I have an MEd in Curriculum and Instruction and a BA in French and Romance Linguistics from the University of Washington. I'm currently an elementary school paraeducator in Highline school district, WA, where I help K-5th/6th grade children with reading and math. I was a teaching assistant at French Immersion School of Washington from July 2018- March 2019. I taught ESL in China from Aug. 2011-Aug. 2012 at Optimum English, Linyi, Shandong, and Sep. 2012-Mar. 2018 at Learning Education, Shanghai. I taught French as a teaching assistant for the University of Washington from Sep. 2010-Aug. 2011.

In my tutoring, I incorporate what I've learned from my research in Curriculum and Instruction and Multicultural Education, as well as from my own teaching experience. I know the value of using curricula as guidance about what a student should be able to accomplish in a specific subject at a certain age or educational level. Moreover, whenever and wherever I tutor, I'm passionate about adjusting the curricula I use in ways that are relevant to my students' culturally and socially-influenced learning styles. I'm always primarily concerned with helping my students attain the goals that they see as right for themselves. I think it's important to let each student be their own kind of learner.

I have been tutoring clients with Varsity Tutors since May 4, 2018. I have tutored various subjects including elementary reading, writing and math, French, ELL/ESL, high school and college English literature, study skills, and algebra. I could also assist with Portuguese and perhaps beginning Spanish, as well as test prep (SAT, ACT). In China I tutored various ELL/ELL clients of all ages. In high school and college I tutored a few students in French as well.

My future goals include pursuing a secondary teaching certificate and teaching ESL, French, and possibly other languages in public school. I have thought someday I would like to be able to start a language teaching nonprofit.
