I have held various positions in educational settings since 2010. My Bachelor degree in Sociology has also furthered my experience working with students. Teaching and being with students is something that I have really grown into. I have obtained a passion for teaching and for the time being, tutoring is what will bridge a gap until I receive my teaching credentials in the following years.
I received my Associates in Arts in 2012 at Modesto Junior College. During this time I was also employed by Migrant Education. With the migrant program, I did a lot of home visits to assist kids in tutoring and learning plans. As of early spring 2015, I started as a Secondary Counselor Assistant Tutor to assist students that were deficient in credits. Through all of this time my drive and motivation to work with students on a full time basis has increased substantially. I have always worked independently and do not require supervision.
I am currently my 3rd year teaching in an elementary school setting. If there is any further questions feel free to contact me.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
To encourage and motivate students to learn in a friendly and welcoming environment.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I would introduce myself and my qualifications in brief, as well as have a friendly icebreaker. I would then build a relationship with the student, all the while maintaining a relaxed and friendly environment.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I can help students become independent learners by showing them the proper methods needed to understand concepts. I would give them tips in critical thinking, and I would show them methods for real-life problem solving.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
I would celebrate students' small victories. Learning is difficult, and focusing on the positives makes a big impact on staying motivated.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
If a student had difficulties with a new concept I would try my best to break it down into smaller steps. I would also attack it from different angles with different methods.
