I am originally from Fort Worth, Texas and graduated from Washington University in St Louis. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. Upon returning to Texas after college, I volunteered at the Vickery Meadow Summer Reading Academy in Dallas, comprised primarily of refugee and immigrant children, where I developed the students' Reading and Writing skills. Ultimately, I obtained a Texas educator certificate and taught elementary school for a school year as a Reading specialist. During that experience, I frequently worked with students individually and in small groups, and implemented interventions related to basic fluency and comprehension. Simultaneously, my team and I worked to prepare our students for the third grade STAAR exam, the first standardized test that elementary students take in Texas. Towards the end of my teaching experience, I decided to pursue a graduate program. Since I was looking for a career path more closely aligned with my undergraduate degree, I applied and was accepted to a dual degree Masters program at The University of Texas between The LBJ School of Public Affairs and The School of Public Health (MPH). I will be starting my joint-degree program soon, but I wanted to maintain a connection to education through tutoring students of all ages. I tutor in a broad range of subjects, however, I am most passionate about tutoring Political Science and Government, at all levels, and developing students' Reading and Writing skills. In my spare time, I enjoy running in the park, traveling and watching movies.
