ExperienceLast year I graduated from the Harvard Graduate School of Education with a doctorate in Education. I currently teach in a high school in Spring Branch ISD and am implementing a restorative justice program that will be spread throughout the district (our program was recently featured on the national NPR). I am looking to tutor a few hours a week (at most 5 for now) as I have a small child and have to work around my teaching and child care schedule. I have taught middle school as well, and graduate level courses in education.
I have tutored with various organizations: Sylvan Learning Center in White Plains, NY (2001-2002) and an SAT Prep organization in Houston (1996-1997). At Sylvan I tutored one on one and in groups of 3, and worked about 10 hours a week. In Houston I tutored about 8 hours a week.
I tutored after school when I was a full time teacher in HISD for five years (2001-2006), and currently tutor students in the In School Suspension room at the school where I have been for two years in Spring Branch ISD. I have helped dozens of people write college and graduate school essays that resulted in their successful admission to top tier institutions. I also worked at the Writing Center as a tutor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (2010-2012).
I have worked with or taught elementary aged children through senior citizens. I have experience working with youth from all social classes and races. I taught at Choate Rosemary Hall in a summer program in 2000 and at the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth summer program in 2001.
Though my background is in the humanities I loved and excelled in math in high school. I have a passion for learning from and with young people. For example, I took my students on a field trip to Harvard last year where they conducted a training on the peer mediation program I run. I enjoy helping students overcome mental blocks to see their true potential and intelligence.
HobbiesWriting, reading, dancing, movies, social justice, and spending time with my daughter, husband, friends, and parents
