I am a graduate of UC Santa Cruz with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. As a college student I tutored Spanish literacy to Spanish-speaking children, and English as a second language to Hebrew-speaking teens as well as Hebrew-speaking adults with developmental disabilities. Upon graduating I led educational workshops and skill-building classes for adults with mental illness for a year and a half. For the past four years I have been coordinating an early literacy program at UCLA. In this position I teach undergrads about child development, leadership, and teaching, and then support them throughout the year as they help preschool children learn early reading and writing skills.
I love learning and I strive to make teaching an engaging and interactive experience, centered around what the student is genuinely interested in. I want the experience to be about more than just getting a good grade, but about developing a deep understanding that can be applied creatively and effectively in a variety of settings. While I tutor a wide variety of subjects, my favorite things to tutor are Writing and Literature. I love to help students analyze and think critically about text and ideas, and to ultimately develop and articulate their own opinions.
In my spare time I enjoy riding my bicycle, yoga, painting, and cooking.
