I have been tutoring since high school, when I was selected for a pilot program, through which Junior and Senior students were paired with lower classmates to help improve their writing skills. Afterward, in college, I helped run an after school program for middle school children in downtown Los Angeles.
In 2013 I graduated from UCLA with a major in English literature and minors in both French and Latin. I now work as an instructor for children with developmental disorders, using applied behavioral analysis therapy to decrease their maladaptive behaviors and increase behaviors that will help them to be successful in life. I love my job and working with children of all ages and will soon be applying to a Masters of Science program in clinical psychology.
My past experience and current work have taught me that any student can learn any material no matter what her environmental, social, medical or academic background. In fact, my philosophy is to evaluate all of these factors and use them to determine the student’s strengths so that I can tailor my teaching to her learning style. This method works fantastically with my current students, many of whom have significant barriers to overcome beyond academics.
