing has always been a challenging and rewarding process for me and I hope to help others become more effective writers.
Hello Miramar College students! My name is John and I am very excited to be working as a tutor in The WELL. I am originally from New York and moved to San Diego in 1998. Recently, I lived in Taipei, Taiwan for almost five years and then New York City for a year. In both these cities I was an ESL and TOEFL test prep instructor. I have a BA in Economics/Business Administration from University at Albany (in Upstate New York) and my TESOL Certificate through St. John's University. I am currently researching options in pursuing a Master's degree in TESOL. When I'm not working I like to read, take walks and hikes, do yoga, go to the gym, and spend time with my friends. I hope to see you in The WELL at Miramar College.
Hello, Miramar College! I'm Rebecca, a College Reading & Learning Association (CRLA) Master Level 3 writing tutor. The most important things for you to know about me are that I love tutoring and that community colleges are my favorite places to work. I became a writing tutor at UMass Boston and realized soon after that I wanted to pursue a career in learning assistance. In addition to tutoring, I have coordinated tutoring programs at two universities, most recently at San José State, and taught college reading and composition courses. I completed a Bachelor’s in sociology from Brandeis University, a Master’s in English literature from UMass Boston, and a post-Master’s in developmental education from Boston University. These qualifications might make me sound kind of fancy, but I am actually a pretty down-to-earth person. I hope you will come by the WELL this semester. I am looking forward to meeting you!
