I completed my BA in three years, from Emmanuel College. I majored in Political Science, concentrating on American Politics and International Relations. I also graduated with distinction in my field. I am planning to go back to school for a MPP, with a concentration in educational policy.

I began tutoring in high school, I worked with incoming juniors to help them prepare for their AP exams. In college, I was fortunate enough to be the American Politics tutor. I worked with many foreign students, helping them to understand how our system works (or doesn't) and why. I was also a research assistant and instructional assistant in college.

As a teacher, I believe in listening first. In order to find where the disconnect really is, a teacher has to hear his/her student. From there, I identify the students learning style. I'm a visual learner, so I always have a lot of graphic organizers and templates ready to go. Breaking something down, from essay writing to foreign affairs to algebra - is vital. The breakdown process may look different for different students, but we'll get there, together.

I also have high expectations. If you set the bar low, your students will only go so far. If you set the bar fairly high, and power with your student - he/she will reach those high expectations. It just takes a lot of persistence, a bit of laughter, and many revisions.

Outside of Academia, I love to be outside exploring the city and the countryside as well. This summer I went kayaking a lot, explored neighborhoods I'm not familiar with, browsed every farmer's market and paddle boarded. Fall is my favorite season though, to say I'm looking forward to apple picking and baking one too many pumpkin treats would be an understatement. I also love to travel. I have traveled throughout Europe and served in the Peace Corps for over two years as well, I was in East Africa.
