I moved from New York to Miami three years ago. I am currently studying my Master's degree in International and Intercultural Education Florida International University. My interest in tutoring is grounded in my personal and family commitment to community and political activism. I believe education is the gateway to the world's future. Children are the power and they must have a strong education to succeed in this world. Due to my parents` positive influence on my life, I have been involved in community organizing and activism since a young age. I grew up with the advantage of my parents` activism in local politics and have volunteered on many political and social campaigns. Throughout my life my parents have instilled in me the values of the political activism and the importance and usefulness of community involvement.
In addition to experience in the union movement and political involvement, I have been afforded many opportunities which have included: extensive travel throughout the United States, as well as South Africa and Latin
America volunteering in public schools teaching English
. For these last three months, I have had the astonishing opportunity to travel to the Southern Coast of Ecuador as a volunteer, teaching English in a public school, which furthered my experience and knowledge in developing countries. For the last year, I have been pursuing my graduate degree part-time in International Relations. Currently, I am employed by an international English school located in South Beach. Recently, I have had the pleasure and honor of being involved with events that included Vice President Biden, U.S. Senator Bill Nelson and Democratic National Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Through all these experiences I have developed a keen sensitivity to the importance of improving the quality of life for working men, women and their families. I believe effective political and community activism are key aspect to realizing that goal. I also have been learning Spanish
for the past four years. If given the opportunity I know my passion, knowledge and experience would prove valuable assets in tutoring you or your child.
I want to thank you for your consideration and look forward to speaking with you directly about my interest in tutoring.
