More About Me
As a Cognitive Behavioral Neuroscience major, I had experience working at UCSD’s Early Learning and Cognition Lab for a year. In this position, I was teaching and directing children ages 5-8 on games and tasks. I have also been a classroom aide where I helped elementary school-age children with their classwork for several years. In my time as a coach for Top Soccer, I gained more expertise as a leader and an instructor. I have skills and a passion for teaching others, and am hoping to one day be a speech therapist where I can help teach those with speech problems.
In high school, I earned the cumulative GPA of 4.33, and in college I currently have a GPA of 3.94 entering into my senior year. My relevant coursework includes the subjects of AP Literature, AP Language and Composition, AP Statistics, AP Government, AP Economics, AP World and U.S. History, and AP Environmental Science. I also have taken a variety of Calculus, Biology, and Psychology courses at the college level.
My skills as a leader and as a presenter are something I can see myself contributing to this position. I have been a captain of many sports teams throughout my life, a presenter for UCSD’s ELC Lab, a presenter for the Democrats of El Dorado County, as well as the President of Sigma Kappa sorority at UCSD. This has required high levels of organization, leadership and speaking skills, as well as ceaseless motivation. Balancing my extracurriculars, work, and academics has given me priceless experiences. I believe my expertise will make me stand out amongst other applicants and assist my success in this position as a tutor.
I know how to make learning fun and engaging, and I would love the opportunity to work with you!
