I am a graduate of the University of a Southern California. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts with a minor in Film and Animation. I then returned to USC to get my Master's in Secondary Education with a focus on English and Art. Since graduation, I have taught English at the largest charter school in the nation, including ESL students, emerging learners, College Prep. classes, as well as Honors and AP students. I also was a coach for two teams and a club advisor for a community-service based club. As a former teacher and now a tutor, I am most passionate about English and Fine Arts. In my experience, helping students to improve their reading and writing skills through a hands-on approach has been my favorite and most effective means of improving their skills. Allowing students to see my own thought-processes, and then guiding students as they work through an assignment is the best way to allow a child to see what is helping him versus what is hindering him. I am a firm supporter of building a love for literacy and an appreciation for the humanities, as having a strong foundation in reading and writing can help a student succeed in any field. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, drawing, the theatre, traveling, and anything having to do with The United Kingdom.
