Teaching comes naturally to me and I have always enjoyed helping others not only to learn but also to guide them to self-discovery of their own potential and inborn curiosities. I believe in the importance and power of education and I enjoy working with youth and helping them to build confidence and motivation to succeed in their studies. My passion for education led me to become a public high school teacher for 8 years before I decided to become a full-time graduate student to eventually pursue a career in higher education. During my tenure at Santa Fe High School I taught college preparatory English to all 4 grades as well as SAT prep courses. I have also had extensive experience tutoring one on one. I feel comfortable around children and teenagers and enjoy helping them to succeed. I have an easygoing and patient demeanor that helps to create a productive learning environment.
