I am currently an undergraduate student at the University of Texas at Dallas, where I am simultaneously pursuing a B.S. in Psychology and a B.S. in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology. I have taught adult ESL classes for nearly two years as part of a volunteer program at my school, which has given me a strong background in education and organizational skills. I am a fluent speaker of English, Spanish, and Portuguese, and I am in the process of learning Mandarin Chinese. Being an avid reader and learner of languages, my most passionate tutoring subjects are SAT Critical Reading, SAT Writing, Spanish, and general writing/grammar skills. My approach to tutoring emphasizes improving studying and test-taking skills, as well as guiding students to their own, genuine understandings of the material at hand through thought-provoking questions and engagement in critical thinking, as opposed to rote learning techniques. In my free time, I enjoy reading, biking, listening to music, and cooking.
