I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Global Studies with a minor in Creative Writing. I took French courses throughout college. In the Fall of 2013, I studied abroad in Montpellier, France. While there, I lived with a French host family, studied French language and literature at a French language institute, and also enrolled part-time at a local French university. While I was there, I volunteered as a Teaching Assistant for English classes at a high school.
I also have experience tutoring high school seniors. I have worked with them on their college essay personal statements, AP English classes, and I've helped them to improve and edit their writing assignments.
As an ardent Francophile, my favorite subject to tutor is French. Although, with my background and interest in creative writing, I enjoy helping students with any and all writing assignments, from college essays to history papers. I like to incorporate my personal experiences with French and with writing into my tutoring sessions because I believe that small connections can help students to remember and retain a lesson. I am a firm believer that every student has his or her own learning style, and that it is my role as a Tutor to specifically address those individual needs to maximize a student's learning and growth.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading and writing, going to concerts, cooking, spending time with my family, and studying French.
