I received my Bachelor of Arts from Johns Hopkins University, with my degree in Anthropology, and a minor in Women and Gender Studies. Education has always been extremely important in my life, and subsequently I have sought out ways to share my knowledge with students as a tutor. I have tutored students ranging from the first grade through high school; every age/grade brings new and exciting challenges. I have experience successfully tutoring all general school subjects (English, History, Math, Science, Spanish), including English (ESL) to Spanish-speaking students, but my favorite subject to tutor would probably have to be English. I love challenging my students to accurately and grammatically express themselves through writing stories and learning new vocabulary words. I enjoy teaching them tricks to eventually self-correct themselves, use context clues to answer reading questions, and gain a better understanding of their English material. As a tutor, my style is to have fun with my students and establish a friendly bond. I find that this makes the learning come much easier, and paints a picture of their understanding beyond the homework page. I like to know what my students are interested in, how they enjoy school, their favorite subjects, their day-to-day, their extra-curricular activities, etc. Usually I find that my students already possess all the tools within to overcome any academic difficulty they may be experiencing. They simply need a little personal attention and encouragement to bring out their confidence and comfort with a subject, as well as a platform where they feel safe to ask any questions. Outside of tutoring, I enjoy staying active through yoga, running, dance, horseback riding, and sports. I also love to read and discover new music.
