ExperienceAs a tutor, I believe that all people should have the opportunity to obtain an education if they have the drive to do so. Further, I think that, to a certain extent, most people have the same capacity to learn, grow, and improve themselves. Despite this similarity, I realize that every student learns in a slightly different way. That being said, I tailor my lesson plans to the specific needs of the student. Unlike most people, I think that history is a fascinating subject. I have spent most of my life studying history and enjoy teaching it because I think that it provides students with a unique perspective on the world and its current state. I have always felt that both English and Spanish literature are great ways to expose my students to history. Therefore, I like to incorporate these texts into my lessons. I completed my college education at the University of California with a B.A. in History. Education was my minor area of study. I pursued my minor in graduate school and am on my way to earning an M.A. in Secondary Social Studies Education. My tutoring experience includes time spent revising student essays, teaching classes at museums, and working with high school students through government programs. When I have the chance, I love to read, garden, and bake.
