I am a passionate, dedicated, and reflective teacher. I have been teaching since I was twelve - I was an Assistant Kempo Karate Instructor and gained experience teaching all ages. I continued to teach karate for five years and received my black belt in Kempo Karate when I was eighteen years old. Through karate I matured quickly and learned patience, honesty, and dedication.

I graduated with my bachelor's degree in English Literature from the University of Arizona in December 2012. During my undergraduate studies, I was nominated to precept for a general studies anthropology course titled "Race, Ethnicity, and the American Dream," which taught about racism in America. I helped lead class discussions, online communications, and field trips. It was a powerful class and a powerful experience for teachers and students alike.

A year ago I taught at a summer camp in Mexico and this past year I taught in a first through third grade classroom at a Montessori School, which were both incredible opportunities. I love working with kids because they are so enthusiastic and full of energy, and their discoveries are so essential.

It is important to me to do work that I feel makes a positive difference. I love teaching because I know I am helping improve someone's knowledge and therefore their ability and opportunity to contribute or "pay it forward" as well.

This fall 2014 I will start my master's program at San Diego State University in Creative Writing. I know that a good teacher continues learning and growing - as well as and alongside their students.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Handwriting

I have a bachelor's degree in English Literature. In addition, I have one year of experience teaching elementary students at a Montessori school. The school had mixed curriculum and so used handwriting books which I taught to the third grade students. In the books the students practiced cursive writing.

Phonics

I have a bachelor's degree in English Literature. I also taught at a Montessori school for a year in the 1st-3rd grade classroom, and we taught Phonics with workbooks. I helped the third grade students complete these activities which included rhyming, completing sentences, and creating books which they read aloud.
