Hello! I am a recent graduate of UC Berkeley, where I studied Media Theory and Architectural History. Through the University's Cal Corps program, I was given the opportunity to work in classrooms as an after-school tutor and mentor. My forte is English/language arts; I have received awards for writing, both creative and journalistic. In addition, I have experience tutoring differently-abled students (primarily ADD/ADHD) and served as a mentor for underprivileged youths for 2 academic years, within Lafayette Elementary in Oakland.
Currently, I am working as a multidisciplinary tutor for home-schooled students.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

After receiving elementary education tutor training within UC Berkeley's Cal Corps program, I was placed in various Bay Area elementary schools as an after-school aide. Our primary goals were to increase students' academic confidence, as well as to enhance their respective literary skills. In addition, I worked as a mentor and homework assistant within the West Oakland-based "Lafayette School Mentoring Project" for two academic years (working with students in grades 4 and 5), I have approximately four years of experience with tutoring youths at the K-6 levels.
