I am a PhD student in American Religious History at Claremont Graduate University. I also have a Masters from Claremont School of Theology, and I received my BA from Sarah Lawrence College.
Before beginning graduate study, I was a full-time Admissions Counselor at Sarah Lawrence College from 2008-2010. During my Masters education, I have continued working part-time in undergraduate admission offices. I have read and evaluated over 1,000 admissions essays written by high school students, interviewed hundreds of college admissions applicants, and participated in numerous Admissions Committee meetings at which admissions decisions were made. I have also taught high school students preparing for the Georgia High School Graduation Test and coordinated the student workers in the Office of Admission at Sarah Lawrence College.
My favorite subjects by far are History and Religion (obviously, or I wouldn't be getting my PhD in Religious History), but I also have a background in literature, writing, and even some performing arts. I have a passion for higher education that is best reflected in my experience in undergraduate admissions. I love seeing a high school student realize they've found that perfect match, and my experience in Admissions Committees can help anyone get into that perfect college.
I love history to the point I generally find myself reading nonfiction books and watching historical documentaries. I am also a sports nut, and generally follow the Georgia teams in all sports (Braves, Falcons, Hawks, Bulldogs) but also Arsenal Football Club in England.
I look forward to tutoring you.
