"I have worked at the US Department of State Foreign Service Institute, and most recently, I have worked at the White House in the Office of Presidential Correspondence. Out of all these experiences, the strongest lesson I learned was about the power of clear writing. Writing is a passion of mine and I firmly believe it goes hand-in-hand with reading. As a psychology student at Penn State University, one of the most impactful theories was on the power of mimicking."

"Since sophomore year of high school, I have tutored students in Latin and Italian and more recently also in helping students prepare for the SAT and GRE. In my senior year of college, I was appointed as the Classical Studies Department tutor for Latin. One of the things I enjoy most about tutoring students in Latin and Italian is helping them build a stronger foundation in their native English language as well as in the foreign language. Over the course of my years as a tutor I have seen my students expand their vocabulary and rhetorical skills in English through their study of foreign and classical language, and I firmly believe that by ...

" In college, I tutored peers in Statistics, Sociology, and Biology. After college, I worked as a partner teacher in a second grade classroom, which was by far one of the most fulfilling jobs I have experienced. Working with young minds on this level reminded me of how I first became enamored with Math and Science, which continue to be my favorite subjects overall. I believe all students can excel in any subject when the basics are taught in a way that is fun and on par with individual learning styles."

I have extensive experience babysitting young children, and have also tutored both middle and high school aged students.
