As an undergraduate, I studied English with concentrations in Creative Writing and African-American literature. I also minored in Economics. After graduating, I continued my education by enrolling in a Master of Arts program for Political Science, which I am currently pursuing. I enjoy information and doing research, but I am most passionate about writing. I regularly compose short stories, and I have also worked on long non-fiction pieces for publication. My favorite part of the writing process is workshopping with other authors. Peer-editing is very valuable, and my natural inclination toward peer-to-peer guidance led to my interest in tutoring.

I love exchanging knowledge with students. I have over four years of tutoring experience at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral level, and I enjoy working with younger learners. I believe in fostering a positive, open environment where students are encouraged to ask questions.

In addition to being very knowledgable in my subject areas, I have unique life experiences that help me inspire and relate to passionate learners. I have traveled to 38 US States and seven foreign countries (France, Italy, Monaco, England, Germany, Morocco, and Canada). My interest in literature lead me to study abroad at the University of Oxford, where I spent a summer internalizing British culture and Shakespeare's canon.

I recently relocated to the greater NYC area after getting married. Before I moved, I volunteered at a local community theater and an animal shelter in northeastern Pennsylvania, where I attended college and graduate school. I look forward to becoming a positive, active addition in my new community, and I am so happy to have a rewarding career as a tutor!

Although I have done a lot in my life so far, there is always more to learn and accomplish. I believe the best way to gain new experiences is to be approachable and willing to listen. This theory of openness has helped me overcome tremendous difficulties and serves as an additional asset when tutoring. I am not omniscient, so I must always be accepting of my own ignorance. Students who have worked with me would say I'm honest, hard-working, and eager to discover new things. If I don't know something, I will find out, and we can learn together. In working with students, I promise I will never pretend to know all the answers, and I will always be honest with my own shortcomings. Establishing honesty and trust with a fellow learner is my number one priority. I find interest in education flourishes after that first step, and curiosity fuels excitement toward learning.
