I'm a world traveler, skier, surfer, and musician. I love learning and helping other people reach their full academic and intellectual potential!
I'm currently in my third year of university, majoring in Communication Studies with a minor in Teaching English to Students of Other Languages (TESOL). I've had the privilege to study in a range of places, including Colorado, Washington, and Valparaiso, Chile. The teaching opportunities I've been given include weekly lessons with exchange students in the U.S, as well as volunteering with Valpo Surf Project, a non-profit that teaches English to underprivileged youth in Valparaiso, Chile. My time spent in South America has given me competence in Spanish as well, something that I'm excited to share as a Spanish tutor. Other than TESOL and Spanish, I'm passionate about subjects such as Geography, History, and Sociology.

What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy is to work collaboratively with students to create shared meaning. In other words, teaching requires active feedback from the student, which feeds constant adjustment in teaching style.
