Thuy P. Truong

English Instructor & 

Executive Function Coach 

"Even though she is so good at professionalism, she does not forget to humanize it and connects with students at a personal level to help them further and make them more comfortable.  I remember when I was going through a difficult situation academically and emotionally, she encouraged me not to drop courses and work harder. She tried to talk to me and understand me like a friend, helped me understand what I needed to correct and genuinely showed care and concern."

My name is Thuy ( pronounced Twee) Truong.   I am the daughter of an immigrant family who dreams of books and loves the academic journey with all students.  I am also a certified, trilingual educator with 15 years experience teaching and coaching students from middle school to university level.  I graduated summa cum laude in English and Secondary Education at Arizona State University with a merit scholarship to honor my parents.  While teaching high school English full-time as a credentialed teacher and taking care of my mother, I also completed my Master’s in Educational Administration and Supervision.  For me, knowledge is beauty.  

 

My higher education career began with advising and coaching, but soon after I was invited to teach English in Boston at Wheelock College and Urban College of Boston working with diverse learners for almost 5 years.   I also built Wheelock's international student advising office from scratch and ran it for 4 years.   After relocating to Northern California, I also developed and taught university success workshops at San Jose State University.  I also designed the Executive Function Curriculum for Meyers Learning Center and taught English at all levels.   I have more than a decade of  experience working with students with learning differences (ADD/ADHD, Autism, Anxiety, Dysgraphia, Dyslexia and beyond).  To pursue my passion, I also completed training on Americans with Disabilities Act with Syracuse University.

THE 

TEACHER

THAT I AM 

I am one who notices when the student’s voice seems different.  I see the sparkle of light in the students’ eyes when their confidence goes up.  I like to remember what my students said yesterday because that might be the cool idea for my next lesson.  I love igniting students' imagination and passion for learning.  My favorite part is helping students find themselves because that moment is magic.  

 

I look forward to unlocking the magic within all students!
