Since graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2015 with BA's in both Spanish Literature and Communication Arts, I have been focusing solely on teaching and tutoring as my career. I worked as full-time tutor and mentor with City Year Boston, with my role focusing on in-class and after school tutoring for high school students. After moving to Los Angeles in August of 2016, I began working as a Teaching Assistant at a local charter middle school. My role focused on co-teaching differentiated math courses for both seventh and eighth graders, with daily opportunities to teach small groups and tutor students one-on-one. I also had the privilege to lead the after school program, in which I was able to teach weekly enrichment courses that were tailored to students' interests (i.e. Hip-hop and critical poetry analysis, civics, sports history, etc.) I am now pursuing a Master of Arts in Teaching degree with a focus on secondary English at USC, with the goal of becoming a high school English teacher. I am a highly motivated tutor with over two years of professional tutoring experience. My main focus is to support students achieve their academic goals by understanding that school/academics are for them. My style is open and friendly, and I take pride in my ability to build professional relationships with all students, regardless of background.
