I attended the University of California, Santa Cruz from 2003 to 2007. I majored in Literature
whilst working with CalSOAP, an organization
that provided outreach work. The four-year internship allotted opportunity to motivate students to pursue higher education and simultaneously allowed me to incorporate collegiate pedagogy into daily afterschool tutoring sessions (group and one-on-one sessions). The internship inspired me to apply to the University of Southern California’s Master of Arts in Teaching program (M.A.T) and continue growing as an educator. The M.A.T program allotted excellent field-experience– a semester in high school and a semester in middle school – paired with classes that instilled ideas and methods on ways to properly teach one’s subject matter in a class setting. I graduated from this program in 2008 and have been teaching, therefore, since the 2008 - 2009 academic year in charter and private schools.
My most recent job was at STAR Prep Academy, a private school in Culver City, CA. From 2011 to 2014, I served as their English
teacher. I taught seventh through tenth-grade English, served as the English Foundations teacher (a class that provides extra English support), and worked with the senior class via Senior Thesis (a class that guides seniors as they work on their culminating research papers).
Additionally, from 2011 to the present, I have served as a private tutor throughout Los Angeles. My lessons pertain to literary analysis, grammar
and style, and writing
(persuasive, expository, narrative, and descriptive).
Former students, their parents, and administrative supervisors would vouch for the creativity and rigor I bring to a campus. I intertwine old and new-age pedagogy to help harvest the intellect, talent and character of students.
