I got graduated from Catholic University of Peru in the city of Lima, Peru. I received my bachelor degree in Accounting last year. After my graduation, I moved to the US looking forward to study a Master related to Financial Accounting and Reporting. Moreover, I came from a family that highly values education which it has been an important source of inspiration to me. So that, I started tutoring people since my classmates through adults wishing to improve their Spanish, English and Mathematics level, which I really enjoy those subjects besides accounting. In my experience, I figured out that my students have a lot of motivation to study as a team in a good atmosphere. I consider myself an immigrant who believes education is a source of progress and personal development as a citizen, and I try to share that message to everybody. In my free time, I prefer cooking, seeing movies, swimming and dancing salsa.
