I graduated from University of California: Los Angeles (UCLA) with a degree in Political Science and a minor in Global Studies. At UCLA I sat on several executive student councils and even ran for President of the University!
A San Diego native, I recently moved to St. Louis to pursue the Coro Fellowship in Public affairs, housed out of FOCUS St. Louis. Coro is a national 9 month experiential learning program that gives me exposure to a broad range of fields relating to the public sphere.
I am well versed in subjects relating to social sciences, writing, public speaking, study skills/ organization, politics, government, writing college essays, and many other fields. I am particularly well suited to teach politics, government, organization, and public speaking due to my extensive experience working first hand in government agencies, on political campaigns, in non profits, and as an organizer.
I teach by setting up and supporting the student; sure, I could give the student the answers and explain those answers in a way that the student will understand, but I have found they will retain the knowledge considerably better and take greater ownership over their learning if I strategically ask questions to support them finding the answers on their own.
Outside my interests in tutoring I enjoy going on adventures. Some highlights include running with the bulls in Spain, attending the Olympics in London, going on and winning a motorcycle on a game show, and discovering a hidden pool in the middle of the Mohave desert.
