In 2011, I graduated from the University of California, Irvine with a Masters of Arts in Teaching. Prior to that, I received a Bachelors of English with minors in Education and Japanese. After graduation, I was accepted into the JET Programme, a government-run program that invites people from all over the world with at least a Bachelors to teach English at various public schools across Japan. I taught English to kindergarten through 9th-grade students for four years before coming back to America. I can help with reading, writing, and comprehension skills when it comes to English, as well as help prepare for tests and develop useful studying habits. I use a lot of modeling, scaffolding, and I take the time to learn about those I will be tutoring to better help them.

I am currently a substitute teacher in various districts such as CUSD, OUSD, and HBUHSD, but I am applying to many more as well. If you're a junior high school or high school student, who knows, maybe you'll have seen me around your campus. :)

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, drawing, and playing video games (helps me stay in the know with what students are doing these days, and it's just fun!). I'm here to help!
