I am a Miami native and a third-year at the University of Miami. I am passionate about service and working with children. I have a strong work ethic and am intrinsically motivated to help others succeed. I consider myself an approachable, positive, and levelheaded person. I seek challenging and rewarding experiences and am excited about making a contribution to my community. I believe in being impeccable with your word and leaving people better than you found them. I plan on attending graduate school for speech pathology and one day hope to have my own practice. I have served as a private tutor to middle school and high school students in the subjects of Mathematics and English. I also tutored Miami-Dade students in Math and Reading for the FCAT. I have also been a Biology workshop leader at the University. My approach to tutoring is in line with Frog Tutoring’s motto: "Nurturing Hidden Potential." I believe every student has something amazing to offer and it is my role to help give him or her the confidence and skills he/she needs to flourish. Each student has different learning needs so one must adapt his/her approach in order to best help that student. If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you. Tutors should be flexible and engaged so that they can inspire their students to want to learn and use their potential. Fun Facts: I am heavily involved with an organization called Camp Kesem. This national non-profit provides free, weeklong summer camps to children who have been affected by a parent’s cancer. Being able to provide these children a carefree week where they can just be kids has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have been fortunate enough to have. I am also an officer for the University’s chapter of Psi Chi International Honor Society and a liaison for Student Government. In my spare time I try staying active by cycling and participating in other outdoor activities. I enjoy photography and reading. I also like adventure and traveling. This year I am excited to be doing a Senior Honors Thesis in Psychology.
