I've been tutoring students since 2008. I am very flexible in my approach to a student. I believe that everyone is capable to learn yet different people require different approaches. Discovering their learning style is as important as the information itself because I want to help the students become a better learner not just a better student.

I have been awarded the American Vision Award 2009 for Best in Show in Colorado Arts and Writing Scholastics Competition. I believe creativity is not only necessary for painting and drawing, but it is also crucial in academia. The key is to channel creativity into academia instead of it being a distraction.
