I am a recent graduate of University of Washington where I received my undergraduate degree in International Studies with a focus on the Environment. While a student at UW, I focused my studies on Latin American politics, Political economic systems as well as Spanish and Portuguese languages. In addition to my studies I was an active member of an on campus non-profit which aimed to create a more integrated campus for International students.
Since graduation in 2015, I have worked with the YMCA Youth and and Government program to encourage high school students to find their voice through civic engagement, as well as with various environmental non-profits. I am passionate about the power of language and cultural lived experiences and look forward to continuing my international education!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

As a tutor I believe it is my duty to break down any topic a student is struggling with. I hope to ensure the student not only understands the assignments at hand, but also the reasoning behind the questions and that specific assignment

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

The first session is a wonderful place to get to know the student as well as assess the needs of the student. This session is a great place to understand both the short-term and long-term goals of tutoring.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

The role of a tutor isn't to answer the problems a student is faced with, but instead to allow the student to build the tools to answer the questions on their own.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

The best way to motivate a student is to break down a problem or assignment in a more tangible way. This will allow the student to not only see the purpose and intent of the assignment but also to relate it to real world situations.
