I am a PhD Candidate pursuing a degree in Art History from New York University, with special interests in European and American art and film of the 20th century. I have traded the buzzing city of New York, where I completed my graduate coursework, and the exciting metropolitan city of Madrid, Spain, where I completed my doctoral research, for my native sunny San Diego to finish writing my dissertation and to begin a career in education.
My academic experience and disciplinary expertise reflect a wide range of interests and pursuits. These include the practice of fine arts, dance, and music, the dedicated and immersion-based study of Spanish, French, and Italian languages, the exploration of various historical periods and developments throughout Europe, the United States, and the Middle East, as well as a focus upon acquiring skills for success in research, reading comprehension, textual and visual analysis, writing and composition. I have served as a private tutor for students from elementary to high school ages, and served as the department tutor for research and writing in the Art History department at New York University.
Additionally, I have taught as an adjunct professor for the Art and Design History and Theory Department at Parsons The New School for Design in New York City, and before that I served as a teaching assistant for the Art History and Urban Design departments at New York University. From these positions, I acquired extensive experience in communicating a wide variety of historical and current event material to a diverse population of young adult students, along with imparting essential lessons of study skills, research assistance, critical reading and analysis, and cogent writing composition for these courses. I would love the chance to assist students of all ages in the San Diego area in achieving academic success and personal growth, with the hope of nurturing a love of learning and confidence that students can continue to develop throughout their lives. My schedule is very flexible, and please do not hesitate to contact me with questions! I look forward to serving you soon.
