I am a current graduate student at UC Davis, and will be receiving my teaching credential in July and will have completed my master's in education by February. Prior to this, I graduated Magna Cum Laude at CSUS with a bachelor's in Liberal Studies. I spent more than 3 years as a private multiple subject tutor for a middle school student, and have also worked as a Naturalist, teaching environmental studies and sciences, allowing me to work with children from 1st to 8th grade. I also have experience in peer tutoring at the college level.

I firmly believe all students can succeed with hard work and good study habits. I believe students benefit from being taught material in a way that is individual to their own way of thinking and may need concepts presented to them in a different way than they are taught in their classrooms. Beyond tutoring single subjects, I work with students to ensure they possess strong organizational and planning skills, learn to study efficiently and effectively, and "learn how to learn".

As a child who struggled with math, I believe many benefit from having the material explained in a unique way, and that many tough problems become simple when approached from a different perspective. Many students may struggle because their foundational knowledge is incorrect, compounding their issues. My experience in Exploratory Mathematics, Conjectures, and Proofs (or "how to teach math") has provided me with unique solutions and approached to common math problems.

As an avid lover of English and Language arts, I have excelled in all related classes and especially love tutoring these subjects. As part of receiving a teaching credential in California, there is a strong emphasis on literacy. In this vein, I have successfully completed assessments such as the RICA (Reading Instruction in California). I particularly enjoy grammar and public speaking.

If you are student feeling lost in a class or classes, I would love to help you feel empowered, prepared, and ultimately succeed in your course. I am pa
