Continuously seeking new opportunities to help people academically and personally, I've attained a passion for helping kids and adults in writing, English proficiency, grammar, math, and more importantly, life skills.

The eldest of four, I have led my siblings to college-oriented careers. I have much experience not only tutoring students of all ages (from Elementary to College), but I've also completed extensive training in life-skill building and creating action plans for life's short-term and long-term goals, both personal and academic. Starting from elementary, I have participated in programs that improved reading and writing skills, and currently, I facilitate several classroom-size workshops and lessons for both personal and academic growth. I've worked in numerous after-school programs ranging educational levels from middle to college students.

With my special interest in working with "at-risk" youth and ESL students, I have learned that the most gratifying and humbling feeling from mentoring individuals is helping others achieve their educational and personal goals. The best reward of it all is witnessing the bright light bulb glow and the passion in their eyes.

My short term goals are to finish my masters program in Counseling Psychology and to be fluent in data collecting as a Behavioral Therapist. My long-term goal is to work with a range of clients in positive psychology based therapy as well as become a middle school counselor and educator.

My passion is helping others in their educational and well-being goals. Education and awareness are the solutions to ending the social problems we face today, such as poverty and the increase of diagnosed mental illnesses. I also believe in the power of human connection; in order to learn, one must have that special connection with the person who they are learning from. Mentoring and showing by example is one of the ways that I try to help someone else build a brighter, more optimistic, educational future!

As a Sociology Major, I have taken several criminology classes that enhanced my background knowledge of the justice system and the social implications of laws, practices, and public policies relating to persecution. I was also involved in an internship with LAPD supervisors, working on the side of police officers by implementing cite rules and regulations for after-school programs.

As a graduate from Holy Names High School, a College-prepatory school in Oakland, I have learned extensively different ways of how to study, effective study habits, goals, and relaxation methods of studying.
