I completed my BA in three years, from Emmanuel College in Boston, MA. I majored in Political Science, concentrating on American Politics and International Relations. I also graduated with distinction in my field. After working for four years, I went back to school to study public policy at the London School of Economics. I graduated in 2017, with a dual degree, MPP/MPA and a focus on social policy. I received merit (honors).
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. My work at an education nonprofit had me in the classroom for two years, working directly with students, as did my time serving in the Peace Corps.
As a teacher, I believe in listening first. In order to find where the bottleneck 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.
Outside of Academia, I love to be outside exploring the city and the countryside as well. Fall is my favorite season, I love to be outside whenever possible. I enjoy reading, volunteering, and roaming new neighborhoods. 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.
