As a recent University of California graduate, I understand the importance of starting out with a strong grasp of the English language.

English has always been a passion of mine, starting in the 6th grade. Reading, writing and working on vocabulary words are something I've done at home for years with my younger brother and cousins, and it's taught me patience and perseverance.

As a previous teacher, I have had the unique opportunity to use the preceding skills. I have been in charge of organizing schedules and being in charge of students’ homework, filing papers, and keeping track of grades and conducts. Conflicts often arise among children, allowing the enhancement of my ability as a mediator, which would allow me to remain conflict free in a work environment.

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.

College Counseling

Recently graduated from UCSB, and was able to manage my own schedule to finish a year early.

I have a method of planning out courses to ensure all courses will be accounted for by the end of the four-year term.

I am a current tutor helping students create the concepts they need to finish applications that truly demonstrate their ability and their personality to find a school that is a match.

Study Skills

As a current tutor, I have had the opportunity to teach my students organizational skills and prepare them for subjects such as French, English honors, and grade through middle school subjects. With a BA, I have spent the past three years vigorously working through my course work and coping and creating unique study skills that allowed me to graduate a year before my classmates.
