I am a graduate of Pomona College. In 2012, I received my Bachelor of Arts with a major in Politics. Since graduation, I have worked in both public and private schools as an instructional assistant. My job responsibilities included tutoring students in the following subjects: Pre-Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, AP Calculus, English/Language Arts, Writing, Social Studies, U.S. Government, Biology, and Social Studies. Of the many subjects I have helped my students with, subjects involving math or politics have been my favorite, because both challenge me to think creatively and critically. My tutoring philosophy is to help create independent and critical thinkers. My style reflects this style: The ultimate goal in every tutoring session is NOT to get the right answers, but to understand the concepts being taught and to be able to apply that understanding to a variety of situations. Outside of working with students, I enjoy reading and running.
