Born and raised in Denver, Colorado. At times, struggled with my grades and school work as a youth. Now I am college senior excelling in the classroom. I feel like with my experiences as a youth, and my hard work and dedication, I will be able to help show these children what it takes to succeed. Spent some time as a youth being tutored (3rd & 4th grade). Also, volunteered for several tutoring sessions at Skinner Middle School's the Neighborhood Center (2013). These sessions were spent with 6th-8th grade children. As stated above, I have experience with both sides of the spectrum. As a tutor, I feel like a logical, simplistic, goal-oriented approach would work best. That being said, each child presents unique circumstances and these must be met head on. I feel like it is important to connect with these children on a personal level in order to earn their trust. With this approach, success should follow. Fun Facts: I have a genuine passion for helping other people and a strong desire to mentor. When tutoring, it makes me happy to know that I am making a real difference in a child's life. As for my personal life, I am wholly focused on my studies and the educational successes of my children.
