I am a graduate from Stanford University, currently pursuing a Doctorate in Physical Therapy at UCSF. Since I can remember, I have loved working with students to promote education and inspire others to get excited about learning. In high school I tutored classmates in Algebra and AP Spanish. At Stanford, I participated in a variety of community enrichment programs, including a mentoring and tutoring program for middle school students in East Palo Alto, and serving as an interpreter and health educator in a local free clinic. While at Stanford, I also had the opportunity to work abroad in Ecuador, where I planned educational activities for working children in Quito, and in South Africa volunteering at an HIV clinic. Now, in graduate school, I am a teacher assistant in Physiology for Physical Therapy and Pharmacy students.
I am originally from Uruguay, and moved to California when I was 15 years old. The challenge of trying to succeed in school while learning English and adapting to a new culture, helped me become a more empathetic and understanding tutor and mentor. I believe that hard work pays off, and anyone can succeed academically with the right amount of motivation and support. As a tutor, I consider it my job not only to assist students in their learning, but also to motivate and inspire them to always do their very best.
In addition to being a professional student, I enjoy swimming, water polo, tennis, and painting.
