I am a 2013 graduate from University of California, Berkeley. My favorite subjects to study were history and social theory, which helped me earn a BA in International Development with a focus on Latin America. My interest in the culture of our southern neighbors aligned nicely with my teaching experience. After college I was placed in Nashville, TN through Teach for America where I taught 5th grade English for two years, and ran an after school program for newcomer immigrant and refugee students. In that time I learned a great deal about the craft of teaching. My biggest take away is that every student learns differently and it's imperative to create ways for students to see incremental success so that their confidence grows along with their mastery of the content. Although I am excited to tutor in a wide range of subjects, I myself love to read and write. I have a great time helping students discover a love of literature and critical thinking, whether that be through an elementary curriculum or critical reading section of the GRE! I am currently studying for LSAT, but when I do have a free moment I enjoy playing soccer and attempting to cook.
