I received my AA in Philosophy from Cabrillo College. I began studying Business at Foothill College in preparation for transferring to Menlo College, where I am currently pursuing a B.S. in Management Information Systems. I plan to later obtain a Master's and teaching credential.
My tutoring experience is primarily with friends and relatives. I love helping people learn and understand information so that they can succeed. While most of my experience is in tutoring high level Sciences and Mathematics, I take the greatest joy in tutoring Literature and Writing, where the freedom of the written word allows me to better understand the students that I am working with. I also enjoy helping students learn how to approach standardized tests intelligently and efficiently.
My approach to tutoring is strategic. I help students develop techniques that work for them to read, remember, or reinforce the knowledge they gain in class. Through reinforcement and clarification, I help students reach a point where they can explain concepts in their own words.
In my spare time, I am an avid reader of both History and Fiction. I also enjoy video games, tabletop games, writing, and hiking.
