Bio

I have been involved in education for over 15 years, first in outdoor education in California, teaching science through hands-on experiences like snorkeling, kayaking and hiking. In addition, I had the chance to travel as an international expedition guide in Central American and Africa with high school students, with a focus on history, anthropology, writing, and sociology.

I have been involved in education for over 15 years, first in outdoor education in California, teaching science through hands-on experiences like snorkeling, kayaking and hiking. In addition, I had the chance to travel as an international expedition guide in Central American and Africa with high school students, with a focus on history, anthropology, writing, and sociology. Five years ago I became a middle school classroom teacher in San Francisco, CA, specializing in English and history. I spent the last two years teaching overseas in Lisbon, Portugal, working with diverse students from around the world. My teaching credentials in both elementary education, and secondary English and Social Sciences, coupled with my enthusiasm and dedication for working with young people, make me a very understanding, flexible and reliable tutor.

I worked as a journalist for a number of years, before I started working as an environmental educator in California. As a previous writer, I believe I have the tools to support students with crafting essays, editing, and understanding complicated text. I also love reading, and have been teaching English to young people for over four years, so I feel confident in my skills as a teacher and mentor in all areas of English.

I have traveled the world seeking out interesting history wherever I go, and this has helped me as a middle school history teacher for the last four years. I am passionate about helping history come alive for students, and finding ways to connect it to our own lives. History can be boring and hard to relate to if not taught well, and I believe I can help bridge the gap for you, and help make it more interesting and comprehensible.

I enjoy getting to know my students interests, their strengths, and the things that are challenging. If you have questions about my style or approach to tutoring, please email me! I understand that not all students learn the same way, and I emphasize this in my teaching. Learning can be an amazing, difficult, and rewarding adventure. I hope I can help you on your path to new understanding, and help you appreciate your own successes.

Social Studies

As a history teacher for the last four years, my work was with social studies, and was an important part of my instruction. It is impossible to investigate history, without looking at all aspects of a culture, including their social and culturally significance. I feel very confident tutoring students in social studies.
