I am a new graduate from USC’s MPW program. I have always been interested in teaching. I got my start during my undergraduate studies at CSULB, where I offered private tutoring to several students of local public schools. I took on a few students as a private tutor at first, helping them write both academic essays and creative pieces. After graduating, and experiencing a number of small successes, I had the opportunity to try my hand at full-time teaching. I traveled to Wakayama, Japan, and taught for seven months at a small language arts college. There, I taught a group of eight students writing, literature, TOEFL, TOEIC, conversation, and debate. It was a defining experience for me, and I knew I had made the right decision in my academic focus. Since I returned to Los Angeles, I have been tutoring sparingly and consulting one-on-one with students at USC’s Writing Center, helping students become better essay writers. This was a great experience for me, and it included not only working with regular students on an individual basis, but also leading weekly workshops on Grammar. I enjoy teaching very much, and I know without a doubt it is something I am capable of doing well. I am eager to get back into the field on a more regular basis, and I believe I can excel as a tutor.
