Fresh out of college, I've attained a passion for helping kids and adults alike in writing, English proficiency, grammar, math, and more importantly, life skills.
The eldest of four, I have led my siblings to college-oriented careers. I have much experience not only tutoring students of all ages (from Elementary to College), but I've also completed extensive training in life-skill building and creating action plans for life's short-term and long-term goals, both personal and academic. Starting from elementary, I have participated in programs that improved reading and writing skills, and most recently worked in Writing Labs at L.A. Mission College. Prior to working at a community college setting, I've worked in numerous after-school programs for middle and high school students, from tutoring math and English to mentoring students and creating goal-oriented action plans.
Particularly working with "at-risk" youth and ESL students, I have learned that the most gratifying and humbling experiences are helping others achieve their goals, and the best reward for it all is seeing the face of an accomplished individual!
My short term goals are to be a volunteer of the Peace Corp and to be a graduate student in the Cal Berkeley Social Work program. My long-term goal is to get into law school, and eventually become a professor.
I love teaching and helping others in school. I believe that education is the one thing that, although it may be hard at times, cannot be taken away nor ever debased. I believe that education is the key to many doors in the world, both personal and academic, and it is education that creates the generations after me as the generation that will make the world a better, more aware place to inhabit. I love giving back and helping others and I want to live my life doing just that.
