I attended Stephens College, where I maintained a 3.96 grade point average, and obtained my Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Digital Filmmaking. While taking the required courses for my degree, I also took numerous creative writing, philosophy, math and theater courses. During this time I also worked in the Academic Resource Center as a tutor. Most of my clients would either bring in papers for me to proof read, ask for assistance doing research and structuring their papers, or seek help studying for exams.

Since graduating, I have moved to the greater Los Angeles area and worked as a tutor under the "No Child Left Behind Act," educating youth from 2nd to 12th grade in both Math and English Language Arts. I also work as a residential counselor in a group home for homeless teens ages 12-17. Part of my job at the group home includes helping these youth catch up with their academics and assisting them with homework.

Throughout my experiences as a tutor, I have found it is important to make education enjoyable. I have discovered that clients retain more information if they are having fun while they are learning because education becomes a hobby and not a chore. I have also found that it is important to identify the way in which a client best retains information early on, so that sessions can be structured to meet these needs. Some people learn through visual aids, others through repetition, and others through auditory stimulation. Some people find it easier to color code things when organizing a paper, while others make lists. Once we identify what works best, moving forward is a snap!

In my spare time I enjoy watching films, writing, hiking, exercising and reading. I am always looking for new experiences and taking time to enjoy the small things life has to offer.
