EducationUniversity of Texas Austin - BA, Psychology
ExperienceMy educational and professional background is quite extensive and varied. I hold a bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Texas at Austin. I am currently working on my graduate degree at Texas Woman's University. My goal is to become a school psychologist.In the past, I was a corps member with Teach for America, where I started gaining experience in education. I am certified to teach math to students in grades 4-8, and in generalist for grades EC-6. My direct experience came from teaching fifth and sixth grade math during my two-year corps experience. I also worked with a nonprofit algebra prep company for two years.Within my current graduate work, I am researching various subjects regarding children with learning disabilities and deficits in functions. In spring 2015, I taught an undergraduate developmental psychology class at my school. I have tutored in several organizations, including the Shelton School and UT Learning Center, and I worked with students that have learning disabilities.My favorite subject to teach is middle school math. I also enjoy tutoring public speaking, lower- and upper-level math, social sciences, and writing. I can help students with developing good study skills and preparing for tests as well. Since students learn in different ways, I spend time figuring out which way works best for each of my students, whether they have special needs or are gifted.Outside of my graduate studies and tutoring, I spend time with my family and friends, watch movies, listen to music, and attend basketball games.
HobbiesReading, watching movies and basketball games, listening to music, and spending time with family and friends
