"I've been tutoring on and off for the past 10 years. I began tutoring in high school as an AVID tutor as an elective. After obtaining my Associates, I worked as an interventionist at the elementary school I attended in my youth. The age group I enjoy working with the most is the 8-12 upper elementary age range. Seeing their curiosity and willingness to learn reminds me of my own passion for learning and is my favorite part of the job.

Right now, I'm working towards my Bachelor degree in Anthropology. My focus in this subject is linguistics, specifically first language acquisition, which is learning how kids learn to speak and read. Without a doubt, ELA is my favorite subject to tutor.

I believe in differentiated Math. All students are capable of learning math, as long as the instructor can adapt the lessons to the level the student is at. Math proficiency is built on a series of sequential steps, and must be taught in the right order for complete understanding.

While attending community college, I got the chance to volunteer as an assistant scientist for a K-2nd grade program. The program was dedicated to teaching kids about the local ecosystems and natural environments.

My first tutoring job was as a reading interventionist. I was trained to target areas of weakness in reading and writing skills in students according to their grade level. Through targeting the student's personal interests, I worked to make the process of getting them to their proper level an enjoyable one.

I'm excited to start working with you virtually and help on your educational journey! Feel free to contact me for my availability and with any questions you may have!" less...
