EducationGraduated from San Francisco State University with a BA in English Literature, GPA: 3.9 in 2011, and an MA in 2015.
Currently: Teaching Credential Student at CSULB
ExperienceAt San Francisco State University (SFSU), I have been a tutor at the English Tutoring Center for four years, the Learning Assistance Center for six semesters, the EOP Center for one semester, and I have been an English instructional assistant and English instructor with EOP Summer Bridge 2012, 2013 & 2014. Also, while in San Francisco, I have worked in GED workshops, done private tutoring with students from around the bay area, and been a teacher assistant for upper division literature courses. Each of these tutoring endeavors has given me experience working with a wide range of students, from academically, economically, and culturally diverse backgrounds. Despite the students backgrounds my personal pedagogical practices and beliefs remain the same; I believe in a holistic “Freireian” approach to education, with an emphasis on dialogic interactions and a focus on the development of critical thinking skills. In addition, I have taken courses on, and developed skills towards, specific concrete practices to pass along to the students I work with, such as, various annotation methods, writing processes, grammar checking techniques, and etc. I believe the point of tutoring is to help students develop versatile skills/methods which they can utilize for the rest of their academic career and beyond.
I have taken and continue to take various educator based workshops, seminars, and courses, including: the ETC’s “Grammar Slammer,” the ETC’s “Teaching Generation 1.5,” the LAC’s AU697 (tutoring across disciplines), the LAC’s weekly writing workshop meetings, Summer Bridge’s various training workshops, and the SFSU English department’s weekly TA practicum workshops. In addition, I have taken grammar and composition courses through the SFSU English department.
HobbiesI spend a lot of time reading, frequenting various museums, cooking, thinking about etymology and playing music. I am also a big documentary fan and enjoy traveling when I have the time.
