I am a graduate of Staten Island Technical High School, one of New York City's specialized high schools. Upon graduation, I enrolled at Amherst College, an elite liberal arts college in Massachusetts. I am working towards my Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Sociology. While at college, I participate in various tutoring programs. I work with students ranging from elementary school to high school, and I have experience tutoring online and one on one. In addition, I have experience working in summer educational programs focusing on math, reading, and science lessons for elementary and middle school students. Although I have experience tutoring a variety of subjects, I find the most joy in tutoring English. In my experience, my passion for literature and writing has made helping struggling students in this area more enjoyable and more successful. I find it rewarding to watch students advance and eventually share in my passion. By building a connection with my students, I offer them personal support in their educational endeavors. I believe this support gives my students the tools and perseverance necessary to be successful in their future. In my spare time, I love music, sports, and reading. At school, I play the saxophone in the Jazz Ensemble and participate in club soccer.
