I'm a lifelong student with a B.A. from San Diego State University where I studied Psychology and electro-acoustic music. I'm hoping to return to school next fall to pursue a Master's in counseling psychology with an emphasis in creative arts therapy. I've been teaching ballet since I was 18, and have spent the past two years shifting towards educational tutoring through my profession. For three years, I've worked as a behavioral and academic tutor for students with developmental disabilities in home and classroom settings, allowing me to cultivate my skills. I'm passionate about finding creative approaches to teaching new subjects based on each student's learning style. My aim is to act as a guide for my students; teaching them to think critically and lead them to independent answers. My areas of expertise include writing and literature, psychology, and the arts. When I'm not writing about music, traveling, or reading philosophy you can find me running in the woods, teaching dance classes, and scouring my state for the best cup of coffee. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!
