A MSW student with a passion to guide scholars into excelling and reach their educational goals! 5 years experience!

Methodology

My teaching methods include personalized methods of comprehension and include various visual and audio aids to ensure that learners across the board can be met where they are. I base my class on engagement and compassion. I know how hard English can be, and for that I attempt to rely heavily on my learnings of compassion and commitment. My hope to aid ESL students, and non-ESL learners who are attempting to find strength and comfort through English (both written and oral) as I did.

Background

I am a MSW student at Our Lady of the Lake University currently and an English Teaching Fellow as of late! I've wanted to branch out and see who I can help academically during this unique time! I received my B.S at the University of Texas at Austin in Youth and Community Studies (Minors in Sociology and Social Work). I'm an refugee immigrant who came to the states at the age of three, and found solace in reading books and creative writing!
