I just graduated from Duke University with B.A.'s in Sociology and Theater Studies! I studied both fields because I am fascinated by how the stories we tell impact our society. This love for story-telling influenced my passion for Literature and I was fortunate to have the opportunity to teach Literature courses to 8th grade students through the prestigious Breakthrough Collaborative Program in NYC during the Summer of 2011. I've worked as a tutor and peer mentor from middle school and throughout high school and college in both formal and informal settings. I still get excited each time I get to work with a new student! My specialties are in Standardized Test Preparation, Literature, French, ISEE, and Writing! In my work as a teacher and tutor, I have found that preparation, patience, and a positive attitude are the essential tools for grasping new material, so I plan to use those tools with each student to ensure success! I am originally from Gainesville, Florida, but I am very excited to be in California! In my free time I like to hang out with friends,read, sing, bake, and listen to music!
