More About Me
I love tutoring because of the academic and emotional impact it has on students. Coming from a low-income High School, I was deprived of academic resources and programs so I understand how important tutoring and receiving help is. I want to make sure that students like myself, a first-generation and low-income college student have access to the right resources to discover their full potential.
I love seeing city views, taking night walks on the beach and traveling! I have studied/interned abroad in Madrid, Spain for a summer and also visited Morocco, Portugal, Paris, London, Belgium, Italy, France, Mexico and Netherlands. I am bilingual, I speak both English and Spanish.

In 2017, I was awarded the AVID Kingston Scholarship and the Fountain Valley Women's Scholarship.
Within the past years, I have provided one-on-one for Elementary students who are at or below the average reading level and foster kids. I also co-facilitated a STEM based after school program for third grade girls and assisted a Kindergarten Teacher in their class. Not to mention that I taught English to five year olds in Madrid, Spain for a summer. On the High School level, I have tutored English Language Learners in various subjects ranging from U.S. History to Algebra 2. I have assisted first-generation and low-income students apply to Colleges and Financial Aid. Some students have had learning disabilities and ADHD, however that did not alter their learning process.
