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 and biology. 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!
I have played baseball since age 6. I was a 3 year letterman on my high school baseball team, I was invited to play baseball at two division two colleges and one community college. I have been an assistant coach on a team helping third and fourth grade children with hitting, fielding, and throwing.
Basketball is all my all-time favorite sport. I have played basketball competitively since age 10 and I am able to mentor kids and young adults on both offensive and defensive strategy including shooting technique, pick and roll, weak side cover defense, man-to-man defense, zone defense, passing skills, and jumping skills. I have been a head coach and an assistant coach in two separate city recreational leagues.
I have used this program for over two years while working at my day job. I utilize Microsoft Outlook to send and receive emails, set reminders, send out meeting invitations, and to organize my daily, weekly, and monthly calendars. I find this system very useful and it has allowed me to become more efficient at my job while prioritizing my upcoming tasks and goals. I think teaching the use of this system can ultimately help children growing up because it can teach organization and discipline.
