This is currently my third year at Fresno State. I am studying Nutritional Science with a minor in Communication and have maintained on the Dean's List thus far. I am actively involved with the community and have even received recognition for my extensive volunteer hours by the nutrition club on campus. When I graduate I anticipate to attend UC Davis' Nutritional Biology program for research purposes. My overall career goal is to become a clinical register dietitian. Ever since my sophomore year of high school five years ago, I have volunteered in many programs that involved teaching. Most recently however, I created a lesson plan for Spanish-speaking elementary school-aged students that focused on the basics of nutrition. At the end of the lesson, it felt great knowing these children had acquired a better understanding of the subject. Aside from that, a group of Fresno State students and I attend different elementary schools every week and teach a range of students from k-6. Frog Tutoring gives me an opportunity to share valuable knowledge with students in order to positively impact their lives. I have had a handful of teachers who have inspired me throughout the years and have kept me motivated to continue the cycle in return. An important aspect I have learned when teaching is having patience and staying positive. If one is not patient, it may become difficult to teach regardless of how well one knows the material. I am aware everyone has their own way of learning material and it would be in the best interest to adapt to a students' learning style. I would assure the student understands the concept rather than memorize it. I would have the student engage in the lesson and would ask questions to affirm he/she understands the content. Fun Facts: Something that I always enjoy is outdoor activities. This could be anything from taking my dog on a walk to snowboarding during the wintertime. I've always been one to try new and adventurous sports such as rock climbing and one day I'd like to skydive! I also enjoy listening to a variety of music such as country and 40's music.
