EducationMy bachelor's is in Political Science with a minor in Spanish from the University of Houston.
ExperienceAs a tutor, I focus on Math and Political Science for all grades through college. I am currently working on a second degree in computer science with a minor in math. In addition to helping students with their class work, I write articles for my blog, a site about general observations and viewpoints of readings. While the majority of my coursework in my major centers on writing projects about political literature, American literature, and History, my interests are in math and general writing. My writing blog is at lifeandarticles.com
For one year I have tutored high school and college level students taking math or composition courses. I present concepts or ask questions to students so that they can work problems and produce their papers. These can be topic ideas, formation of arguments, strategy, audience, purpose, and editing. For reading, I've found that going through a text and note taking, as well as discussion for reflection keeps students interested and promotes their thoughts in their own words for understanding a text. I make use of literary elements and background knowledge, not just to create a collection of facts but also to get students to appreciate the value of what they are reading. This helps the reading process and writing.
I love to tutor and help students in grade school and college improve their math and writing. I enjoy creating articles, the English and Spanish language, and furthering of the mind to reach our fullest potential. I bring forward a passion for learning, inspiration, and a personable, easy-going personality.
HobbiesI like teaching, reading, writing, music, coffee, and travel. I have visited Mexico, in addition to Jamaica, and Bora Bora, part of the Leeward Islands in the Society Islands of French Polynesia.
