ExperienceHigh Energy Enthusiastic Experienced Tutor :D
I am drawn to the field of education and leadership roles, I worked in Lake Arrowhead Ranch in 2012 as an outdoor science camp employee, after passing the CBEST, and was responsible with a variety of children from 5th-8th graders that range between 10 to 20+, in a weekly basis.
Before returning to UCSC, where I currently reside, to finish an Anthropology/ Earth and Planetary Science Degree, I was also working as the Lead Instructor for both Mad Science, an after school science program and AVANZA, a tutoring agency that focuses on outreaching to impacted schools and providing laptops and preparation for the STAR and CAHSEE.
I can easily be reached through my email or my cell phone and if needed references from UCSC faculty as well as former and current employers. For more details about my qualification, please feel free to contact me. I thank you for your consideration and look forward to the opportunity to set up an interview.
HobbiesI am honored to have been a member in 2006 to 2011 of Rainbow Theatre at the University of California, Santa Cruz UCSC. The only multicultural theatre troupe within the UC system, it fosters the youth of the campus towards challenging the cultural criterion and providing an outlet for various ethnic communities. Within the rainbow family, I was fortunate to have gone to a majority of outreach programs and testify towards higher education. In 2009, as the Asian American Director, I was responsible for highlighting an Asian American narrative. However, I chose to also focus on queer issues with Stop Kiss, a play and a love story about two women by Diana Son. My co-director and I felt that as leaders among the fledgling queer people of color community, a minority within a minority, that our story deserved a space and a voice.
Along with Rainbow Theatre, I involved myself with the Filipino Student Association at UCSC in 2006 to 2011. There, I maintained a key role in our annual Filipino play, our PCC, the Philippine Cultural Celebration. Then again as its director and as its scriptwriter in 2008 for PCC 17, titled Bayan. The play focused on the events that transpired in the 20 year dictatorship of Ferdinand Marcos in the Philippines, culminating in the nonviolent people power revolution. The process of writing a historical play was challenging but allowed me a chance to interview elders of the Filipino community, and it was through these interviews that “Bayan” was born.
