I am a graduate of Point Loma Nazarene University. I received my Bachelors of Arts in Liberal Studies. I have also attended a postsecondary institution, National University and majored in Education with an emphasis in Curriculum Development. Upon graduation, I was employed as a (K-12) substitute teacher. My responsibilities are as follows but not limited to: I formulated effective lesson plans in accordance to the Department of Education, students were instructed in all required subjects, and I also tutored students in math, reading, and writing. These students whom I was given the opportunity to teach and tutor resided in underprivileged communities. Under my tutelage, many of the students achieved academic success in the targeted areas and tests scores soared. Because of the approach that was used to educate the students, it became the anchor for their success.
In addition to substituting, I also worked in the private sector and instructed students in a combination classroom that consisted of students in grades four through six; and also in grades three through five on two separate employment opportunities. Many of the students were empowered by their academic achievements which played a significant role in boosting their confidence. This was many of the wonderful moments that I had the opportunity to witness concerning their accomplishments.
While I have tutored in other areas besides math, writing, and reading, my passion is for history. I believe that every student has the potential to be successful in any subject. However, the truth in the matter is that they look for genuine educators who care about them; and those who are willing to take that extra step to encourage them along their journey to success.
