I have experience tutoring elementary through high school students, and am most experienced in teaching English and Spanish. I grew up speaking Spanish because my mother is from Venezuela, and also speak Portuguese. I have significant experience in providing assistance with the writing process due to my position as the Editor in Chief of my school newspaper. Tutoring has been a consistent part of my life because I love watching the students progress and grow throughout the year. After interning at Teach for America Baltimore in 2011, I developed a strong interest in education reform and hope to become involved in international education policy.
