I graduated from Cleveland State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology and Linguistics with high honors. I also hold a certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). Throughout my undergraduate career, I tutored a number of undergraduate students at a variety of levels in multiple subjects. I worked for the Tutoring and Academic Success Center at Cleveland State University as a student assistant and tutor in human diversity, essay writing, college math, to name a few. I worked with students from a number of different backgrounds from first generation college students to individuals whose second language is English to those who wanted extra help to achieve their academic goals. I have also tutored high school foreign exchange students in several subjects including English and grammar.
I believe having a strong set of study skills and foundation of key concepts makes a successful student and learner. Understanding how to take tests, understanding assignments, and seeing the relationship between school and learning is key in achieving academic success. I love using non-traditional materials to explain concepts in tutoring such as YouTube videos, online articles, and advertisements ranging from food to everyday household items. I offer online and one-on-one tutoring.
In my free time, I love to read. I read a variety of different books. I enjoy horror stories, science fiction, and westerns. I love studying and learning foreign languages. I have an entire shelf devoted to dictionaries, language textbooks, as well as novels in any given language. I love to travel, whether it is a short drive into downtown Cleveland or across the world to places such as England or India. I also spend many evenings playing strategy video games.
