I am a graduate of Emory University, where I received a Bachelor of Science with a double major in Anthropology & Human Biology and Spanish. I have eight years of tutoring experience in a range of subjects including algebra, geometry, Spanish, SAT (all sections), college essay writing, composition, vocabulary, literature, speed reading, history, biology, study skills, and elementary/middle school general subjects. Additionally, I was employed as an ESL tutor by my university for two and a half years and enjoy working with students at all levels of English language learning. I have worked mostly one-on-one with students, but also taught English classes for a summer academy. I am comfortable with everything from homework help to developing my own curricula to meet students' individual needs. I am patient with students and able to develop learning methods based on their needs, often while balancing these with the needs of the group. I focus on the positive when teaching; for example, a prompt initially deemed "boring" by a student does not mean the student should not enjoy writing the essay. I have tutored eager learners and I have tutored students close to failing, and I handle each experience as a separate challenge. Education requires an innovative approach on the part of teachers. I believe the methods I have developed and my focus on helping each student succeed make me an excellent educator. In my spare time, I love running, playing violin and viola, reading, writing, paddle-boarding, and hiking.
