I am a life long member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I completed 4 years of Seminary (a religious studies program offered through the church for high school students). Following High School, I served as a missionary for two years for the LDS church, teaching from the Bible as well as the Book of Mormon. In my college career, I completed 3 courses in religious study and history.
I am currently serving as a Sunday School teacher as well as Youth leader in my local congregation.
After obtaining my BA in History, and then my Master's Degree in Education, I began my certification program for teaching in the State of California.
I have worked for the past 4 years in many different classrooms, both public and private schools.
I am currently working for Ohlone Community College as an instructor in the community outreach after school and summer program. We work with k-12th grade students in all subjects.
I substitute in elementary classrooms in my local school district.
In 2012, I started tutoring that focuses on ESL language arts, creative writing, SAT/ACT/AP test prep as well as homework help and study skills.
The majority of my students currently are K-6th grade.
I have worked for the past twenty years with both youth and adults in schools, sports teams, and organizations. As a writing tutor as well as a leadership adviser. Public Speaking is about leadership and information. Confidence comes in time as practice and method are tested and skills are developed. I can help you be comfortable and confident developing skills needed to present your information in a clear manner.
World History is an exciting and dynamic subject. In World History we explore and investigate the development of human society and cultures from their earliest beginnings, throughout time , until today. In World History we explore different cultures and beliefs, understanding the influence that each has on the other an how they have developed over time. By using anthropology and archaeology , we piece together a wonderful puzzle of who we are. World History allows us a place to study and understand the ever changing geopolitical environment that we live in and how as societies and cultures we must learn from our past in order to secure a better and brighter future.
Writing does not have to be a chore for your student, Writing is a skill that will benefit and enrich any student's education for their entire lives. As a student myself and now as a teacher I have grown to love the writing process and find it a great way to explore the world around me and create new worlds never before seen. I have many years of experience working with students of all grade levels and abilities. I have a BA in History and a Master's in Education, I am currently working to obtain my credentials and working in private and public school settings.
