" I enjoy teaching because it is the best feeling in the world when you finally see the students “get” what has been taught. I teach from a student driven point, meaning the students have to find the answer and can’t get away with “I don’t know." I also make sure the student has ways to remember what was taught using pneumonics. The spare time that I do have allows me to relax by making a quilt or going to the field to play some paintball. On the weekends, you can typically find me at Disneyland or out riding my bike."

" During my undergraduate years, I further developed my abilities in music and Spanish. I credit my strong academic background for my extremely well-developed writing, test-taking, and study skills.

"I have always enjoyed math, but I chose to study English because I'm a sucker for good storytelling. I began tutoring during high school when an underclassman's parents asked me to help their son review the material for his algebra class. In college and graduate school, my friends would ask me to proofread their papers or clarify some of the topics from our classes. After my studies, I returned to my old high school as a substitute teacher where I spent a semester teaching algebra and geometry classes and directing the school play."
