I graduated in May 16, 2014 with a M.A. in Spanish language and literature. After I graduated in Spanish with honors from the California State University, Chico, I was awarded a Spanish Teaching Assistantship at the department of Foreign Languages and Literatures (University of Nevada, Reno). I also got a diploma in Medical Assistant in 2005. Since 2012, I have taught both introductory and intermediate language courses in Spanish. In all my courses, both students and faculty reviews of my teaching have been extremely positive (an average of ‘Excellent’ in my annual teaching evaluations), citing in particular my organization and originality of activities, clarity of presentation, enthusiasm for teaching, and strong interest in advising and helping students.

Also, I served as a math tutor in the Mathematics, Engineering, Sciences and Health Occupations Division (MESA), and also at the College Success Center. Additionally, I worked for two consecutive summers with the Upward Bound students, assisting them in the classroom, tutoring them after classes, and as a lab supervisor. This background has given me a solid foundation in teaching math skills.

Beyond my professional skills, I also believe I possess the personal qualities to help students. I am a dynamic professor and have great enthusiasm for the teaching and learning of mathematics. I am very sensitive to the needs of all students, regardless of their math skills. The relaxed classroom atmosphere I create in all my classes allows students to make positive progress in learning and understanding math without feeling overwhelmed. I am always patient with students. I am a good listener, a successful adviser, and an excellent motivator.
