I received a bachelor of arts from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a major in Education and a minor in theater arts. I began my career teaching elementary school in Chicago. I also worked abroad, teaching English as a foreign language to Korean students in Seoul, South Korea. I relocated to Los Angeles in 2000 and earned a professional California state credential to teach multiple subjects to children in kindergarten through grade 8. I am also certified to teach English to students in grades kindergarten through grade 12 and to adults. I have over 10 years of experience educating elementary and secondary school students. I have worked for unified school districts in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, and Compton. I have taught large and small groups in public schools and private institutions. I have also provided one on one instruction and tutoring to both children and adults. As a young student, I earned straight A's, and in college I was an honor student, graduating with a 4.9/5.0 grade point average. I have superb organizational and study skills that I encourage my students to employ. I love teaching students of all ages and am extremely patient and supportive. English and math are my strongest subjects and I love teaching English as a second language!
