"Succeeding academically throughout high school led me to think that I should pursue a career in law, but after attaining Bachelors in Political Science from UC Berkeley, a Masters in Special Education from Loyola Marymount, and reading a few spectacular books, I decided to return to school in pursuit of a childhood passion. I am now a transfer student at CU-Boulder studying Engineering Physics, with hopes to eventually pursue a Ph.D. Although it seems like a counter-intuitive jump, I believe that math and science can offer extensive explanations or solutions to the various dilemmas covered in humanities; plus, it would be kind of cool if I became an astronaut one day!

I particularly love supporting students with Calculus, Physics, and Trigonometry. There are endless visual or auditory supports that can bring these subjects to life and a strong foundation in these subjects can allow students greater access to advanced math or science classes in the future. I am also qualified to tutor in ACT/SAT prep (cleared by other companies), supporting students through the content, but more importantly, test taking strategies and test anxiety reducing practices.

My time at Berkeley significantly impacted my perspective on education and my personal goals, leading me to join Teach for America upon graduation. I taught special education at an inner city middle school for four years, focusing on individualized learning supports for students to succeed in a general education setting. This experience challenged me to learn various teaching strategies that met each student's individual learning styles for different content. I love finding interactive ways to help students grasp complex and abstract topics! Often, a catchy tune, a kinesthetic practice, or a visual reminder can be the light bulb for understanding a subject that previously felt unattainable. I hope to bring these strategies and tips to each tutoring session, ensuring that each student is learning through their unique style.
