Tiffany Lien loves working with students of all ages. She earned a B.S. in Business Administration with emphasis in Management, and upon graduation joined a high-tech company working in its Human Resources Department. After a short while she decided to exercise her adventurous side by moving to Europe and becoming a high school teacher at a public Hungarian high school. Tiffany accepted the daunting task of teaching English conversation to students with minimal English language knowledge. Despite initial conversation barriers, the students were a joy, and Tiffany developed a passion for teaching.
Returning to her native San Diego after two years, Tiffany continued her career in education by teaching secondary English literature, writing and grammar, and Speech and Journalism at a prestigious private school. She also served as a youth group leader and camp counselor for a large local church. Pausing her career to raise her 3 children (affectionately called her “3-ring circus”), Tiffany has embarked on a new but related direction of serving students throughout San Diego County by operating a Tutor Doctor franchise with her husband.
Their primary goal is to help students who have “slipped through the cracks” of the traditional education system by matching them with tutors of the highest quality. These “academic coaches” help students identify and develop missing learning “building blocks”, solid study skills, and time-management and life skills to ensure the gains made during tutoring become permanent. Tiffany’s passion for teaching and helping others is also evident by her regular volunteer teaching of courses and programs for all ages, from preschoolers to seniors.
