Hello! Thank you for visiting my profile. I am a recent graduate of the University of San Francisco's School of Education, where I earned my Master of Arts degree in Teaching and a California single-subject teaching credential in social science.
I have always had a great interest in and enthusiasm for history and the other social sciences. This interest and enthusiasm was developed by numerous teachers who utilized creative and fun lessons and activities in their teaching. Through these lessons and activities, my teachers showed their students that history was so much more than the memorization and repetition of facts, that economics was so much more than knowing the difference between supply and demand, that government was so much more than what happens in Washington D.C. By introducing their students to the breadth and depth of a subject, these teachers fostered student understanding of the material, as opposed to rote memorization.
As a teacher and a tutor, I strive to provide the same experiences to my students that I received when I was a student.
