I recently received my Master's Degree in Media and Communications from the London School of Economics. Prior to that, I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Pennsylvania, where I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English. I have tutored a wide range of students both as part of my college curriculum and also a private tutor. While at Penn, I pursued my passion for child advocacy and education by participating in ABCS courses, serving as an active member of Big Brothers Big Sisters and working at the City of Philadelphia Department of Human Services to promote funding for after school programs. As a private tutor, I have worked with ages 5-15 in subject areas including Elementary Math, Reading, Writing, AP US History and Government, Literature and general study skills. My favorite subjects to tutor are Reading, Writing and History because I find that students can often find a great deal of personal meaning in these subjects which is very rewarding. My tutoring style is one that allows students to feel comfortable and respected. I am confident that any student can master whatever subject they set their mind to, and that this can be accomplished when tutors and students work together to determine how the student best learns. By being patient, observant and kind, I get to know my students both academically and as people. Outside of working, I love to have fun by taking dance classes, running, cooking, traveling or watching a funny movie.
