I am a sophomore at Fordham University, Lincoln Center campus. I am a double major in Spanish Language and Literature and Visual Arts with a concentration in Architecture. I hope to attend Columbia's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation after I complete my undergraduate studies in hopes of studying Architecture and Urban Design. Fordham has a very intense core curriculum to make a well-rounded student. Students are required to take courses in subject areas such as: Philosophy, Theology, Mathematics, Globalism, American Pluralism, Natural and Physical Science, and Foreign Language. I entered college as a double major in French and Spanish because I speak Spanish fluently and French conversationally, so I thought perhaps I could make a career out of it, but I changed my mind and decided that I would be happier combining my love for drawing and planning to become an architect.

I tutor Psychology, Writing, Essay Editing, Spanish (most levels), and English. I am a really big fan of flash cards for key terms (especially with Psychology!) and a big part of my philosophy on tutoring is helping to build my students' confidence in a subject. I feel that once you are sure of yourself, the rest comes after, and it is usually sooner than you had originally anticipated. My favorite subject to tutor is Spanish because I have learned that a lot of the time I end up learning more from my students than I do in the classroom. That, and I adore the Spanish language. It has really opened a lot of doors for me and helped me connect with a lot of different people.

In my spare time, I enjoy skateboarding in Central Park, going to museums (my favorite is The Metropolitan Museum of Art), and being adventurous with all the food NYC has to offer. I spent twelve years riding horses competitively, and I still try to mount up as often as I can, it's just been more difficult now that I am in college. I am hoping to design my own barn after grad school; even if it is never built, that has always been a dream of mine.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I am very big into the idea that every student is different. All of my tutoring is adapted to the individual's needs.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

I like getting to know who I'm working with so that we're comfortable with each other. I also like to assess their abilities and set goals in the first session.
