I am a graduate student in political science and community development at Illinois State University (4.0 GPA), and I am currently in DC completing an 11-month practicum at a non-profit organization in conjunction with my graduate degree. In 2011 I received a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish with distinction from the University of Colorado Boulder (3.81 GPA) in three years. I have much experience in teaching and tutoring multiple subjects over the past six years. While at the University of Colorado Athletic Department, I tutored student-athletes in Spanish, Economics, Accounting, and Mathematics. During that same period, I worked for a private company where I tutored mostly in Economics and Accounting. I joined the Peace Corps where I was an English teacher and trainer volunteer for elementary schools for two years, and I gained much experience with young students and TESL. In addition to these jobs, I have taught English to college-level students in China and elementary students in Spain. I'm a strong believer in "practice makes perfect", and I know from experience that receiving a good grade takes a firm personal motivation combined with a strong battle plan.

When I'm not working, I like to play basketball, travel, run, and explore DC. I'm fluent in Spanish, and I also speak Portuguese, a Micronesian language, Italian, some Chinese, and some bits and pieces of Russian.
