Bio

After my experience as a volunteer English tutor working in the Pilsen neighborhood, I fell in love with teaching and helping students communicate their ideas. After graduating college, I began working as a tutor for 5th-9th graders. My passion for literature and communication drives many of my lessons, yet I am adaptable and can work within any parameters.

After my experience as a volunteer English tutor working in the Pilsen neighborhood, I fell in love with teaching and helping students communicate their ideas. After graduating college, I began working as a tutor for 5th-9th graders. My passion for literature and communication drives many of my lessons, yet I am adaptable and can work within any parameters.

My primary objective when teaching is to give students new information while simultaneously giving them the tools to express their understanding. Often, I've seen teachers disseminate a lot of useful information, but they lack the integration into the students' lives that is necessary to cultivate the attitude of a life -long learner. I am driven by the vision of seeing students express their potential and to allow them to see the utilization of their mind.

My educational background is diverse, touching a wide variety of subjects. I did my freshman year at Clemson University in South Carolina where I began a degree in Engineering. I then moved to Chicago and went on to earn my bachelors degree in Communications from DePaul University. It was there that I studied advanced writing and composition, teaching English as a foreign language, and public speaking. Before college, my composite ACT score was a 31, while I scored a 34 in mathematics.

I'd love the opportunity to get to know my students more, so don't hesitate to contact me or schedule a lesson.

Public Speaking

While studying communications in college, I took a variety of public speaking courses required for my major. I have done data analysis and have given presentations on this analysis and the conclusions we drew from them. I also have experience running meditation seminars to groups of +15 people while I was working for a communications firm.
