I studied English Literature, Spanish, and Philosophy at WWU. Since I graduated I have taught English abroad from Kindergarten to University students. I have lived and worked in Seoul, Korea and Badajoz, Spain. I also tutored various levels and ages in Badajoz outside of work. Besides my diverse teaching experience I have learned Spanish outside of the academic setting in Chile and Spain. I did a 5 month study abroad program in Valparaiso, Chile and worked for a year in Spain. This means I have an understanding of the vocabulary and grammar difference between Latin American Spanish and Spain Spanish. Teaching abroad has allowed me to continue my education and fund my own travel. I am 25 years old and have been to 30 countries. In my free time I have continued my passion for literature, creative writing, and drawing. I am a published writer and I am working on my own graphic novel. I want to be a tutor because I enjoy education and the opportunities that can grow from learning new things. For example, this summer I am taking a French class so that I can be multilingual one day. I think each age group has something fun and interesting about them and I know how to adapt tutoring sessions to every age group.

I love to travel because I am constantly learning new things and forced out of my comfort zone. I enjoy playing ukulele, drawing, cooking, hiking, writing anything from songs to essays, learning new language, reading, spending time with family in friends, and laying on a beach for hours.
