Name: Mitra P.
Location: San Diego, CA
Title: Program Manager for SEL Programs

Overview:
I believe that children are the future and I am eager to be part of that journey. By maintaining an optimistic outlook even in difficult times, setting and achieving goals, and having fun I believe that children can teach us just as much as we teach them. During my time at Club Xcite, I've assisted in continuing to create quality relationships between instructors and students through various activities specific to each child, making the learning process fun and interactive.
Education: I am a recent graduate from the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) with a degree in Linguistics and Cognition. I graduated from Crescenta Valley High School in La Crescenta, CA, with experience in American Sign Language and all aspects of the performing arts. I plan to continue to grow personally and professionally with my current position at Club Xcite.
Experience: Several years ago, I began teaching children of all ages how to swim. My responsibility as a Water Safety Instructor involves creating a safe environment, maintaining a positive and enthusiastic class, and constructing a curriculum. Through my experience, I was able to apply patience and positive reinforcement when I started to tutor. I have interned with Reading STARS (Sensory Training Approach to Reading and Spelling - an enrichment program that makes reading fun and educational for children, ranging in language development, and becoming phonetically aware) and began working with children in a classroom setting. Through my experiences, I continue to apply what I have learned with Club Xcite through working in various enrichment programs and tutoring/mentoring in reading and writing.
Hobbies & Skills: I have a love for the arts, both performing and visual. I find that learning is enhanced through creativity. It was through my high school theater program where I overcame my own struggle of reading. I continue to support the arts by attending various art exhibits and theater productions in many communities. Some of my other passions are hiking, going to the beach, fitness interval training, working with children, ASL, dancing, and exploring the many food places in and around San Diego.
Why ClubXcite? I heard about this program through a colleague at UCSD. She explained to me the company's values of cherishing and enhancing children’s creativity through a positive atmosphere. I realized I wanted to be a part of Club Xcite. I have always found myself working with kids and I wanted to continue to expand my experience through their enrichment programs and tutoring/mentoring.
