Polliann

I have always loved languages, writing, and foreign affairs. Consequently, it was no surprise that I chose to go to Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service. Here, I majored in International Culture and Politics where I was able to become proficient in writing, political science, and economics. I also obtained my certification of French proficiency during a language immersion program while I studied abroad in Tours, France. As a result, I enjoy tutoring in many of these same subject areas, with writing and government being the two areas I most enthusiastic about.

While in high school I tutored my peers in math, in college I tutored peers in writing, and I also tutored high school students in the Cristo Rey Network while I was at Georgetown as part of an academic externship. Yet, I enjoy working with students of all ages. A lot of my experience in working with younger students stems from having a large family with many younger cousins and other family members that I have been close with.

My interest in working with a variety of people is what led me to law school where I largely focused on international law, criminal justice, immigration, and human rights. Through many experiences both in and out of the courtroom, I have had the opportunity to work with individuals from all walks of life and many backgrounds. I believe that my passion for working with people, and my interest in making complex materials easily accessible to others, is what makes me a great tutor.

I enjoy approaching materials from unique points of view so that students always have a fresh perspective on subjects they are uncomfortable with. I am a foodie and love cooking, so sometimes I enjoy using incorporating food into lesson plans. Lately, I have enjoyed playing tennis and cycling. I travel whenever possible, and I aim to live by learning something new everyday.
