I graduated from Northwestern University and received a Bachelor of Arts Cum Laude in with departmental honors History and Political Science. I then got my Masters in Teaching, and have spent 8 years teaching middle school. I also was a Fulbright Scholar.
While in college, I tutored in a local elementary school, working with kindergarten, second grade, and fifth grade students throughout my time there. I worked with these students in small groups and individual settings and tutored them in a variety of subjects, including math, reading comprehension and fluency, writing, handwriting, social studies, and science. I also coached competitive high school debate (following my own participation in the event throughout high school), and taught students research, writing, argumentation, and public speaking skills, as well as about international and domestic politics.
I am comfortable tutoring in a variety of subjects, particularly at the elementary and middle school level. I am most excited about US history, English, writing, and public speaking. I am deeply passionate about educational equity, and firmly believe that every child has a right to an excellent education. As a tutor and teacher, I work to ensure that my students demonstrate growth in a subject area, in general academic skills, and in character.
When not working with students, I can probably be found exploring cities, reading, making art, trying new foods, and chatting with friends.
