"...China. From teaching Critical Analytical Writing and English 101, to researching the Interaction of English, Portuguese, Mandarin, and Cantonese in Higher Education at the University of Macau, to establishing an “English Festival”—a six day series of events providing students with English exposure opportunities and activities, to participating in daily “Tea Time” conversational sessions, to editing official university literature, and even providing individualized English language sessions to professors, my time abroad was filled with various tutoring, teaching, and academic experiences. Currently, as part of the faculty of the Searching for Education, Elevation and Knowledge (SEEK) Program at Hunter College, City University of New York, I continue to interact with students in various ways. I instruct the Summer Bridge Program’s Intensive Writing Lab where I have the opportunity to have one on one teaching and tutoring sessions with students..."

"...Later, I moved on to tutoring students in a more structured environment in subjects involving biology, physics, and more advanced mathematics such as calculus. Although I do follow a very straightforward curriculum, my teaching style is more adaptive than it is rigid. Private tutoring offers the benefit of sitting down one-on-one with a student so that I can zero in on problem areas and misunderstood concepts..."

"...To me, written expression is one of the greatest art forms, one that requires mastery of everything from vocabulary and punctuation to grammar and structural organization. The flip side of writing, of course, is reading. There is nothing like being able to read a passage and truly grasp its meaning...whether you are looking for information, enlightenment, or something in between..."
