I graduated from Marietta College in 2011, with a Bachelor of the Arts in Political Science and a minor in French. For the past four years I have worked with community organizing non-profits in Ohio and, briefly, in Florida. In my spare time, I developed my own curriculum to pursue studies in International Conflict Resolution, which I will be studying this Fall at American University. I worked as a tutor during my time at Marietta, where I focused on helping those studying French and Political Science. I also worked extensively with the writing center, as writing consultant, and in our Communications Department, as a speech coach. My background has lent itself well to tutoring English, Reading, Writing, and History. I believe in working with students in a way that empowers them to build their own skills- an approach with an eye on long term sustainability and skill development. I think that it is important to be able to find fun in the learning process and I try to incorporate that in all of my sessions. My main hobby is learning, but outside of that I love to be out doors. I often go running or hiking in the area and I try to read every day. For a few weekends each year, I also act a judge for public speaking tournaments throughout the state.
