I received my Bachelor of Arts from the University of Massachusetts Boston with a degree in Classics and graduated with honors and magna cum laude. I then obtained my Master of Arts from the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona in Classics with a focus on archaeology. I am currently mulling applying to law programs but I am going to take a few years off before I apply. During my college career, I have traveled to France, Britain, Italy, Greece, Egypt, Turkey, and would like to travel to many more countries! I tutored special needs students in Math, History and English during my time in high school. In my Master's program, I was a teaching assistant for four classes and mentored and helped many students of all different backgrounds for my entire two years there. In one specific case, I tutored a student in Ancient Greek for two to three a week for a semester.
I can tutor in World History, European History, AP European and World History, Latin, all subjects of Writing including Grammar and Mechanics, and Public Speaking. Although I enjoy tutoring many subjects, European History is my favorite because I find it rewarding to show students how important past events still are to contemporary times. My methodology for tutoring is to help students identify answers that they can eliminate immediately and work together to find the right answer logically. I am patient teacher but I think the students benefits the most when they teach me the material because I can assess how comfortable the students are with the material and take the appropriate actions to help the students become more comfortable with the material.
As for activities I find interesting, I play ice hockey regularly and follow all of the local sports teams. I played track and field and cross country in high school. While I like playing video games from time to time, I enjoy reading books of any topic (politics, sports, fiction, non-fiction, etc.) and watch many popular television shows. In general, I am a relaxed person who enjoys working with anyone willing to apply themselves.
