I am currently a Masters student at Pepperdine. I am finishing a Masters Degree in Education while completing a Teaching Credential. I have always excelled in the areas of Math and Science and am looking to teach in one of those subjects in the near future. I thoroughly enjoy working with students eager to learn. I have spent time as a Student Teacher in both an 8th grade Physical Science class and a high school Biology class. In addition, I spent nearly 4 years as an assistant water polo coach at the high school level.
Additionally, I was a life guard instructor/teacher for the local YMCA. My greatest joy in the classroom comes from helping students "get it". I thrive at finding new ways to explain concepts so that students are able to obtain understanding.
I am very patient and willing to do what it takes to make sure that the student is able to succeed. I strongly believe that students do not need to be given answers instead they need to be taught how to discover them on their own. My schedule is very flexible and I am willing to spend as much time as you may need to reach your academic goals.
