I am a California girl born and raised, growing into my love of education at Cal and moving on to study teaching in the MAT program at USC. Being in the classroom, surrounded by the excitement of inquisitive, engaged faces has been its own reward for my recent shift from a business management career. As I pursue having my own classroom, tutoring is an excellent way to assist students in reaching their "aha! moments", bringing them closer to their academic and personal goals. I am very personable, full of smiles, and enjoy making learning fun. I take great pride in seeing students accomplish things they may not have considered possible; showing them that knowledge and success is not only something they should pursue but something they continue to develop every day from right where they stand!
