I was born and raised in Mexico City. I studied Chemistry in UNAM (Mexico National University) where I got my Licenciatura degree (that means, I studied Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics for four and a half years). After my graduation, I worked as a researcher for projects related to environmental chemistry. Then I became a high school teacher (in Mexico). Seven years ago my family moved to California; last year I finished the teaching credential program at Cal State San Marcos. I got my credential to teach Chemistry and soon will be able to add Spanish. I have the Bilingual Authorization as well. I have been tutoring students since I was a college student, mainly Chemistry. I believe that all students have the ability to learn, but sometimes the knowledge needs to be presented in a different way; not all students are the same, so why do they all need to learn the same way? In my free time I like to do ceramics (pottery) an artistic way of using Chemistry and knit, but the thing that I like the most is traveling Ive traveled to many interesting places, trying to meet new people, new cultures, and trying to use the languages that I speak (Spanish, English, French, Hebrew, and Yiddish).
