Sabrina says: “Hello! My name is Sabrina. I grew up in Nagoya, Japan, and in early 2017, I moved to Oregon to go to college. I attended Lane Community College first and then transferred to the University of Oregon, where I double-majored in Linguistics and Spanish. At both schools, I worked as a writing tutor, and it was one of the best decisions I made during my undergraduate career. Working as a writing tutor gave me insight into what students from various backgrounds struggled with in the academic system and gave me opportunities to directly aid students in navigating classes, college applications, scholarship essays, standardized tests, etc. When tutoring students, I ensure that students remain in charge of their goals; my role is to help students build on their skills and gain new ones to achieve those goals. In my free time, I enjoy hiking and other outdoor activities, reading books, writing letters and making people laugh.”
