I graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a Bachelor's Degree in Philosophy and a minor in Economics. During my senior year I studied abroad in Cordoba, Spain and while I am not fluent, I have a strong command of conversational and written Spanish. I have been in the field of education for almost two years. I started out as a substitute teacher, but currently work as a 3rd grade teacher's aide and after school tutor at a charter school in Oakland. In this position I work with lower performing students individually or in small groups on math and writing skills. I have also worked with students on reading and I am familiar with several phonics reading and decoding methods.

I excel at tutoring one on one, or in groups of 2-3 students. I believe that a strong point of my tutoring style is that I never dumb down the material and I treat my students as mature adults. This show of respect boosts confidence significantly, both in younger and older children, and I have found this to be instrumental to motivation and getting through to my students. Above all, I truly enjoy tutoring. Seeing that, "Aha!" look on a student's face is what I strive for daily in my work.
