Maria is energetic, thoughtful and patient. She's attending Concordia University and wants to be a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. Her mother is her Role Model because she taught her to never give up, even when faced with diversity. Maria tried to be a role model by helping others and trying to improve herself. Maria enjoys hiking, music and going to the movies.
Maria says, "I am a good role model because of my heart. I am compassionate, honest, reliable, and sweet. I treat others how I would want to be treated. I am a good role model because I am a strong, independent woman, who is going to college and working in order to achieve my dreams. If there could only be two things someone could learn from me is how to be compassionate and how to never let anything stop you from being successful."
Heather is a motivated, bright & fun nanny! She's current working on her PhD in Psychology. She's worked with children at camp, babysitting, teaching yoga & in a hospital setting. Heather is working hard at school and enjoys working with kids because they remind her to be present and in the moment. She tries to be a role model by emulating her mother's characteristics, most of all, showing kindness in to others.
Heather says "I am a good role model because I believe in the power of modeling. Be the change you wish to see in others (Gandhi). I believe I must hold myself to the same standards I hold other people to. With that I also believe in humility and kindness, first starting with yourself and then it can radiate out to others."
I recently graduated Cum Laude from the University of Washington, where I double majored and minored in the Honors Department. There I was given the Citizenship Award, the Honors Award, and the Fritz Scholarship. I traveled and studied abroad in rural Sub-Sahara Africa in Zambia. I worked part time while paying for college full time. I was a Senior Gift Council member, a National Society of Collegiate Scholars member, a Peer Ambassador, and a Global Opportunities Adviser. I was an intern at the King County Correctional Facility as a inmate mentor and tutor, as well as a research intern for Elmer Dixon, who was the co-founder of the Seattle Black Panther Party.
I recently decided go back to school to pursue my Masters in Teaching. I am currently completing my Social Studies Endorsement at Portland Community College, and will be going back to the University of Washington in 2016 to become a High School Teacher.
I love anything and everything associated to education and would love to help middle school/high school aged children with studying, homework, test taking, organization or preparing for their SATs.

She tries to incorporate all ways of learning into her tutoring so that each student will succeed. Moriah currently assists with all levels of elementary and middle school homework tutoring.
Moriah says, "I overcame speech challenges as a child so I come from a place of understanding some of the struggle many of my clients have feeling like they have to fight harder than some of their peers to get the same results. I am also dependable, respectful, and have a work ethic that just won't quit."
