I have over 10 years’ experience as a tutor and mentor. I have tutored students from K-9th grade in a variety of subjects such as English, Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science. I have also helped students to prepare for end of the year testing, such as the STAR and CAT/6 tests. I enjoy tutoring as it provides me with the opportunity to share what I have learned and to also watch each student grasp difficult subjects. When tutoring I want to create a comfortable environment for each student to learn, by patiently taking the time to make sure that each student fully understands the subject being studied. I also strive to tailor the lessons to the strengths and weaknesses of each student.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Biology from California State University Dominguez Hills in 2010. In December 2015 I completed my Master’s degree in Community Health Education. Now that I have completed school I am using my free time to spend time with family, watch some of my favorite shows on Netflix, and travel. Overall I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge and joy of learning with each student that I tutor.

What is your teaching philosophy?
I don't know everything and there is so much still to learn. I want learning to be fun and interesting. Everyone learns differently. I want to teach in a way that will meet the unique needs of each student!
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
It is important to get to know the students and learn more about areas where they struggle. From there I like to set learning goals.
