I am a graduate of the University of Colorado, where I received a Bachelors of Arts with a degree in Anthropology. Shortly after graduating, I earned a TEFL certification from the TEFL University in Chicago. Currently, I am pursuing a Masters of Special Education through Regis University. I took a few years off between undergrad and grad school to get some hands on experience with teaching. In that time, I worked as a teacher at a day program for adults with cognitive and developmental disabilities. In this role I was able to create class curriculum and implement daily class plans, which engaged students with a multitude of learning styles. I also had the opportunity to work as an instructor for a program teaching young children outdoor skills and sports such as rock climbing and kayaking. This position was particularly rewarding because it allowed me to develop strong skills as an experiential educator. After working in both fields as an educator, I believe that all students have the ability to be successful and love learning. I aim to offer students robust learning opportunities so that they may choose a method of learning that best enables them. I think that learning should be a fun and personally rewarding experience for each student. I hope to promote a love of education within each student I tutor.
