I am finishing up my third year of law school at Michigan, but am currently living in Taos, New Mexico for a semester externship in environmental law. Before law school, I worked in Cochabamba, Bolivia with an organization of women's construction cooperatives on issues related to child care, nutrition, occupational health, and gender empowerment. Prior to that, I worked as a postgraduate fellow in D.C., where I focused on children's environmental health issues. I received my Masters of Public Health (MPH) at the University of California, Berkeley School of Public Health in 2013. Before that, I spent a year in AmeriCorps Community HealthCorps of Northern California, designing and conducting health and science education and career mentoring programs for k-12 students in beautiful Mendocino County. As an undergraduate student at the University of Oklahoma, I studied biology, Latin American studies, and Spanish, and was also a music performance major (french horn and piano) for a while before deciding to pursue music in a more relaxed, avocational setting through community orchestras. As someone with a diverse array of interests who spent a lot of time figuring out how to combine and pursue all of them in the way that fit my goals and skill set best, I am really excited about not only tutoring subject matter, but also helping others think through what they are passionate about and how to pursue it! I also have a genuine appreciation for a variety of subjects and hope to convey that enthusiasm to my students! I have previously taught and tutored formally for numerous standardized tests, and have also worked with middle and high school students on everything from music theory and performance to math, study skills, college preparation, science, ESL, and writing/editing. While I thoroughly enjoy tutoring a wide variety of subjects, I have a particular affinity for tutoring biology, writing, and Spanish. I think that biology can be really fascinating if taught in a way that instills a sense of curiosity and of relevance to our daily lives, and I really enjoy seeing students make connections and ask important questions about how intricate biological processes relate to their broader worlds. In Spanish and writing, I greatly appreciate helping students open up new avenues for communicating, be it in an academic arena through an essay, a creative arena through prose, or an entirely new community or country through mastery of a second language. I am also excited about LSAT tutoring, as I recently took the exam and developed good study habits and strategies for success myself. I feel that education, and tutoring in particular, provides the opportunity to be part of a positive feedback cycle, instilling not only greater knowledge and mastery of a particular subject, but also enhanced confidence and enthusiasm, both for the subject matter and overall, which in turn leads to better academic performance and perpetuates increased confidence levels. I enjoy building a rapport with students that allows us to work collectively to find ways to make any subject matter resonate with their interests and goals!
