Hello all! I was born in the Western African country of Liberia. I came to the U.S. at the early age of 2 due to civil war crisis. Growing up as a child, my father had always been an inspiration when it came to education. I saw him receive his Masters and Doctorate in Education from Boston University through a Fulbright scholarship. I wished to imitate even half of his perseverance and determination. Through his motivations, I hoped to give back to children who did not have a positive role model in their lives.
My favorite subjects were always English and the arts because it allowed me to express myself. I attended the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and obtained a Bachelors in Liberal Arts: English and Political Science concentration. I spent two years of my life teaching 6th and 7th grade English Language Arts through an AmeriCorps program known as Citizen Schools. During this time I worked with Boston's inner city youth during the Extended learning day prepping for standardize testing, improving grades within the classroom, and creating and distributing lesson plans to staff members.
I currently work for a non-profit residential home with at-risk youth between the ages of 13 - 19. I continue to be a force within the classroom and promote student self-esteem and determination. I know that I will be a great fit as a tutor for I am understanding, compassionate and goal oriented.
Hope to meet you soon and i'm willing to answer any questions! Best
