I absolutely love teaching. I have been a teacher for 10 years, and I currently teach at a wonderful project-based high school in Pomona, CA where I integrate art and music into the variety of courses I teach. I have extensive experience in History, Math, English, English Language Development, and SAT prep among other subjects, but my specialty is in motivating students. I believe it is essential for a student to enjoy our tutoring sessions. I build on every success, small or large, with lots of praise, and I correct students' mistakes without judgment. Watching the light bulb come on in my student's head at that moment of understanding is priceless to me.
I am also an avid snowboarder and certified snowboard instructor in the winter. When I am not on my local mountain, I enjoy basketball, volleyball, electronic music, and dancing, and I have recently begun to dabble with deejaying. I have a young personality that my students can easily relate to, but with the experience of a veteran teacher.
