I am an educator with eight years of experience teaching English Language Arts as well as English as a Second language. I have a Master's degree in Media and Communication Studies and am currently enrolled in a Master's in Education and a teaching credential in English. I enjoy teaching and use a student centered approach in my teaching. I try to focus on students experiential learning. I aim to help students employ higher level thinking skills that will allow to think, read, and write critically.

I have 120 hour TEFL certification and am currently working on my CA Single Subject Credential in English. I attended UCLA for my undergraduate, and completed two Master's theses for my degree in Media and communication Studies. For ELA or literature tutoring I have strong editing skills and an advanced understanding of the structures and syntax of academic writing. For ESL, I have an advanced understanding of English grammar as well as the cultural literacy that comes from having lived abroad and studied a foreign language myself.

I lived in Japan for 8 years and have upper intermediate Japanese ability. Along with this I can aid students in conversational Japanese that they may not experience in a classroom setting which includes slang and area specific dialects that I learned from living in Fukuoka, Japan.

Critical literacy is the gateway to other academic disciplines. If you cannot comprehend and think critically about complex texts then your ability to synthesize and employ the information in those texts will be limited. I aim to help you with that. Building your critical literacy an critical writing ability will help in all other academic disciplines and will improve your chances of success in post-secondary education and beyond. Let's get started.
