I am a graduate of Long Beach City College. I received my Associates of Arts in French and Spanish Studies. Since graduation, I have begun working on my Bachelors of Arts in French and Spanish Translation, with a minor in Religious Theology. I recently relocated to North Carolina from Los Angeles, and am very excited to begin this next chapter of my life in such a beautiful place. While I can tutor a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about French and Spanish. In my experience helping struggling students learn a new language, we always seem to have the most fun watching the various foreign language movies in my collection, as well as playing the games I have that focus on language. I am a firm proponent of education, believing it to be absolutely necessary for an improved quality of life, and I try to impart this appreciation to all of my students. In my spare time, I enjoy reading classic literature, singing, watching movies and crafting. I am an extrovert at heart, and I have an artists soul.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe that each student learns in a different way. I strive to find the best and most interactive way that a student learns, and use that as my platform for tutoring.

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

In a first session, I like to find out what their goal is for the tutoring. I also like to assess their knowledge level so that we are not repeating the same information that they already know.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I like to empower students to find things in the area we are tutoring in that interest them. For instance, if a student is studying French, and is a film buff, I would encourage them to explore different French films as a way for them to independently study the language in a way that interests them.
