I received my M.A. in Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies from The University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, my B.A. in History from The University of Wisconsin-Madison, and am currently working towards my PhD in Historical Theology at St. Louis University. After receiving my M.A., I moved to Moscow, Russia, where I studied Russian Language at Moscow International University, and taught English as a Second Language to children and young adults. My work and volunteer experience includes free-lance editing, Russian-to-English translating, tutoring ESL, teaching in a child development center, and managing a coffee shop. My teaching philosophy is entirely student-centered. I plan, adapt, and implement new strategies according to each student’s individual needs and progress. I see myself as a guide, dedicated to finding the right approach in order to help each student realize his or her own knowledge and potential. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy being active and doing anything outdoors. I am excited about the opportunity to assist and encourage students to improve their writing and other academic skills!
