"My passion is realizing the potential of technology to bring people together, mobilize collective action, and create real change in the world.

In various roles, I have taught Yoga, coding, digital marketing, public speaking, and math subjects ranging from basic Algebra to Trigonometry. In my current job as social media manager I am responsible for leading training workshops on digital content production.

I tutored for 2 years at Santa Monica College, for the department of Computer Science and Computer Information Systems. The subjects I work with and the students I work with are diverse. The subjects I tutor PHP/mysQL, and from Adobe Dreamweaver to Wordpress. Although my main focus in learning is web programming, I have kept myself familiar with many general purpose languages such as C, Visual Basic, and Java as I also help students frequently with these subjects.

I consider code debugging to be a crucial skill, and this is something I have worked hard to attain. over my work in assisting students faced with 'bugs' in code. I devised a set of techniques to troubleshoot programming code, which many students over the semesters used with much success - whether to Visual Basic, or to Java, or javascript. Some of the problem solving techniques are effectively done on pen marker and paper and not merely on the computer screen. I like to teach the use of native tools such as Google Chrome Developer which offer - once familiar - an excellent and fast tool to solve problems with web source code and css that can't be as easily solved with text editors such as Dreamweaver (my favorite web authoring tool), Aptana Studio, or Expression Web, or advanced search tools including search tools on the web.

I am a believer in the Socratic approach, emphasizing my essential role as ultimately showing students how important it is to formulate quality questions as the key to quality answers or solutions. Thus by asking the right question or questions, I can empower the student to find their own solutions.
