School has always been a priority in my life - from maintaining a GPA of 3.9 while taking eight Advanced Placement (A.P.) courses in high school to graduating college summa cum laude with a GPA of 3.8 and completing a double-major in 4 years. Throughout my entire time as a student, I have been trained in a rigorous process of peer reviews for papers and speeches and have always held to a very high standard in all of my studies. I graduated two years ago from Simpson University in California with a double-major in Communication and Bible & Theology and moved to Atlanta one year ago to work as a nanny and pursue opportunities in acting.
I have always had an extraordinary ability to communicate difficult concepts and subjects in ways that are easy to understand and retain the information. This was the reason I chose to study Communication in college - to further be equipped to communicate anything to anyone, anywhere.
I also have an extensive background in theater and singing which allows me to present myself with dramatic flair and speak with artistic clarity. My personality is very fun and friendly, combined with a relational style that is open and engaging. When teaching, I have a natural ability to make the student feel at ease and to incite passion and excitement for learning by my fun and gregarious tutoring methods.
Beyond that, I have a natural ease with those who communicate differently due to culture, language, or developmental barriers. First off, I grew up with a sister who has ADD and have learned the difficulties associated with that. Also, in the summer of 2009, I was responsible for the education of an adult woman with cerebral palsy at a specialized learning center where I encountered many other forms of developmental and learning disabilities. As to cultural and language barriers, I have encountered a wide variety of multi-cultural environments throughout my childhood living in places like Venezuela, Miami, and California. During our family's various moves, I have had to learn how to adapt my communication style to the myriad of different cultures that presented themselves to me.
