EducationMy education includes a Bachelor of Art degree from the University of California, Santa Barbara in English, and a Master's degree in Educational Leadership from Framingham State University. While at Santa Barbara, I made the Dean's List five times, while I graduated magna cum laude with a GPA of 3.87 from my graduate program. On the SAT, I scored in the 98th percentile on the reading section, and in the 99th percentile on the writing section. On the Praxis II English Literature and Composition exam, I scored a 193 out of 200, earning an ETS Letter of Recognition for Excellency.
ExperienceI am a California credentialed English teacher who has been teaching English for seven full years now at the high school and middle school levels. I have taught British, American, and World Literature classes, as well as I.B. and A.P. classes. For electives, I have taught creative writing, journalism, debate, and knowledge bowl. Apart from this, I am fully bilingual and have taught Spanish grammar, pronunciation, reading, and writing to both adults and children.

As your tutor, I will be helpful, patient, and understanding. I believe that all students are capable of learning and I know that I can help you be successful in the classroom. I look forward to working with you in the future!
HobbiesI enjoy reading and writing in my spare time, as well as traveling. I have visited over a dozen countries and have lived abroad as well in Costa Rica for several years. My experiences have helped form me into an open-minded, creative, and friendly person, one who enjoys teaching as much as learning!
