" I can provide your children with fun (as a lifelong theatre/ comedy lover and performer) as well as dedicated and serious homework help and tutoring. I was raised in a home where academics and good grades were considered my "job," and playtime a "privilege." Because of this, I graduated with a 4.7 GPA from high schoo. I am fluent in Spanish as I majored in it at UNC, studied abroad in Seville, Spain for six months, and then volunteered in Costa Rica in a daycare for five weeks. I also majored in History (American) in college, which I greatly enjoyed. In high school, I took AP Euro and AP US History and excelled on these tests, ...

"That's why I help my students to figure out answers on their own as opposed to telling them the answers. I ask my students questions to lead them through the solving process, which engages them and makes them more likely to learn and remember the material. I also think learning and laughing work well together, so I make my tutoring sessions educational and fun. I graduated from Williams College in 2012, where I majored in biology and completed pre-medical studies. I also spent a semester in Spain, taking all classes in Spanish at a Spanish university." ...

"However, it also depends on proper training and subject knowledge. In this respect, my teaching has been enriched by graduate study (M.A., M.Phil, medieval European history), including intensive study of both history and languages, including German, Latin, French and Spanish, which I speak fluently. Furthermore, my teaching has been shaped by many years working as a high-school history / social studies teacher: I have taught global history, and several electives: political philosophy, modern Latin America, strategic thinking and religion.
