I hold a baccalaureate degree in English from the University of La Verne and received the designation of Departmental Honors with my undergraduate degree from the university English Department faculty. I am versed in all periods of American Literature and British Literature.

I am an engaging instructor who believes that experiential learning and examples based on real life experiences are the best way to instill and develop creative thinking in students. I am a positive and organized professional who has a strong work ethic and intuitive problem solving skills. My communication style is diplomatic, genuine, and interpersonal. I have an innate ability to connect to others and establish long-lasting rapport. My work philosophy is, “when we give our best, we receive the best from others,” and all my work reflects this ideology.

While my skills and professional experience are vast, it is my preference to focus my tutoring on my passion for English and its associated subject matters: editing, grammar, presentation, proofreading, public speaking, reading, spelling, and all forms of writing (i.e., creative, business, grant/proposal, technical).

I have over 15 years of producing writings that are grammatically correct and error free. I have outstanding editing and proofreading skills and excellent grammar, spelling and punctuation skills.

Additionally, I am proficient in AP, APA, Chicago, and MLA style guidelines.

As a business coach, consultant or trainer, I have over 18 years of proven business analysis and management experience. I am a certified Enterprise Architect (EA-C). Enterprise Architecture is an analytical system that maps goals, processes and resources, and uses a blended evaluative approach based on Six Sigma, Lean, and architecture/engineering principles to identify areas of improvement in business and technology processes. I am proficient (advanced skill level) in all versions of Microsoft Office. I have experience in Adobe Creative Suite as follows: advanced skill level all versions of Acrobat Pro, intermediate skill level in InDesign, and basic skill level in Photoshop.

I arrived to the United States when I was 5 years old, and spent my first several years in public school trying to understand, speak, and write American English from my native Central American language. My introduction came from public corrections of my annunciation, pronunciation, and grammar structure, which left me feeling ashamed rather than encouraging my learning. I share my story so that you will know that I truly understand what it feels like to learn English as a Second Language (ESL). My ESL tutoring sessions would be individually customized to assure that students master how to understand, read, write, and speak American English, with minimal stigma or embarrassment.

I am familiar with a variety of modern ESL teaching techniques and theories. I would love the opportunity to share my knowledge with WyzAnt students.

I would transfer my love of reading to my students in a creative and engaging manner.

My innate spiritual curiosity has fueled my knowledge research in many world religions, such as: Christianity (i.e., Catholic, Protestant, Anglican, Methodist denominations), Buddhism, Hinduism).
