I graduated from Mt. San Antonio Community College (Mt. SAC) with a 3.7 GPA and an AA in English.
From there, I transferred to UCLA, and in 2012, received by B.A. in English and a 3.5 GPA; right now, I'm in an M.A. program at Cal Poly Pomona with a cumulative GPA of 3.8.
My major has always been English with an emphasis on Literature and Writing.
ExperienceEver since I started Mt. SAC in 2008, I began working as a tutor on campus. For two and a half years, I developed my skills teaching all levels of English offered at the college, from Eng67, basic writing skills, to Eng1C, Critical Thinking and Composition.
When I transferred to UCLA in 2010, I began working with kids on campus at the Early Education and Care Center. In my classroom of 3-5 year olds, I learned how to help them develop fine motor skills, basic math concepts, and interpersonal growth skills.
Upon graduation in 2012, I continued working with young people and adults at the Lindamood Bell Learning Processes Center, but this time, I developed another set of skills: working with dyslexic, autistic, and hyperactive students. Through a set of cognitive-based processes, I taught children, young adults, and adults how to read and process basic stories, textbooks, and fiction.
From Lindamood Bell, I then began working at Chaffey College in 2014 at the Success Center. This job was much like my Mt. SAC one in the way that I helped college students improve their own reading and writing skills.
I also began doing copy editing; now, I work for a standardized test prep center helping high school students understand and score highly on the SAT and ACT.
HobbiesWriting is not only my job, it's my hobby! In my spare time, I write short stories and poetry. In fact, I have had dozens of poems and short stories published in local publications, and I even have been published by Cornell University's literary journal! I love playing around with language and making up stories. I also enjoy spending time cooking with my friends and hiking.
