I played soccer for around 10-11 years on AYSO and then for 3 years when I got to high school. Many of those years I was picked for the All-Star team and when I first got to high school in the 10th grade, I was able to make it on the Varsity team (which at the time, at Alemany High School, was no small feat). I have played in all the positions, so I possess a well rounded knowledge of the necessary skills/attributes needed for each member of the team.
When I was a tutor at Concorde Career College, much of my time was spent with students who were lacking in study skills. After spending about a year there, I put together a presentation that outlined the basic fundamentals when it came to studying, such as time management, consistency, and smart practices. I understand the critical need for students to demonstrate good study habits and how vital a role that will play in their academic success. There are little tips and tricks that also can be utilized to aid in the studying process that I have become privy to in my years of tutoring (bold-faced words, flash cards, how to take tests, etc.)
I practically knew how to swim before I could walk! I joined my first swim team when I was 5 and went to the junior Olympics when I was 15. I taught swimming at the YMCA and a small private school in the valley. I have been certified in Lifeguarding and WSI, although these are not current. I also participated in a triathlon when I was 16, which included an ocean swim. I was on the Varsity swim team all of my years in high school.
One of the most competitive programs at Concorde Career College was their Vocational Nursing program and there were many aspiring students that needed help in preparing for this exam. I was the tutor for these students, and have an understanding of what is required to pass the exam. The test consists of Reading, Mathematics, Science and English and Language Usage. I can say with some confidence that there were many students that would not have passed the exam without my assistance in strengthening their skills.
