I am currently a student in the University of Central Florida pursuing a Marketing and Communications degree. I tutored for many years throughout high school with various school organizations, such as the National Honor Society and Spanish Club. In the field of mathematics, I spent several years tutoring Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, and Algebra II. Besides math, I also helped an array of students throughout my high school career with Spanish subjects. I took all the Spanish classes offered in my school, including AP Spanish Lang, AP Spanish Lit, and Cambridge's AICE Spanish. I passed both AP tests with a 5 and the Cambridge test with an A. I am fluent in Spanish and capable of teaching in English, Spanish, or both languages.
