All students are capable of learning. Often all that is missing is a different approach or a more thorough breakdown of the subject. Students may require more practice, or simply someone who takes the time to explain things in a way their teacher doesn’t have time to do, and that’s why I’m here. Teaching needs to be tailored to an individual student, to their learning style and needs, and goal setting and praise are an important part of the process. I want to help each child unlock their full capability.
I graduated from Milford High School in 2007. I took a year off to go live abroad, in South America (where I went to a local high school and worked on my Spanish language skills) before returning to the US to start my university studies.
I graduated in 2012, Cum Laude, with a B.A. in International Affairs from the University of Cincinnati. I have minors in Spanish and Business Administration.
I began tutoring my freshman year of college when my old high school teacher recommended two girls who needed help with French. After college, I spent a year teaching ESL to adult students in Austin, Texas, through the Americorps program.
Meanwhile, I also worked for a formal tutoring agency. There I taught elementary through high school students language arts and foreign language, biology, algebra, world religion and geography, just to name a few subjects. After moving to El Paso, I once again began freelancing as a tutor, and was hired on to teach an informal ESL class at a local church on the weekends.
I enjoy reading, spending time with friends, working out, and scuba diving. My fiance and I enjoy spending our weekends discovering new areas of El Paso.
