I studied International Affairs at the George Washington University in Washington, DC. While in college, I was very involved in the Alternative Breaks Program, through which I planned and went on community service trips in the US and Central America. I studied abroad in Prague, Czech Republic and Cairo, Egypt my junior year of college. When I graduated, I moved to Cairo, Egypt to study Arabic and teach at a private elementary school. While I was there I worked as a private tutor for Egyptian families. I tutored students in English and also math, essay writing, and test preparation. I am currently working at a public charter school for the performing arts in Washington, DC as an Assistant Kindergarten teacher. As a young tutor, I relate well to students. After spending all day with a large class of students, I love to sit down and focus one on one during tutoring sessions.
Most importantly, I want every lesson to be fun. There is nothing wrong with laughing a little while learning a lot. I strive for my students to look forward to our sessions and for every student to walk away from a session with a greater understanding of the subject and a smile on his or her face.
A little about me - I am from New Jersey and very proud of it! I love to spend time at the Jersey Shore with my parents, two sisters, and brother. I have an adorable kitten name Lemieux who greets me every day after work with a lovely meow. I play on a DC Kickball team for fun and recently ran a half marathon. I still study Arabic and love practicing it with my Egyptian friends here in DC.
