Bachelor of the Arts in History at California State University Fresno (3.67 GPA) Spring 2011
My education has involved everything from basic historical knowledge, test and essay preparation, to advanced researching techniques, and evaluating academic sources.
Experience1 1/2 years as a community college adjunct instructor in US History, worked with students at both high school and college levels
SES tutor for Fresno CORAL from January-May 2013, tutored and assessed K-12 students in Reading/Language Arts
4 years as a K-12 Substitute teacher in Fresno County
I am looking to be a tutor partly as a supplement to the adjunct work I am already doing, but also because of the love of teaching I have discovered with these jobs and the experiences I have gained from them. Having gone through both undergrad and graduate schooling, I have a strong knowledge of what is expected of students at the college level, and want to better train students for that environment in ways that regular teaching just cannot do.
HobbiesI enjoy reading history and fiction, playing video games, watching movies, as well as travelling to foreign places and seeing the sights. I have traveled as far as Israel, and am hoping to be able to see key areas of Europe one day. I like to use those interests to help teach and relate to my students, but also strive to be clear and firm in what I expect of students academically.
