I recently graduated with a J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center this May. I attended undergrad at the University of Florida with a B.A. in Philosophy and Spanish. Since I was 15, I have helped students from 12-22 comprehend Spanish. I also tutor in personal statements, philosophy essays, and general essay writing for college students. My favorite section of the LSAT was Logic Games, so I tutor in this area as well. Spanish is my passion, as I have been studying it since I was in the 7th grade. Spanish provides endless learning, thanks to its many cultures and countries. I can also offer help for most law school related courses. I believe that the best learning occurs when one is truly interested in a topic. As such, I find fun ways to get my students interested in topics, whether it's through news articles or games. In my free time, I like to practice yoga, catch up on my favorite shows, read (in Spanish and English!) and watch football and hockey.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In our first session, I'll get a feel for how you learn best. Do you like worksheets or flashcards? Visual aids or straight text? Once we figure that out, we'll find what your problem areas are and how we can best tackle them!
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
Becoming an independent learner is all about finding the drive to learn. I want to help you get passionate about your studies, so that you really want to learn more and go the extra distance on your own!
What is your teaching philosophy?
Learning is better when you actually like the subject. I find ways to get my students interested in what they're learning, no matter how boring the subject may seem!
What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?
Even though they can be tedious, I use weekly quizzes to track my students’ progress. The quizzes cover only what we reviewed that week. Instead of giving my students a "grade", we then go over any that they missed to be sure they understand the concept and where they went wrong.
