I first learned Spanish as a child from my family and began studying it formally in high school. I majored in Spanish in college, and subsequently earned my teaching credential. I also strongly believe that tutoring matters. My tutor in elementary and high school made an immeasurable impact on my success in school and my love of learning. One of my favorite aspects of tutoring is watching students achieve their own goals.
Outside of teaching, I love reading and music. I have been singing in choirs since I was in elementary school and really enjoy making music with friends. A few years ago I even had the opportunity to sing with my choir at Carnegie Hall in New York City. I also sometimes sing for special events such as weddings and quinceañeras. As far as reading goes, my favorite genres are fantasy and historical fiction.
