When I was young, I struggled with school. I was more focused on my performance on the sports field than I was on my performance in the classroom. My love of learning came only after I spent several summers being tutored by fantastic teachers who helped me develop connections to the material in a way that was both relatable and fun. I learned the value of great educators those summers, and I came to appreciate the importance of strong communication between the student and educator.
I received my Bachelor of Arts degrees in Government and Spanish from Franklin & Marshall College in Pennsylvania and went on to receive a Master of Arts degree in Latin American Studies, with a concentration in inter-American Affairs, from the Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University. Before moving to South Florida, I spent seven years in Washington, D.C. working in international affairs, as well as in government advocacy and public policy. I look forward to helping you with Spanish Language and Literature, History and Government, or Writing and English Language. When I'm not tutoring, I enjoy playing sports, staying active, and finding fun, new recipes to cook.
My goal as a tutor is not only to help you understand the material, but also to help you develop your own unique learning tools to benefit your long-term educational growth.
