I am currently a second year law student at Harvard Law School. I am passionate about public interest law, particularly immigration and criminal defense.
I graduated in 2011 from Washington University in St. Louis, where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology and Spanish, with a minor in Applied Linguistics. After graduating, I worked as a Peace Corps volunteer in Africa (Cape Verde and Mozambique). While there, I taught English, Entrepreneurship and Biology at a local high school. I also started an English Theatre Club and worked on community development projects. I have taught high school in Chile and Africa, as well as college-level Spanish subsection classes while at Washington University. I have experience tutoring English and Spanish to all age levels. I have also tutored writing and job search and career planning skills, but my primary experience is in teaching SAT and LSAT test prep.
In high school, I completed the International Baccalaureate (IB) program, with particular success in European History and World Literature. I feel comfortable teaching a majority of high school subjects, but my favorite subject to tutor is Test Prep, particularly the SAT and LSAT. I enjoy introducing students to the exams and preparing them for success on test day. I think becoming familiar with the form and content of the test can make all the difference! I also enjoy teaching study skills so that students can excel both in their individual study time and during our study sessions.
I love music, theatre, volunteering and traveling. I believe in the importance of experiencing cultures that are different from their own and, in doing so, learning more about yourself.
