I am a proud graduate of three top universities: Yale, Stanford, and UC Berkeley. My degrees include a Masters in Teaching from the Stanford University Teacher Education Program. I am a credentialed and experienced teacher in English Language Arts, and US and World History. I have taught at both the middle and high school level in schools that served students from low-income and immigrant backgrounds, many of whom were English Language Learners. At the Lawrence Hall of Science at UC Berkeley, I had fun developing literacy-focused, project-based, middle school science curriculum in Life, Physical and Earth Sciences. I particularly loved being a volunteer tutor to high school students from East Oakland, CA. I worked with them to become college ready by developing study skills and preparing rigorously to take standardized tests. In addition to tutoring them, I mentored them to develop small business projects and seek funding from entrepreneurs in the California Bay Area. I have a particular passion and knack for helping students write college admissions essays.
I am a caring teacher and tutor who is dedicated to instilling a love of learning while ensuring youth make major academic advancements and have strong study skills.
I have traveled extensively and volunteered with reforestation programs in Guatemala. In my spare time, I love hiking, playing the ukulele, and reading with my cat Lola on my lap.
