Private tutor in Longmont, CO
Stanford University - Bachelors, English/Creative Writing , University of California-Los Angeles - Masters, English
I went to Stanford University to earn my undergraduate degree in English and creative writing. After graduating, I attended the University of California - Los Angeles for my masters degree in English literature and language. I also went to the University of Hawaii for a masters degree in applied linguistics and English as a second language. In addition, I had the opportunity to attend culinary school, where I earned degrees in pastry and culinary arts. I'm currently an English teacher at the high school level, and I've had opportunities to teach in Jordan, Singapore, and Hawaii. My experiences around the world have grown my appreciation of other cultures and given me new perspectives that I utilize to help my students learn better. I really enjoy tutoring because I get to work individually with students to focus on their exact needs. I get to spend time figuring out what each student knows and finds interesting, and I can focus on that to help them better understand the subject. I ask a lot of guiding questions to help students develop their own learning skills. This process gives me immediate progress reports while helping the student understand the improvements they have already made. Through this approach, students also become more confident in their abilities. In my spare time, I enjoy meditation, yoga, reading, hiking, and doing watercolor painting.
