UCLA graduate teaches French and English Literature, including creative writing (fiction, poetry)

Methodology

My goal with teaching is to give my students the tools they need to face challenges and solve problems on their own. With essay writing, I try not to correct papers, but instead speak more abstractly about what they need to improve. With French I help my students find their weak areas and their strengths, so that they know where to focus in the future. I give them the foundations, rather than just throwing exercises at them for something to do.

Background

I have a double major from UCLA in English and French. I graduated magna cum laude in Phi Beta Kappa and Pi Delta Phi honors societies. I am a Francophile, who has lived in France and loves to write creatively.

Volunteer
American Friends of the Oasis of Peace, volunteer, Sherman Oaks, CA
July-August 2014
After going to Israel for a few weeks with a Jewish community organization, I was very distraught and confused about how the conflict with Palestine was playing out. I found this organization and learned more details and met a Palestinian woman, who lost most of her family members in Gaza that summer, while I was volunteering. I was able to write an article about my experience as well as attend peace rallies and visit the office of Representative Brad Sherman in Van Nuys to discuss making changes to the U.S. response to this catastrophe with individuals representing different sides of the conflict.

The Writer’s Den

Spring and Fall 2017

Led Creative Writing class in public middle school in Watts serving primarily underprivileged students for two quarters. It was a challenge to engage the students with so little time (a very long LA commute and our time slot was at the end of the day when the students were least engaged) and as we were the last class every Friday, when the students were most jittery. We planned creative writing activities, both individual and collaborative, that would excite the curiosity of the students.

Writing Center Tutor

Spring 2015- Spring 2016

At my high school, in each class of Juniors, 5 students were chosen by the English department to tutor the school in academic essay writing. I was selected and really enjoyed the opportunity of working individually with students to empower them to be more confident and persuasive writers. It helped strengthen my writing as well.

Extracurriculars
• Contributor: UCLA’s FEM Magazine, arts & creative section
• As a member of FEM’s arts and creative section, I contributed poems and short stories for print and online issues. FEM was one of my favorite activities outside of class at UCLA, because of the community. It is an extremely vital space for female identifying people to gain confidence in self-expression and to create a community of cooperative individuals, who believe strongly in intersectional feminist values and in educating oneself and others about feminist issues. I believe it was an important activity to learn to defend my beliefs and feelings, while still being an open-minded and understanding individual, who wishes to do a service to the whole school community.

• Shakespeare Company at UCLA
• Elected to serve on “Membership Committee” in my cooperative living community of 430 Los Angeles students, but I had to resign due to the virus
• Worked in the kitchen and was a front office desk worker for about a year in the Coop
• Studied classical ballet for 15 years
