I am a graduate of Tulane University, where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Sociology, with an emphasis on educational policy and family studies. I also received a minor in English with a Creative Writing concentration. While I was born in Mexico City, Mexico, I grew up in St. Louis and am currently fluent in both Spanish and English. In New Orleans, I worked as the Child Section Director at La Semilla ELL schools. Twice a week, three hours each day, I taught English to students, ranging in age 2-12. Because of the wide range, it was a lot of individual tutoring which involved homework help, and also games in English. I used songs and videos to also help teach English. I studied abroad in Prague, Czech Republic where I also worked at an English-Czech preschool. That semester, I taught English to kids ages 18 months-3 years and Spanish to 3-6-year-olds. While I don't have an ESL or Spanish-teaching certification, I have four years of experience!
I also have a deep love for literature and reading comprehension. With my English degree, I studied Shakespeare, American Literature and Western Lit (Greek and Roman literature). I have also interned at various websites and companies as a writer and an editor, so I have a lot of experience with essays and long papers such as research-papers. I am a firm believer in having fun while learning, so with younger students I tend to do a lot of games and a lot of positive reinforcement. And with older students, I use a lot of positive and useful criticism and finding ways to enjoy the work or at least enjoy reaching the end. I think anyone can learn any subject, I just have to find the right way to teach it to you!
As a native to St. Louis (Burroughs '13 grad), I enjoy exploring the city now that I'm older, writing and relaxing at home with my dog.
