Growing up as a student always presented challenges and distractions. Family, friends, sports, random distractions, you name it! ...Most distractions, like family and friends, are not intended to get in the way of our studies because they are the most valued and highest prioritized. However, I found myself numerous times in elementary school trying to speed through homework or cram a study session for a test that was the next day.
We all need help... Throughout junior college I had assistance with tutors helping me in both physical science
. Without those personalized guided lessons, I never would have flourished in those subjects. Tackling a new subject can be daunting and because of that we need an outside perspective that can help us relate to the material being presented. There are all different kinds of ways to gain knowledge on a topic; however, me personally, I benefit most from specialized, private lessons. Because of this preferred method to learn, I know I can give back to those who may need an extra push outside of the classroom to get where they need to be!
I was privileged to have gone and graduated from UCSD in 2010 with a degree major in political science and a minor in sociology
. Political science provided me with critical thinking, problem solving, and descriptive writing
skills while completing 25-30 page term papers. Boy... I have never seen so many red cross marks on my pieces of paper! It takes a while to master a skill, but after four or five tries, the red marks turned into handwritten green compliments. I had to persevere but in the end it was all worth the while, and I am now more confident than ever when writing with purpose. Sociology classes were by far my favorite! Learning about groups of people, different societies, worldly values and morals allowed me to become more open-minded while acknowledging the fact that we are all different and there is no normal. All of our perspectives should be heard, respected, and then evaluated. I am grateful for my college experience.
Currently, I work for a medical laboratory that helps treat cancer diagnosed patients. I take pride in my position and I know that day in and day out I am having a direct hand in the fight against cancer. Ultimately, I want to help people. I realize how important education is for younger kids and adults growing up because it sets the foundation for what we choose to do during the course of our lives! I want to be a part of that helping hand to those in need or those who are looking for motivation to succeed in the classroom. I want to pass on my knowledge of each subject that I have been accredited for, but most importantly, I want to show a method of learning that can be used for the future so subjects may eventually be self-taught. With that said...

I look forward to meeting you soon and thank you for your time!
