University of California, Berkeley (Nutritional Sciences)
My passion lies in providing better education for students. I got my undergraduate degree in Nutritional Science, but I have come to realize that I want future career to involve kids, specifically teaching. Starting in August of this year, I am attending UT Austin pursuing my master's degree in Early Childhood Education. I also plan to obtain my teacher certification and be working at an elementary school within the next few years.
I have spent the past year working as an AmeriCorps member with Communities in Schools, a non-profit organization that focuses on preventing high school dropouts. My primary role was a tutor and mentor at a local urban elementary school. My experience there has made me passionate in teaching kids and helping them realize their potentials. I enjoy celebrating even the smallest successes with students because every proud moment counts.
My main goal as a tutor is for students to have self-confidence in their school work and to have motivation to achieve. I tutor elementary subjects, specifically math and reading where I have had the most experience. I also specialize in working with test anxiety and using techniques to lower stress during testing.
I will be flexible with time, as well as any rescheduling issues that may come up. I would like to meet with students at coffee shops or libraries, but I am willing to travel to student's homes as well. Providing a safe and comfortable environment where the student can focus on learning is important.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I worked as AmeriCorps tutor and mentor at Communities in Schools of Central Texas. I worked specifically with kids who struggled in the classroom and they benefited from individual attention. We met once a week for an hour to work on reading, writing, or math. Starting in the fall, I will be attending UT Austin getting my mater's degree in Early Childhood Education and simultaneously obtaining my teacher certification for elementary education.
