I am a credentialed elementary school teacher. My undergraduate degree is in Child Development with a minor in Psychology, and I hold a Master's degree in Education from UC Santa Barbara. I really enjoy working with students one-on-one and in small groups. I feel that this is the best time for me to get to know their specific needs as a tutor and educator. My students would describe me as a kind, patient, creative, and honest teacher. I have experience with a variety of age groups, from students as young as 1st grade up to middle school. I have been a full-time teacher in both the 2nd and 3rd grade. Perhaps my most exciting teaching opportunity took place from 2011-2012 when I taught at an international school in Hanoi, Vietnam. I was able to teach English Language Learners (mostly Korean students), interact with many cultures, and open my eyes to new ways of seeing the world. My passion is teaching children, but I also love writing and would be willing to help adults as well! I love learning and seeing others succeed...with just a little push in the right direction.
