I am a recent graduate with a bachelor's degree in journalism and mass communication from Humboldt State University with an emphasis in broadcast journalism. Over the last 8 years, I have been writing avidly for newspapers, radio and essays. I have edited other students work and helped improve their writing proficiency as well.

As a broadcast student, I have worked on several video productions and editing using Final Cut Pro and X. I also received an award for my work for broadcast news.

I am fluent in Turkish, but also am proficient in Spanish and Armenian. In 2005, I spent 3 months living in Istanbul, Turkey and speak Turkish on a regular basis.

I currently intern as a writer for a political syndicated radio show based out of Studio City.

For two years I worked in an after school tutoring program for students in k-6 and teach geology at an outdoor education school in the Angeles National Forest with hands on relateable teaching methods. I expanded my services to tutor students in the privacy of their own homes for over a year and saw positive improvement in my students' reading, writing and social studies.

Patience is my virtue and I absolutely value education.
I am available for language tutoring, history, reading, writing, essay help, social studies and editing software. I am also available to tutor via skype.
