"I started out in school as a Biology major, then switched to Chemistry with a Spanish minor. When I finished with the classes for the Spanish minor and was taking solely Chemistry classes, I realized how much Spanish had become a part of me and how I deeply missed it, so I switched my degree, yet again, to Spanish. I have always had a passion helping students do better in school. I ultimately want to be a high school teacher.."

" I will never get tired of witnessing those “a-ha!” moments in my students. Helping a student understand a concept or simply soliciting a smile out of him or her is sometimes all the encouragement a teacher needs. I pride myself on having a positive attitude and confront most situations with a smile. I firmly believe that when you change your mindset you can change the world. I can easily adapt to varying situations and have done so many times in my life."

" As a result, I have learned how to identify students' learning styles, and most importantly, how to make unpleasant topics interesting -- or at least less unpleasant. Moreover, I have experienced the frustration and the struggles many students face in different subjects. In college as a music major, general math requirements were the bane of my existence. I had to retake classes and attend tutoring sessions myself. But eventually, I discovered how to tackle it, and down the road, chose to stick with the math and study economics.

"My teaching style is to break down complex tasks into smaller pieces so that the final concept can be understood at every stage. I believe that the best way to learn a new type of problem is to relate it to something you already know how to do.
