I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the University of California, Riverside and a dual Master of Arts in English and Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Chapman University in Orange, California. In between studies, I began my experience as a tutor for the “No Child Left Behind” program tutoring students K-8 in Reading and Language Arts in order to help them improve study habits and standardized test scores in a one-on-one setting.
Upon entering graduate school at Chapman University, I began working as an English tutor for the writing center on campus. I worked one-on-one with undergraduates and graduate students of various majors in order to ensure their writing assignments (short and long papers, theses, resumes, and personal statements) were following the given prompts.
I tutor any category related to the field of English—Reading, Writing (both academic and creative), Literature, and Language Arts. My favorite subject to tutor is writing because my belief, from personal experience, is that fostering a strong and confident authorial voice is of the utmost importance for a student and it becomes applicable to all career choices one might make. In my spare time, my hobbies tend to include things that continue to foster my own authorial voice and those around me – writing music and poetry, publishing a literary zine, reading leisurely, and watching films.
