"I also studied Philosophy, History and Sociology. As an undergraduate I became a writing tutor and coached other college students toward improving their general study skills (time management, test prep, note taking, etc.) At the end of my degree, I spent a summer studying literature and writing at the University of Cambridge. Upon returning to the United States, I began working with at-risk teens in residential treatment centers in Utah. Those inspiring experiences reignited my interest in teaching, so I enrolled in a university licensing program." ...
