I am currently a graduate student at Point Loma Nazarene University working towards my Masters in Teaching and Learning. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Washington majoring in Communications and minoring in Spanish. While studying at the undergraduate level, I studied abroad in Spain to further my knowledge of the Spanish culture and language. I also spend my summers working as an Assistant Program Director at a summer camp for orphan children in Mexico. I have a passion for teaching and I love sharing that passion with students. I believe that all students are capable of success and it is simply a matter of finding the right path for each student. Another one of my passions is writing. As a student, essays can be challenging and sometimes overwhelming. I love calming students and their fears about essays, guiding them through the writing process by pulling information out of them that was already there to begin with. As an educator and a tutor, I strive to transform information into something understandable and appetizing to the learner. Regurgitating information is simply not enough. We only truly learn when we can take the information out of context and apply it to different situations. Every person learns in a different way and every student deserves a comprehensible education.
