I am a graduate of the University of Miami, where I majored in Psychology and English, with a focus in Creative Writing, and minored in Art. As a student, I was employed through America Reads. I worked individually with a kindergarten classroom of both special needs and neurotypical students, working with each child to develop a program that was both fun and effective in helping them overcome deficits. I tutor in English, literature, writing, math, and test prep at a variety of levels. I am most passionate about literature and writing as they are both hobbies I enjoy, but I also enjoy math because each problem feels like a puzzle to solve. I believe that learning should be engaging and fun, and was grateful to have many educators who helped me develop a strong educational background that has since provided me with many opportunities. I believe it is important to provide children and young adults with learning environments that emphasize the fun of learning, rather than portraying it as an inescapable chore. I try to provide an environment that encourages students to become active learners. In my free time, I enjoy reading all types of books, writing poetry and fiction, scuba diving, and hiking and slogging in the Everglades.
