My goal is to leave no student confused nor understanding the material. My personal hobbies are writing poetry, singing, and dancing. My interests are arcades, movies, and the beach. I graduated from Sandalwood High School with my high school diploma. I attained my associates in biology from Broward College and my bachelors in psychology from Florida International University. I'm currently a tutor and the subjects I've tutored in is math, reading and comprehension, english and writing. My favorite subject to teach is math because I love solving mysteries and breaking complicated problems down to a single answer. I love to write poetry, sing, and dance outside of my academics.
