I started tutoring in high school when I played varsity soccer, and many of the players needed assistance to pick up their grades to remain eligible for sports. Since then, I have tutored more formally. I was a teaching assistant at Point Loma Nazarene University for both the Psychology and Spanish Departments. This involved working with students one-on-one and reviewing past course work, quizzes, and tests. I was always willing to meet with students that needed extra help. I also frequently made study guides that were easy to navigate to help students succeed.

I love to tutor because it is a way to use my strengths to help others. I also highly relate to students because I am still a student. As an individual beginning graduate school, I have had to take many standardized test, such as the GRE and the ACT. I understand how frustrating they are, and I want to help others succeed.

I minored in Spanish in college, and I was only a couple classes short of a major. When we were tested at the end of the program, I was placed at the "Advanced-High" level, which is one level lower than the skills required of an ambassador or diplomat. My mother speaks Spanish, so I grew up in a household where Spanish was often spoken. I also got a 5 on the AP Spanish exam in High School.

I frequently utilize writing skills and am always happy to pass along pointers and edit papers. I am studying psychological research, which means I habitually write formal papers to be submitted for review. I got a 35 on the ACT and feel comfortable helping students that need assistance with writing.

I took the GRE last summer after months of studying. I did not take any preparation classes. Rather, I studied myself using books and practice tests. I scored between the 86th and 93rd percentile on each section. I was able to develop many strategies for studying and assisted my friends that were taking the exam as well. I was accepted to every Masters program where I applied with my GRE scores.

I am highly looking forward to tutoring!
