"During my collegiate tenure, I maintained a 3.99 GPA, garnered numerous accolades for literary achievement, received top departmental honors, presented scholarship at various Chicagoland conferences, and became a published author; these efforts all culminated in my June 2012 graduation: summa cum laude, with dual majors in History and African Studies. After graduation, my girlfriend and I moved to Seattle to experience the Pacific Northwest.

Mainly I worked with high school students and adults, but outside of schools I have worked with children of all ages.

"I am currently pursuing a Master's of Education in math at Northwestern University, but my passion for learning and education long precedes my formal degree. Prior to returning to school, I worked in management consulting, where I often needed to explain complex quantitative analysis to clients unfamiliar with the math; this helped me develop the ability to understand and explain various approaches to quantitative concepts, which in turn enables me to identify and address causes of confusion.

"and Illinois Constitution tests. My teacher instilled in me the firm belief that the past shapes the present, and that those who understand history have the power to shape the future. Literature has always been a close second-favorite; I'm an avid reader of fiction both classic and contemporary, and I hope to someday publish a novel of my own.
