I am a graduate of the University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA where I received two Bachelors of Arts degrees in 2011. One of my degrees was in International Relations and Global Studies with a minor in Anthropology, and my second degree was in Spanish Language and Literature. Once I graduated, I moved back to Southern California in order to pursue work in the legal field with the ultimate goal of attending law school. I worked for a year between two separate law firms in the greater Los Angeles area as a Law Clerk and tutored high school students in LA's South Bay. I specialized in a wide range of subjects to fit my clients' needs, however, I am most passionate about teaching skills for Writing, Reading, Grammar, and Spanish. In my opinion, languages, both those that we are native to and new ones we wish to acquire, are fascinating but also take a lot of work to stay fresh. I understand the struggles many students face while grappling with reading and writing in English, and I especially understand the difficulties of mastering Spanish, as it is not my native tongue. I have found that this understanding helps me to be a more creative and thus effective tutor and leads to positive results with my clients. Last year, I moved to Orange County to begin my first year as a law student at UC Irvine School of Law. I am now in my second year at the law school and feel, if anything, I am even better suited to tutor new clients. Apart from school and tutoring, I enjoy being outdoors with my new puppy, training for and participating in triathlons, travel, photography, and attending country concerts.
