I am a graduate of San Diego State University. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Comparative Literature, as well as, my CA Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I have many years of experience with children of all ages. Starting in high school, I volunteered at various places including a daycare, a library, and multiple classrooms. I thoroughly enjoyed leading and assisting children in a variety of activities. I had the wonderful opportunity to teach 2nd grade at a private school in San Diego for three years. My most memorable experiences were the moments I spent teaching one-on-one or in small groups. I also spent afternoons after school to tutor my students in reading and math. I was more than happy to devote extra time to my students because I feel, as a teacher, it is my passion to reach all of my students by meeting their unique needs. I believe in using various techniques to tailor instruction to the needs of my students in order to encourage and motivate them to reach their goals. I tutor all elementary subjects, ISEE prep, Literature, and Essay Editing. My passion and specialty is teaching reading. My goal is to instill a love for reading in my students because books allow for discoveries, imaginative thoughts, and new ideas. Aside from teaching, I have a deep passion for enjoying life to the fullest. I love to go for walks, especially to coffee shops, strolling along the boardwalk at the beach, and of course, reading. I enjoy reading all types of books, but my favorites include biographies and realistic fiction.
