I received my Masters degree in Humanities with a focus in Cinema and Media Studies from the University of Chicago. Before earning my Masters degree, I attended the University of Louisville, where I received my Bachelors of Art in Humanities with a minor in Film Studies. During my time at the University of Louisville, I pursued a variety of different majors, in French, Philosophy, Math and Physics due to the diverse range of my passions, and finally settled on the Humanities because it allowed me to study all of them at once. I am most passionate about teaching anything within the Arts (e.g. Literature), French language and culture, and the purer side of Mathematics, where the abstractions of numbers give us the freedom to do with them what we will. I also love helping students work their way through the daunting task of preparing for standardized tests. I have often found that my past students have gotten tangled in the problems that have been set out for them, and I have always found success in teaching the conceptual framework behind these problems, so that they learn to find solutions by whatever means they prefer. As indicated by my degrees at the beginning, I am incredibly passionate about film and film studies – I am a huge movie buff. But perhaps the most important thing I can say about myself is that I don’t believe that any subject is out of reach for any student. It’s just about finding a way through the jargon to something that makes sense.
